Welcome to another day of Ice Cream Week 2014! This year the event is hosted by Kim of Cravings of a Lunatic and Susan of The Girl in the Little Red Kitchen.  I teamed up with 25 amazing bloggers to treat you to tons of amazing ice cream recipes all week long – best week ever!

Since my Caramel Macchiato Cheesecake was such a big hit a couple of weeks ago, I figured why not run with that and make some ice cream with those same delicious flavors?!  Let me tell you folks, this is top quality soft serve ice cream that you would expect to get at the ice cream parlors – it’s really THAT good.  After trying one taste of it, I couldn’t stop eating it (yes, this is how I finally broke my juicing fast).  You will want to dip a spoon into the ice cream maker before it’s even done.

Even if you don’t love coffee, you will like this ice cream.   It’s full of fat, sugar and flavor – everything good you want in a dessert.  It is very rich and creamy and it does not need toppings or any other embellishment that might hide the good flavor (besides maybe some extra caramel sauce).

I will never buy ice cream from the grocery store ever again (I’m sure that’s a lie)…but this was just so simple and so delicious!  By the way, this is the ice cream maker I have and I love it!

Have your iced coffee and your ice cream in one amazing dessert! Caramel Macchiato Soft Serve Ice Cream is an ice cream lover’s delight.
Ingredients
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons instant coffee granules*
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • ½ cup caramel dessert sauce (homemade or store-bought), plus more for topping
*If you use regular granules they won't dissolve - it's OK but will just give the ice cream more texture and you will be able to see the coffee granules.
Instructions
  1. Whisk together milk, instant coffee granules, sugar, and salt in a large bowl until sugar is dissolved.
  2. Stir in the heavy cream, then cover and refrigerate until mixture is chilled, at least 2 hours.
  3. Pour the chilled mixture into an ice cream maker (this is the ice cream maker I use) and freeze according to manufacturer's directions until it reaches soft-serve consistency. Just eyeball it - when it looks like ice cream, it's done. Mine took a half hour.
  4. Transfer half of the ice cream to a one- or two-quart lidded plastic container. Pour half of the caramel sauce over the top, then repeat the layers with the remaining ice cream and caramel. Swirl the caramel into the ice cream using a knife or just mix it in with a spoon if you don't want the swirls and only the flavor.
  5. Cover surface with plastic wrap to prevent freezer taste/burn and put the top tightly on the container. For best results, ice cream should sit in the freezer for at least 2 hours or overnight. The longer you freeze it the firmer it will be.

    Ashley, I have such a weakness for creamy delights like this and with coffee that sounds amazing. The ice cream participation group has so many amazing ice-cream flavours. I think I would like one of each. Have a super day.

    Yum! Love that this ice cream doesn’t require a stove and can all be made in a single bowl. I’m not a fan of coffee, but I love coffee ice cream!

    This is definitely worth breaking the juice fast for! Soft serve is the best – I love how creamilicious it is, and I’ll take mine with extra caramel please! Drool worthy photos for sure 🙂

    You are absolutely killing me with this ice cream! Can you just ship a pint of it directly? 🙂

    Mmmm…just like the coffee treat you get at the coffee shop, only frozen. Yum!! This is a great way to get your afternoon caffeine kick when it’s hot outside!

    I don’t like coffee flavored things unfortunately but gosh that caramel dripping all over the place makes it look so good!

    Hubba hubba! That’s some serious ice cream!

    This ice cream looks so delicious! I love all the speckles and that caramel sauce looks amazing.

    I’m telling you, this soft serve situation would be dangerous for my now slimmer hips, but I would go in like hungry man.

    My favorite flavor of ice cream…. that is a tough choice. I normally either go with birthday cake or something that involves peanut butter and chocolate!

  17. August 20, 2014 at 8:43 PM #

    I love how creamy it looks in the container with the ice cream scooper!

    Ashley, bad girl! 🙂 You made me crave this absolutely decadent, addictive dessert (a.k.a. fabulous looking ice cream) in the wee hours of the night. Which means I’ll be eating it until end of day today until tomorrow! 🙂 What a problem, right? 😉

    I just want to lick that drizzling caramel off the side of the container…don’t judge.
