  • Step 1

    Place butter and brown sugar in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat and cook until butter begins to melt. Add 3 tablespoons heavy cream and whisk until evenly combined. Transfer half of the butterscotch mixture to a small bowl and set aside.

  • Step 2

    Return the saucepan to medium heat. Add the remaining ingredients and whisk until combined. Cook until the base temperature reads 165°F -175°F on an instant-read thermometer, stirring frequently for about 7 to 10 minutes.

  • Step 3

    Add the rest of the ingredients into the remaining butterscotch that’s still in the pot. Stir the ice cream base on medium to low heat, allowing it to thicken slightly but not stick to the bottom of the pot.  Continue cooking until it reaches 165F/74C.  Allow to cool.

  • Step 4

    Remove the base from heat and pour into an empty CREAMi™ Place pint in an ice bath. Once cooled, place storage lid on pint and freeze for 24 hours.
