Being honest about one’s skill set is very important. When it comes to cooking and curating recipes, I am a novice at best. One thing I have managed to master is no-churn Ice cream. Possibly because it only consists of two ingredients: condensed milk and heavy whipping cream. No-churn ice cream doesn’t require an ice cream maker, plus it’s super easy and fun to make!
I decided to make some fun recipes with the contents of a goodie box I recently received from the French Food & Beverage Federation containing some of France’s Fall and Summer favorites. Read on for my no-churn caramel candy corn ice cream recipe!
Currently, I am infatuated with no-churn ice cream! Coincidentally, this obsession began in the midst of Hurricane Harvey. During this time I realized the true healing powers of ice cream. The way it can just lift your spirits is truly magical. My no-churn vanilla brookie ice cream was a huge hit with my husband, so I decided to make some more!
I recently received an influencer box from the French Food & Beverage Federation that contained some really interesting European fall and summer favorites. In the spirit of Fall and Halloween, I thought I would whip up some no-churn caramel candy corn ice cream using the CaramBar Caramels to make caramel sauce and some candy corn I had lying around.
Candy corn is one of those seasonal items that you either love or hate. I love it, and am not ashamed to share that I eat candy corn year round. Did y’all even know candy corn was sold year round? The Valentine’s Day edition is the best, because it is cinnamon flavored, but I also have an affinity for the Christmas edition because it’s purty!
Due to no-churn ice cream’s simple ingredients, you can really go crazy by adding all kinds of fun mix-in’s. For this no-churn caramel candy corn recipe I added brownie bits in addition to the CaramBar caramel sauce and candy corn.
The process of making no-churn ice cream is simple. In addition to its low complexity level, it’s ready to eat in 4-5 hours vs. 1-2 days like real ice cream. Simply whip your heavy whipping cream, stir in your condensed milk, add a few drops of vanilla extract and your choice of fun mix-ins like cookies, brownies, candy etc.. and freeze for 4-5 hours. Viola.. you have the most delicious no-churn ice cream!
1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
2 cups whipping cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup CaramBar Caramel Sauce
1/4 cup of roughly chopped candy corn
I kicked it up a notch by adding about a cup of crushed chocolate brownies I had laying around!
Using a medium bowl, pour in the whipping cream and use an electric mixer on medium speed to begin whipping until stiff peaks form.
Pour in the sweetened condensed milk and continue mixing on low speed until the mixture begins to thicken.
Add in the vanilla extract and mix until combined.
Using a spoon, stir in the chopped candy corn, crushed brownies and CaramBar caramel sauce
Pour mixture into and air tight glass pyrex dish and place the no-churn ice cream mixutre in the freezer for at least 6 hours.
