butterscotch ice cream recipe

Making homemade butterscotch ice cream is easy and not difficult. Praline is made and added to ice cream. Addition of praline gives that crispy bite when eating butterscotch ice cream. If you do not want to make praline, then you can even add store brought butterscotch chips in the ice cream.

In this butterscotch ice cream, I have shared both the recipes of making praline as well as the ice cream. for a more detailed post on the praline, you can check here ???? Praline recipe.

Generally, the readymade store brought butterscotch ice cream has a yellow color. I have not added any color in the ice cream. For a yellow color, you can add a bit of turmeric or saffron. Addition of saffron will infuse some of the saffron’s aromatic fragrance in the ice cream.

Making both the praline and butterscotch ice cream is very easy. the recipe is similar to the Ice cream recipe i had shared earlier.

How to make butterscotch ice cream

A) making praline:
1. Take 10 to 12 cashews in a mortar-pestle. You can add any nuts of your choice like almonds, walnuts, pecans or roasted peanuts.
