Butterscotch Ice Cream (No Churn)

You know those hard candy mixes you can find in the bulk bins at grocery stores and candy shops? I’ve always had two favorites from that bunch. The watermelon ones, with the green and red cellophane that actually looks like a watermelon, and the candy has a little bit of gooey goodness inside. Mmmmmm. So good.

My other favorite is the golden colored one – butterscotch. In my experience you’re either a butterscotch lover, or a hater. As for me, I’m definitely a lover.

Look how dang cuuuute that ice cream container is! I saw one in a store a couple months back and almost bought it. I didn’t, and immediately regretted it the next time I was whipping up a batch of ice cream. I went back to find it but it was gone 🙁  Shopping fail.

Thankfully the folks over at Hamptons Lane hooked. me. up. this month with my ice cream sundae box. I love their foodie-lover boxes of fun kitchen goodies. Not only did I get that cute homemade ice cream container, but also the coolest-ever stand alone ice cream scoop, gourmet caramel sauce, and vanilla finishing salt. Ummmmm gonna be honest, had no idea what vanilla finishing salt was til I got the ice cream sundae box from Hamptons Lane this month. Basically it’s a bit of magical dust you sprinkle on top of your ice cream and suddenly it’s transformed into a super duper amazingly delicious frozen treat. Seriously. Magic ice cream dust. I’m in love.

This ice cream is amazing! I love anything with lots of butterscotch 🙂 Pinnned!

    Me too! Butterscotch is sooo underrated I think!!! Thanks Chels! 🙂

One of my favorite flavors! And no churn?! Win!

This looks really good and I’m glad to see no machine is required! I see you say what size container, but do you feel the amount of ice cream made is closer to a quart size than a pint size? I’m just trying to figure out container size to the final outcome. Thank you!

Looks super yummy and I love the play by play action you got going on in the pics. Made my mouth water. Need me some ice cream now!!!!

I am definitely a butterscotch lover! And I need those containers; so stinkin cute!!

Hi Tiffany,

    Hi Cindy- unfortunately I got this container at either Home Goods or Marshalls several years ago! It would be super hard to find now I think! Darn it. Hope you love the recipe!
