Peanut Brittle Ice Cream

This summer it´s all about the ICE CREAM.. I wanted to stay away from the oh so irritating chant "I scream, you scream, we all scream for Ice Cream.." but I can´t.. it´s true.. we ALL do scream for ICE CREAM!! :-) :-)

Este verano todo es sobre el helado .. Quería alejarme del dicho "Yo grito, tú gritas, todos gritamos por un helado ..", pero no puedo .. es cierto .. TODOS gritamos por un helado!! :-) :-)

I´m a huge fan of peanut brittle and thought it would taste delicious in ice cream.. I mean what could be better than homemade peanut brittle swirled into homemade (might I add.. no churn) Ice Cream..?? Right.. right??

Soy una gran fan de los "peanut brittle" y pensé que debería tener un sabor delicioso en los helados .. Quiero decir, ¿qué podría ser mejor que unos "peanut brittle" mezclados en helado casero ..? Verdad??

This Ice Cream is so easy to make, you´ll want to make over and over again :-)

Este Helado es muy fácil de hacer, querrás hacerlo una y otra vez :-)

Peanut Brittle

(makes approximately 1 litre)

for the Ice Cream:

  • 400ml cold whipping cream
  • 1 tin cold sweetened condensed milk (370/390g)

for the Peanut Brittle:

  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup water
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla essence
  • ¾ cup salted peanuts


for the Peanut Brittle:
Prepare a baking tray with a sheet of wax paper. Heat the sugar and water on medium high heat until the mixture turns into a golden colour, put the heat off and immediately add the vanilla and peanuts. Work fast. Scoop the mixture onto the prepared wax paper and flatten with the back of your wooden spoon. Allow to cool/harden at room temperature. When cooled, put into a zip-lock bag and chop into pieces with your wooden rolling pin.

for the Ice Cream:
Whip your cold cream until it forms stiff peaks, fold the tin of cooled condensed milk to the whipped cream by using a spatula. Add the chopped pieces of peanut brittle, pour into a container and freeze for a minimum of 6 hours. You don´t need to whisk the mixture during the freezing process because condensed milk is a magic ingredient when making no-churn ice cream.. the end result will be creamy, smooth and not at all icy :-)

ENJOY! Be warned this is super delish.. you might go back for seconds ;-) ;-)

Hope you are all having a great summer so far.. we have successfully completed week 1, spent a lovely day on the beach on Thursday.. looking forward to many more beach days in the 11 more weeks of school holidays to come! Yay! :-) :-)

Espero que todos estéis  pasando un buen verano hasta ahora .. que hemos completado con éxito la semana 1, pasamos un día precioso en la playa el jueves .. con ganas de muchos más días de playa en las próximas 11 semanas de vacaciones escolares por venir! Hurra! :-) :-)

Happy ice cream eating!!!
