Hot Off The Presses Funny
Hello Summer, I just wanted to say that I love you. I love your long, relaxing and fun filled days that are best accompanied with cool treats, good eats and lots of backyard ice cream sundae’s. Because when the weather is fine, that means it’s ice cream time. I have never looked forward to the summer time so much as I have this year. Perhaps that is because we had a crazy busy school year with loads of homework, projects and after school extracurricular activities but let me tell ya, I am most definitely looking forward to relaxed days lounging by the pool while watching my kids splash around and most of all-I’m looking forward to Blue Bunny ice cream sundae’s.
Let’s All Scream For Ice Cream
We’re big fans of ice cream here. There’s nothing that screams “Americana” more to me than a patriotic inspired Blue Bunny ice cream sundae, and not surprisingly it’s insanely easy to create. All you need is delicious Blue Bunny Homemade Vanilla ice cream, fresh berries such as strawberries, blueberries and blackberries and of course: my homemade salted caramel recipe all topped with a doll up of whipped cream. Blue Bunny homemade vanilla ice cream is as close as you can possibly get to making the stuff at home, but it’s so much faster and keeps longer too. And the scoopablity is unmatched! You can get Blue Bunny homemade vanilla ice cream from your local Walmart, just like me!
Blue Bunny homemade vanilla ice cream is creamy, smooth and delicious and when paired with my ultra sweet salted caramel sauce and fresh tart berries the flavor combination makes an explosive treat!
Salted Caramel Sauce Recipe
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup half and half
1/2 stick of (real not substitute) butter
Pinch of salt
1/4 tablespoon of pure vanilla extract
Mix the brown sugar, half and half, butter, vanilla and salt in large heavy saucepan. Cook and stir over medium heat. Whisk constantly for 6 minutes until slightly thickened. Let cool and then store in an air tight container in the refrigerator.
This recipe will yield enough salted caramel dip for several sundae’s, so you can cut this recipe in half to suit your needs. Remember to cook the recipe low and slow to create a smooth, creamy texture. Also, the recipe will coagulate as it cools so stir before drizzling.
