Homemade Chocolate Chip Caramel Swirl Ice Cream Sundae's

Choc Chip Ice Cream
I don't know about you, but sometimes a smooth, ice cream sundae smothered in a warm, gooey topping is just the thing. I'm not usually an ice cream person, but it's my husband's favorite dessert. He is a simple man when it comes to the flavors he likes, but chocolate chip is at the top of his list. He's been complaining lately that he wished the store bought brands used whole chocolate chips, so I decided to whip him up a batch that fit his needs.

I couldn't stop with the chocolate chips though, I decided to swirl in a nice thick layer of homemade caramel sauce. This stuff is sooo good, I tend to eat it right of the spoon. Yum!

Of course, it doesn't hurt to add an extra drizzle of caramel over the finished product. I've never heard of too much caramel. Have you?

Homemade Chocolate Chip Caramel Swirl Ice Cream
Serves: 4  Printable Recipe

Chocolate Chip Ice Cream:
1 cup milk
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup sugar
1 tbsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup mini chocolate chips

Homemade Caramel Sauce:
(caramel recipe from The Pioneer Woman)
1 cup brown sugar
4 tbsp salted butter
1/2 cup half & half
1 tbsp vanilla extract

In a saucepan over low heat, heat the milk and sugar until the sugar is dissolved. Add the cream and vanilla, stir and allow to cool.

In a saucepan over low heat, combine the brown sugar, butter and half & half. Cook for about 7 minutes until it begins to thicken. Add the vanilla and cook for another minute or two, until slightly thickened. Allow to cool.

Pour the cooled cream mixture into an electric ice cream maker and make according to manufacturers directions. When the ice cream has thickened, add the chocolate chips and stir to combine. Then add about 1/2 cup of the caramel and stir gently with a spoon to swirl. Place in a covered container and allow to set up in the freezer at least 4 hours or overnight.

Serve sundaes with extra homemade caramel sauce drizzled on top. Eat and enjoy!Choc Chip Ice Cream
