Ice Cream Sundays - {heath bar crunch}

The idea for this ice cream started when the Bachs all went out for ice cream recently and I ordered a very yummy concoction of coffee ice cream, chopped up Heath Bars and caramel.  It was my introduction into the delicious world of Heath Bars, and I knew I wanted to try to make a homemade ice cream with Heath Bars in it at home.

At the same time as our ice cream outing, I had Ben & Jerry's Homemade Ice Cream and Dessert Book at home, probably waiting for me on the kitchen counter.  It was kismet!

The recipe I used was Philadelphia-style vanilla from The Perfect Scoop by David Lebovitz (except I omitted the vanilla bean).  I love that recipe, it's so easy to use in many ways - it's a very flexible vanilla!  So, I combined the vanilla ice cream with the quantity of Heath Bars recommended by Ben & Jerry & voila!  Perfection.

I did the photoshoot on a very, very, very hot day.  All five of us pounced on it when I was done shooting - there was nothing left to put back in the freezer.  And, that's the way it goes with an ice cream as delicious at Heath Bar Crunch.



  1. Mmm... at my house the Heath bars would never make it into the ice cream!

    1. It was tough - I knew exactly where they were stashed in the pantry, and I peeked in on them a few times. I'm sort of amazed I didn't cave in!
