Indulge in the smooth and creamy delight of Butterscotch Ice Cream, with its rich caramelized flavors and irresistible sweetness.

In a saucepan over medium heat, add your butter and brown sugar. Cook until the butter has melted and the sugar is dissolved and starting to bubble up, about 3-4 minutes.

Whisk in ½ cup of your heavy cream and cook another 1-2 minutes until smooth. Remove your butterscotch from heat and set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together your egg yolks and sugar for about 2-3 minutes, until smooth and pale yellow in color.

Whisk in your milk to a saucepan over medium heat. Bring the milk to a simmer and then remove from the heat. Do not boil.

Whisking constantly, slowly add a ½ cup of your hot milk to the yolk and sugar mixture, whisk until combined.

Add the tempered egg yolk mixture back into the saucepan with your remaining hot milk. Mix in your salt.

Whisking constantly, heat on low until the the mixture has thickened enough to coat the back of a spoon. This should take a few minutes.

Add your remaining heavy cream and vanilla extract to your mix, stir to combine.

Pour mixture in to a bowl, and whisk in your butterscotch. Cover your bowl with plastic wrap, making sure to have the plastic wrap touching the surface of the ice cream base so it does not get a skin. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours.

When ready, churn your ice cream mixture in the bowl of your ice cream machine according to your manufacturer’s instructions.

Spoon your ice cream into a shallow container or a loaf pan. Press plastic wrap the surface of the ice cream. Freeze for at least 4 hours, or until solid.
