You know I love salted caramel. This is no secret! So you really can’t be surprised that I made an ice cream featuring the stuff! And it had to be no-churn of course! This ice cream is so good you guys! It’s smooth and creamy with chunks of toffee bits, salty pretzels and ribbon of salted caramel. I’m going to need a lot of this stuff once Oscar starts school!

Ugh, school! I’m not complaining, but I’m just anxiety-ridden over the whole thing. What would normally be just an exciting transition for Oscar to be going to grade 1, has become something so unknown and vague and risky. We get weekly emails with some sort of new update on procedures and I brace myself before reading each one. In my heart of hearts, I think that it will all work itself out and it will go ok. It’s just the unknown that makes me more nervous than anything!

Anyway, this is why I need ice cream.

And at least I’m getting one more camping trip in this weekend before the pandemonium starts. Sooo much camping this year. I have loved it but I won’t lie, I’m kind of looking forward to the break!

What is no-churn ice cream?

If you’re a frequent visitor to the website, you will already know what a fan I am of no-churn ice creams! It’s such a simple concept. If you’ve read this before and you don’t want to read it again, feel free to skip past this part. But if you’re new to no-churns, READ ON!

No-churn ice cream is the best invention. Smooth, creamy and only 2 ingredients in the base. All you need is heavy whipping cream, a can of condensed milk! The flavor possibilities and mix-ins are endless!

How do you make this no-churn salted caramel pretzel ice cream?

Start by whipping the cream until there are stiff peaks, then fold in the condensed milk. You’ll want to have chopped up pretzels and Skor bits on hand, as well as the salted caramel sauce. I always make my own, but you can use store-bought too! 

Layer the whipped cream mixture into a freezer-safe container, alternating with salted caramel sauce, pretzel pieces and Skor toffee bits. Use a spatula to swirl everything around together. Top it all off with pretzels and place it in the freezer for 4-5 hours!

Can you use light condensed milk?

Yes! It will work just as well as the regular stuff. I always end up using regular condensed milk. Just be sure not to try substituting evaporated milk for condensed milk in a no-churn ice cream recipe. It won’t work!

How long does no-churn ice cream last in the freezer?

It’ll last a good amount of time, just like regular ice cream that you buy from the store. Just be sure to keep it covered in an airtight container. It will get harder the longer it’s in the freezer, so I always find it tastes best over the first couple of days!

I hope you guys give this one a try. If you’re obsessed with no-churns like me, you’ll definitely need to try this version.

Happy weekending!

  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat the heavy whipping cream on high until stiff peaks begin to form. Remove the bowl from the stand, and using a rubber spatula, fold in the condensed milk until combined.
  2. Layer the ice cream into a freezer-safe container as follows: 1/3 ice cream mixture, followed by a few tablespoons of salted caramel, followed by a few tablespoons of pretzels and toffee bits.

Leftover ice cream will keep in the freezer for up to 2 months (or longer) as long as it is covered in an airtight container.

    Normally, I’m not a huge fan of ice cream with cookies and cookie.dough, but pretzels is something new and intriguing; I bet they don’t get as soft and ‘mushy’ when combined with ice cream and still have a nice bite. I must also admit (an obvious fact) this ice cream looks insanely delicious and wonderful – yay to salted caramel and toffee bits! You now should consider making salted caramel popcorn ice cream. I actually added popcorn once in ice cream, and the result was pleasing.

  11. Oh girl!!! You know I have a solid love of salted caramel and ice cream too!! And, with the upcoming school year I’m pretty sure I’m going to need a giant vat of never ending ice cream myself.

  16. I’m right there with you, Katherine, in the back-to-school stress. Mine’s heading to the college dorm, and I am awake nights just thinking of scenarios. They all. make me want to just dive right into a big bowl of this ice cream and forget the stress! Hang in there, my dear! Fingers crossed that this, too, shall pass.

  17. This is the perfect 5 ingredient summer dessert. The caramel and pretzels give your ice cream the perfect balance of sweet and salty… YUM!
