This ice cream is good. No - I mean, this ice cream is GOOOOD. Holy moly, I never expected it to be this delicious! I've never had the Caramel Macchiato drink (although I just may be tempted to now), so I have no clue if this ice cream tastes like it, but I'm telling you, unless you really detest coffee you will love this. No, I take that back - even if you don't like coffee, you will love this. The pairing of caramel and coffee flavors is just simply, dreamy delicious - something new for me. I like my ice cream rich (and most often with eggs) so I used half-and-half instead of the milk. Also, I've made ice cream often enough to know that a full cup of sugar would be waaaay too sweet, so I cut it back to 3/4 cup and it was simply perfect. In fact, everything about this ice cream is simply perfect! It is so rich, creamy and gooey it needs no topping or any other embellishment. I didn't even wait for it to ripen (harden) in the freezer before eating it. Because after trying a taste of it, I couldn't.
My family and I weren't overly crazy about this recipe. My first problem was that, even though I mixed the milk and sugar VERY well, when the ice cream was done, I could feel the sugar in my mouth. If I make this again, I'll dissolve the sugar in the milk on the stove like other recipes call for. Another thing was that the caramel pretty much just dissolved in the ice cream. (I used Smuckers Caramel ice cream topping) I layered it in a container like the directions say, and after a few hours in the freezer, I couldn't even see the caramel. The ice cream didn't taste much like caramel, it ended up just tasting waayy too sweet, even though I backed off on the white sugar.
This ice cream isn't even frozen yet and we are having a hard time staying out of the freezer. I cut the sugar back to about 3/4 cup and used about 1/2 cup homemade caramel sauce. I can't wait for it to freeze. Mmmmmmmm.
We just made this along with 4 other flavors of homemade ice cream and this was our favorite! I found some instant coffee at the store that came in single serve packets and it was hazelnut flavored! I think that added to the greatness of this wonderful recipe! It took 4 single serve packs to make 2 tbsn. We mixed thick caramel topping into the ice cream just before putting into the freezer. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
I just bought an ice cream maker last week and tried to make this ice cream this weekend, but unfortunately it didn't work well.. I don't know what's going wrong, but the ice cream wasn't thicken even though it had been churned in the machine for 1.5 hrs :( . I was so brokenhearted since I've tasted the mixture and it's sooo delicious.
Has anybody faced same problem with me and found how to fix that?
Shut up! I love this. I am the happiest pregnant woman in the all the world right now. I used fat free 1/2 and 1/2 instead and heavy cream and it is so amazing. Yum. Thanks!
I made this for my coffee-loving husband, whose favorite drink at the coffee shop is a caramel macchiato. Personally, I don't drink coffee, nor do I really enjoy ice cream. But after making this, I had to give it a taste, and Naples was right - even if you don't love coffee, you will like this ice cream. I had a tiny bite, and another bite, and another.... My husband said that it is so much better than the caramel macchiato ice cream from the store. Compliments to the recipe submitter - this one is definitely a hit in this house!
Very Very Very Good.I used Creamy Fudge Dessert Sauce instead of Caramel.
