Summertime calls for good old ice cream, but the pints upon pints of plain vanilla in our freezer were in dire need of a face lift. While making toffee I realized that was just the thing to mix into vanilla ice cream! This ice cream is sweet, but not too sweet, crunchy but not too crunchy. A little spoon of heaven
I Scream Java Crunch
1/2 cup toffee (homemade recipe here)
1 quart ice cream (vanilla, chocolate or coffee- vanilla's preferable)
1 tbsp. coffee granules
1 tbsp. cocoa powder
Let ice cream melt a bit (10-15 min), in food processor grind 1/2 cup toffee into tiny pieces. Place in small bowl. Grind the other 1/2 cup of toffee finely, until same texture as flour. Add to bowl with the first 1/2 cup of toffee. Add in coffee granules and cocoa powder, mix until all powders are combined. Spoon the ice cream into a large bowl and create hole in middle. Pour toffee/coffee/cocoa mixture into the hole in the ice cream. Using wooden spoon or ice cream scoop mix well. Put new mixture back into original ice cream carton and freeze.
