After months of waiting, I finally saw Hershey's 100% Cocoa powder box in Al Raya Supermarket here in Yanbu. I have gone hunting for some cocoa powder in all the supermarkets but all they had were Heinz's Dark Chocolate powder. But what is really strange is this Hershey's box will expire by year-end! So where have they been hoarding these? or is it all the "about to expire" products being transported to Yanbu? :-( Anyways, now that I have to use it up before it expires, I planned on making some chocolate ice cream.

Salted Caramel Chocolate No-Churn Ice Cream

Making Salted caramel was in my to-do list for months. I have been wanting to try it ever since I had Cinnabon's salted caramel cinnamon roll from an airport outlet in Saudi. It remained somewhere back of my mind that something like Salt and caramel can exist and deliciously tasty! So that thought just reappeared as a pin during one of my Pinterest session - which I not only pinned but went ahead and made it right away!

I had no idea or plans on what to make out of the salted caramel. While it was cooling down, I went on to prepare my planned chocolate ice cream constantly thinking in my head if I have to do salted caramel mixed nuts as toppings over my ice cream etc.. all the while I was pouring the salted caramel itself into my ice cream batter! :-P Talk about clashing ideas within your thoughts! I was sceptical but just went ahead with my gut instinct and so glad I did. 

Salted Caramel Chocolate No-Churn Ice Cream

I am really struggling to describe the taste of this union of salt, sugar, chocolate! I can only tell you that I have fallen in love with it and can have it any time of the day. This is super easy to make. You have to HAVE to stand next to the pan while making the caramel with eyes glued on the pan and hands-free to be able to take it off at the right time.

Salted Caramel Chocolate No-Churn Ice Cream

Caramel haters, including me - the only reason I never liked caramel chocolates was that it makes a mess in my teeth and hard to get around it and chew neatly. I think there is no way of eating posh if you are eating a caramel stuffed chocolate as you will end up with a massive jaw workout! :-P But trust me, the ice cream with salted caramel is a must-taste as it does not behave the same way!

I still have some Salted Caramel leftover, thinking maybe salted caramel popcorns?

  1. Ooh, that looks delicious. Unfortunately, I don't have most of those ingredients. I don't keep sugar in the house, for good reason! But I can tell from those photos that this ice cream has the intense chocolate favour I yearn for!
