Directions

  1. Whisk together milk, instant coffee granules, sugar, and salt in a large bowl until sugar is dissolved. Stir in the heavy cream, then cover and refrigerate until chilled, at least 2 hours.
  2. Pour the chilled mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's directions until it reaches "soft-serve" consistency. Transfer half of the ice cream to a one- or two-quart lidded plastic container. Pour half of the caramel sauce over the top, then repeat the layers with the remaining ice cream and caramel. Swirl the caramel into the ice cream using a chopstick or knife. Cover surface with plastic wrap and seal. For best results, ice cream should ripen in the freezer for at least 2 hours or overnight.

This ice cream is good. No - I mean, this ice cream is GOOOOD. Holy moly, I never expected it to be this delicious! I've never had the Caramel Macchiato drink (although I just may be tempted to now), so I have no clue if this ice cream tastes like it, but I'm telling you, unless you really detest coffee you will love this. No, I take that back - even if you don't like coffee, you will love this. The pairing of caramel and coffee flavors is just simply, dreamy delicious - something new for me. I like my ice cream rich (and most often with eggs) so I used half-and-half instead of the milk. Also, I've made ice cream often enough to know that a full cup of sugar would be waaaay too sweet, so I cut it back to 3/4 cup and it was simply perfect. In fact, everything about this ice cream is simply perfect! It is so rich, creamy and gooey it needs no topping or any other embellishment. I didn't even wait for it to ripen (harden) in the freezer before eating it. Because after trying a taste of it, I couldn't.

This ice cream isn't even frozen yet and we are having a hard time staying out of the freezer. I cut the sugar back to about 3/4 cup and used about 1/2 cup homemade caramel sauce. I can't wait for it to freeze. Mmmmmmmm.

We just made this along with 4 other flavors of homemade ice cream and this was our favorite! I found some instant coffee at the store that came in single serve packets and it was hazelnut flavored! I think that added to the greatness of this wonderful recipe! It took 4 single serve packs to make 2 tbsn. We mixed thick caramel topping into the ice cream just before putting into the freezer. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
