My Caramel Butter Pecan Ice Cream!!!

Hello, all! As you saw before, my mango soft serve experiment didn’t go quite as I planned it! However, I am not one to give up that easily. I came across another recipe that I was going to try. I have  a whole quart of heavy cream to use up so why not?! These are all the ingredients I used:


  • Heavy whipping cream
  • 1 can of condensed milk
  • chopped pecans (as many as you like)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • caramel sundae sauce (as much as you like)


I started by hand whipping the cream. It took about 20 minutes. My mixer was in the dishwasher so I couldn’t use it. My shoulder was killing me once I was done but I was proud of myself. I whipped it real hard, whip, whipped it real hard! (I couldn’t resist) I mixed until there was more cream sticking to the whisk than the bowl.

Hand-whipped cream!

I had already mixed  the condensed milk with the butter, vanilla extract and pecans earlier so they would be ready to mix in once I got this cream whipped. I mixed it in well with the whisk and it was a thick cake-batter consistency. I placed the mix into two plastic containers to freeze for about 6 hours.


Once they froze for about an hour or 2, I took them out and added my caramel drizzle. I wanted something that would thicken in the freezer so I opted for a caramel sundae topping instead of the caramel flavor sauce. I drew zigzags across the top and dragged my toothpick across for some pretty ribboning and placed back into the freezer overnight.


My parents love butter pecan ice cream so I set aside some for them. I hope they like it! I am going to get it to them tonight.

These are the finished results of my caramel butter pecan ice cream. Also, unlike its predecessor mango soft serve, it passed the taste test. It tasted just like butter pecan that my parents usually buy, maybe even better.

I might as well go ahead and confess. This ice cream was made as a topping to go with a ginger apple pie I was working on as well! I will be posting the results of that later! If you haven’t realized by now, I have a sweet tooth!

Of course, this summer I am going to be trying all types of ice cream recipes! vanilla, caramel, cookies and cream, mint chocolate chip, rocky road, cherry vanilla, strawberry! I can’t wait and I will be sharing them all!

I would love to hear some of your ice cream recipes!

Thanks for stopping by!
