Homade Vanilla Ice Cream with Caramel Swirl

I have wanted to make ice cream for so long, but I just never got around to it - well, yesterday, I decided it was time!

It was super easy and I recommend it to anyone who wants to do it but hasn't yet.

I started with a basic vanilla ice cream recipe from the manufacturer's booklet, and just added the caramel.


1 cup whole milk
3/4 cup sugar
2 cups heavy cream
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 pinch salt
Caramel topping


Mix the whole milk, sugar and salt, either in a stand mixer or with a hand mixer, until the sugar is dissolved.

Stir in the heavy cream and the vanilla, and store in the refrigerator for one to two hours.

Place your frozen ice cream bowl in the machine, and turn on your ice cream maker.  Let it mix until thickened - 15 to 20 minutes for my model.  It will not look as hard as regular ice cream, but that's okay.

Pour the ice cream into a container and drizzle the caramel topping to your liking.  Using a spatula, stir the caramel into the ice cream very gently, so ribbons can be seen in the final product.

(Sorry there's no photo after I swirled it in - I was having too much fun!)

Then drizzle more caramel over the top, and place in your freezer for at least two hours.

It was delicious - super creamy and so satisfying! 

I think I over-mixed the caramel, because there aren't as many ribbons of it as I'd like, but there's always next time, right?  I'm so glad that I've jumped into ice cream making, and I have so many other ideas now.

Hope you enjoyed this recipe,
