Experimental Icecream – Homemade Salted Butterscotch and Caramelised Almonds – Naughty.. but nice..

Everyone on the planet appears to be on a health kick at the moment – no sugar, no fat, no booze, running around getting hot and sweaty – if that is you, good on you, I admire your commitment to yourself.

I, however, have an Icecream Machine and I am not afraid to use it 😉

I have been looking around on the inter web, and stumbled across this wonderful  Recipe

I have, of course fiddled with it, so this is my adaptation.


I used a tin of Lidl condensed milk and put it in the basket of my Thermomix and filled with water till it was upto the top of the tin, cook for 95 mins heat 100 speed stir and when the time is up, leave it in the bowl to cool completely.


When cooled, empty out the water and dry off the Thermomix jug. When you open the tin, the very top still looks very pale, but, when you empty the caramel into the jug, you will see that gorgeous Dulce de Leche colour.


add 600ml double cream, and a large pinch of sea salt, a good blob of vanilla bean paste, mix for a minute, speed 2 no heat, just to combine.


Pour the mix into the Icecream maker bowl with the Icecream blade and pop into the fridge for an hour.


Turn on the machine for 40 minutes, adding 200g of crushed Caramelised Almonds for the last 5 minutes.


I made the Almonds for Christmas, if you want to know how click Here


This is dangerously delicious- you have been warned……

I tipped the Icecream into a lock and lock box and put into the freezer for weekend treats 😍 And to stop me from scoffing the lot 🤗

Hi - I'm a 49 yo Mum to 3 kids - Jordan (23), Grace (21) and Max (19). And Wife to my lovely Husband, Dave and step mum to 4 fur babies, our cats Eric, Ernie, Cilla and Bobbie. We live on the beautiful Isle of Wight, Hubby and I were born here, and just love our home. As I hurtle towards 50, my life as a full time (working) parent is coming to an end, with my eldest 2 kids living their own lives, and my youngest who started University in September. I realised that this is not a time to be sad, but a time to take time to spend time on some of the things I enjoy doing - mainly cooking, crafting and creating Pinterest boards for said thing s :) This blog is just a way for me to record the next stages of our lives - I hope you enjoy my ramblings...
