Salted Caramel Gookie Dough Ice Cream

You will need: 

For Salted Butterscotch ice cream:

  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter melted
  • 165g of dark brown sugar or raw sugar
  • 5 - 6 egg yolks
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp coarse salt
  • 355ml of whole milk
  • 355ml of whipping cream


Salted Butterscotch ice cream:

Place the 3 tbsp of butter, 165g of sugar, egg yolks, vanilla extract and 1 tsp of coarse salt in a medium-sized saucepan. Whisk well until the mixture is emulsified and is creamy and smooth.

Whisk in the milk and cream.

Heat the custard over medium heat until it registers at 75 degrees Celsius while whisking frequently. If you don't have a thermometer, heat and whisk until the custard is steaming but NOT boiling.

Allow the custard to cool down to room temperature. Cover and chill in the fridge for at least 3-4 hours (or overnight).

Prepare the Gookie Dough while the ice cream base is chilling.

Salted Butterscotch Gookie Dough Ice Cream:

Churn the salted butterscotch ice cream custard in your ice cream machine according to the manufacturer's instructions. BUT, only churn the ice cream to a soft-serve consistency, as you have to fold in the Gookie Dough pieces by hand at this stage.

While the ice cream is churning, using a sharp knife, cut the Gookie Dough slab into small pieces. Keep the pieces frozen until needed.

When the ice cream is at the soft-serve stage, remove it from your ice cream machine and fold in the Gookie Dough pieces by hand.

Then, transfer the ice cream into a freezer container and freeze until the ice cream is completely hardened (about 4-8 hours).

Serve with fudge sauce or whipped cream.
