Why didn't I think of buying this when I was there? You can technically make your own, but its not as exciting as getting a sweet treat from South America!
Whisking the milk, heavy cream and dulce de leche...
I've gotten to be a pro at this ice cream making stuff!
Dulce De Leche Ice Cream, borrowed from Smitten Kitchen:
- 2 cups whole milk
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 2/3 cups dulce de leche (so, basically that entire jar plus some)
- 1/8 tsp. vanilla extract
Bring the milk and cream to a boil in a heavy saucepan over medium heat. Remove from heat and whisk in the dulce de leche until it is dissolved. Whisk in the vanilla and transfer to a metal bowl.
Quick chill by putting the bowl in a larger bowl with water and ice cubes, stirring occasionally until cold (probably 20 minutes-ish). Freeze in your ice cream maker. You might want to let it sit for an hour in the freezer.
