I don’t have much to say about this ice cream, except “WOW!” Like seriously, wow. This ice cream is amazing and dangerous, and I shouldn’t be allowed to have all of it in my freezer.
In my quest to turn Girl Scout cookies into even more amazing desserts, I started out with the Thin Mint Cheesecake last week. (Thin Mints are my second fave GS cookie, with my first being the Samoa/Caramel Delight!) I thought about making cupcakes or cookies, but these ideas felt a little too played out…
So then ice cream popped into my head! It’s been a while since I’ve made ice cream, and spring is coming, so why not?! (Though I do love ice cream in the winter more than in the summer, but I’m strange like that… ;) )
This ice cream starts off with a brown butter custard base, which is swirled with coconut caramel sauce and a fudge ripple. Yes, it’s a little complicated. When I was dreaming up this ice cream, I texted my other Emily (my go-to friend when dreaming up crazy things), worried that I was over-complicating the recipe. I thought about changing out the fudge ripple for chocolate chunks to simplify it. But when is anything worth doing easy?? :P
So, if you do want to simplify the recipe, you can use semisweet chocolate chunks instead of the fudge ripple. The ice cream will end up with much more caramel and coconut though, and I can’t guarantee it will be as good as this version!
One thing to note is that this recipe makes enough of the caramel coconut sauce and fudge ripple for two batches of ice cream. So if you eat all the first batch, you can make another! ;)
