Vanilla Ice Cream with Dulce de Leche

I still have some dulce de leche in my fridge. The stuff kept for almost two weeks! I made some ice cream with the last bit I had left. Who can resist the combination of vanilla and milk caramel sauce?

  1. That looks like heaven on this hot summer evening! Nothing can replace a really good vanilla ice cream, and caramel sauce is definitely the best way to top off a scoop. You’re talking my language here!

  2. Not me!!! I’ll take caramel over chocolate anytime (but don’t tell anyone that!)

    And thanks for the tips, so far I’ve been scouring Berlin with no luck, and now I will just order it online. :)

  3. I can easily imagine how delicious that is… and I have a feeling I’ll soon take it out of the imaginary realm and into my mouth!

  4. Oh so yummy… I got really behind on my Google reader and I have been catching up with your blog and now I am really, really hungry. ;)

  5. You’re killing me here. Caramel was the only candy I ate when I was younger (pre-vegan) and seeing this is almost too much to resist. I’m away from my ice cream maker at the moment but I’ll remember this for later. Or maybe I’ll just buy some ice cream and make the sauce. Or make a cheater version of the sauce. We’ll see…
