SMS: Brown Sugar Vanilla Ice Cream with Butterscotch Sauce

Sweet Melissa Sundays is definately sweet this week! The recipe choice was Brown Sugar Vanilla Ice Cream with a choice of either Hot Fudge Sauce or Butterscotch Sauce. I love ice cream and you can't really ruin a vanilla ice cream.


I enjoyed this recipe because it calls for brown sugar instead of white. The recipe also uses vanilla extract and vanilla bean for double the vanilla flavor. It was a unique vanilla ice cream which we really enjoyed!

The only change I made to the ice cream recipe was substituting French Vanilla powdered creamer for the powdered skim milk. The commissary only carries the HUGE boxes of powdered milk and it just wasn't practical to buy that for 1/4 cup. Plus, we are moving in 2 1/2 months and can't take food, so it would really go to waste. The creamer worked wonderfully and the ice cream was incredibly creamy. Mmmmm!


As for the butterscotch, it was great! Really easy to make and an excellent topping for the ice cream!

Thanks to Karen of Karen's Cookies, Cakes, and More for hosting this week. The recipe can be found at her blog.

Yum I think the brown sugar would be a nice break from white sugar. Im sad my ice cream maker broke. Your ice cream looks so good and refreshing!

It looks fantastic with the butterscotch and it sounds like the creamer was a great solution (extra vanilla is not a bad thing)!
