It just sounds fabulous. Let me repeat Dulce de Leche Ice Cream.
If you have read my recent post, you know I love dulce de leche. I love it that much that when I was a boy I almost blew the kitchen.
Luckily, I’ve grown up, and I don’t attempt to make homemade dulce de leche. Actually, I had such an idea a few years back, but Andrey callously banned it. I mean, what was he scared about?
A couple of years back, when we were still living in Russia, my university mate moved to Brazil. In fact, I discovered some Brasil recipes thanks to her. I remember she told once that dulce de leche produced in the South American is the best. That time I was intrigued. Now I totally agree with that remark. Most of the dulce de leche you could find in the Canadian stores produced in Argentina. And it’s so good.
I mean, it’s absolutely dangerous to buy a jar. For the past couple of months, I bought dulce de leche few times to use it in cooking, and since I haven’t posted any related recipes you may freely assume how did I end up.
This Dulce de Leche Ice Cream is with the distinctive caramel flavor. Even though I used a good amount of the caramel spread, it wasn’t overly sweet to my taste (I didn’t use much sugar, though). Besides, incorporating the ground coffee helped to balance the sweetness out. Still, you can adjust the amount of the ingredients to your taste.
All right. I feel I’ve got to let you go.
Let you go to the kitchen. To make this fantastic Dulce de Leche Ice Cream.
If you don’t have a jar of caramel spread, you can always make it from scratch. Just try not to blow up the kitchen – you will need it soon for your Christmas food adventures (Santa is waiting for his cookies too!)
