Burnt Caramel Ice Cream

We’ve been working on a burnt (dark) caramel ice cream for our shops, trying it out on willing customers, and trying to improve it. It’s trickier than I would have thought, and I’m not satisfied with the result yet, even though it’s good and is selling quite well.

I am hoping we can make it much more than good. I’m hoping it can become an unforgettable flavour, since in my mind it has the potential of being something very special indeed.

It’s both sweet and mysterious, simple and sophisticated. I want it darker, more intense, and we will be working on ways to make it more so.

I would love feedback, so if you’re near one of our shops, please have a taste (we do offer tastes for free) and please let me know what you think!

I’ll post a recipe here as soon as we have it sorted!

    Hi Kieran, are you adding salt when making this or at the end as a garnish?

    Hi Kieran – I so enjoy ice cream and the Burnt Caramel Ice Cream sounds amazing. I really must get to Dingle soon it’s been a while but now I know where you are it’s a good excuse

    Actually, what we do is combine the two flavours at the shop – so a bit of this ice cream, and a bit of the sea salt ice cream. However, you could certainly add sea salt as a garnish!

    I would love a recipe for this. I reckon it would be great with a pinch of salt added too.

    This flavour is delicious. A recipe would be great, although I’m sure I’d never be able to come close to replicating it.
