No matter the season, this statement rings true for me all year long: give me ice cream or give me death.
I could eat ice cream for all three meals. It is one of my all-time favorite comfort foods, right up there with mac n cheese, fried chicken, and tacos. Seriously if I could get just one doctor to approve a diet that consisted solely of just mac n cheese, fried chicken, tacos, and ice cream I would be the happiest gal in America.
Although some may say ice cream is a little out of season right now (ahem, those people are wrong), then this particular ice flavor should make up for it. This is Brown Sugar Cinnamon Toffee Ice Cream. It has all those warm, earthy spicey flavors that everyone loves about fall. It may not make sense to describe an ice cream flavor as “warm” but after you try this you’ll understand what I mean, promise!
When I bought my ice cream maker almost exactly a year ago, I knew making homemade ice cream would become a regular part of my routine. I’ve made a lot of ice cream over the last year but this recipe is obviously my FAVORITE so far because it’s that good! The chopped toffee pieces add a nice crunch to the ice cream, and when you scoop this on top of a waffle cone the soft/crunchy texture balance is juuuuuust right.
You’re going to want more than one scoop of this ice cream though, I promise. It tastes like fall, and quite simply it will make your life better. Trust me, it’s improved mine!
