  • Put 2.10 oz of sugar into a heavy-bottomed pan or saucepan and place it on medium heat. Stir the sugar occasionally with a wooden spoon until it begins to melt. As soon as this happens, stop stirring and shake the pan/saucepan 2-3 times until the mixture turns amber.

  • Pour 4.20 oz of warm cream into the caramel and gently stir the mixture with a wooden spatula. Simmer the caramel sauce until all the ingredients are well combined. Then remove the pan/saucepan from the heat. Add salt, mix gently and leave the caramel to cool.

  • In another saucepan, combine the remaining heavy cream and 0.88 oz of powdered sugar. Stir the ingredients and put the saucepan on low heat. Bring the mixture to a simmer and immediately remove from heat. Then beat the yolks with the remaining sugar and a little vanilla extract.

  • Next, in several passes (at least 3-4), pour the freshly whipped yolk mixture into the hot cream, stirring the mixture each time. Put the saucepan with the creamy mixture back on heat and, stirring constantly, cook for a few minutes. Don’t bring the mixture to a boil. To avoid boiling, use a cooking thermometer, the temperature of the finished mixture should be 185F. Strain the resulting mixture through a sieve.

  • Combine the mixture with the homemade salted caramel and let it cool. Put the mixture to a container and place it in the freezer until completely solidified. Finally, scoop a generous serving of this homemade salted caramel ice cream into a bowl and top with a drizzle of the warm caramel sauce.


  • You can garnish your ice cream with chopped nuts and grated chocolate.

  • Stir the ice cream from time to time while it hardens to prevent ice crystals from forming.

Bon Appetit!
