Caramel Delight Ice Cream

Caramel Delight Ice Cream


It is girl scout cookie season and I decided to make an ice cream inspired by the famous Carmel Delight cookies.


This is an caramel ice cream with toasted coconut.


To make this Carmel Delight ice cream you will need:

2/3 cups of Caramel
2 cups of heavy cream
1 cup of whole milk
1/2 cup of sugar
1/3 cup of toasted coconut strands
pinch of salt
4 egg yolks



In a medium size saucepan combine the sugar milk and 1 cup cream. Bring it to a simmer then temper the 4 egg yolks with the the warm milk and cream. Pour the tempered egg yolks and into the saucepan add a pinch of salt and the caramel. Slowly bring the custard base up to 165 degrees and then place in a heat proof bowl and then the ice cream base in ice bath for 1 hour. Refrigerate the base for at least 4 hours or overnight and then churn in your ice cream machine when the ice cream is almost done stir in your toasted coconut. Place your ice cream in a freezer proof container and let the ice cream set for at least 4 hours in your freezer before eating.

These are one of my all time favorite girl scout cookies...so I can't even imagine how good it would be in ice cream form! Save me a pint! =)

Wow, looks absolutely beautiful! Can I just say we were eating Samoas (that chocolate-coconut girl scout cookie) at work today and we were madly devouring it. I bet this tastes so yummy. Dry ice package directed to my home address? Haha!

Bao you've put me in ice cream heaven!! These were my favorites aside from thin mints -- every year i'd try to limit myself to only a couple girl scout cookies a night. Of course I failed miserably and dominated both boxes in less than a few days :)

I can only imagine how long it'd take me to finish off this ice cream...

I agree with Quyen -- Caramel Delights are THE BEST Girl Scout cookie. Your ice cream version looks and sounds delectable. Can I have a pint too?
