Quickie Caramel Ice Cream

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 0 mins

As I live in South Africa, I'm sometimes uncertain whether you have the same ingredients in the USA. Sometimes the names of ingredients differ: we tend to use the British terms! I have no idea where this quickie came from, but was probably passed on by a friend, as it's handwritten. Use any popular chocolate bars which can be roughly grated or chopped up.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 16 fluid ounces pouring custard (shop-bought will do. It must not be too thick)
  • 8 ounces caramelised condensed milk
  • 4 -6 ounces roughly chopped-up chocolate candy bars (to taste, of the kind which contain nuts or toffee or nutty chocolate)
  • 8 fluid ounces fresh cream, whipped until quite firm


  1. Mix the custard with the caramel until well mixed.
  2. Stir in the chopped-up chocolate bars of your choice.
  3. Fold in the whipped cream.
  4. Freeze in a suitable container until firm.
  5. Yield: about 1 quart/4 cups/1 litre.

In Canada the caramalized sweetened condensed milk is called dulce le leche, often made by Presidents Choice. If not, u can put the condensed milk in the microwave, but stop to stir often. For the custard most super markets carry Birds brand powder..... extremely tasty! May take a little longer, but I am sure it will be worth it! Can't wait to try this recipe!

Zurie, No boxed custard in US, neither "carmelised" (not "caramelised")condensed milk! Wonderful recipe, easy to make,NOT QUICK! Have to caramelise condensed milk as well as the custard from scratch as custard powder is not readily available either.... Five stars for the ice cream! Tillie
