No, these pretzels didn’t make me thirsty. These pretzels made me very happy! They were brought to me by a friend that lives in the US, she carried the bag of chocolate dipped pretzels during her 6 week vacation so she could give them to me just on the last day before she went back to the US. How cool was that? I think I would have eaten them! But I’m really glad she didn’t!
Of course I’ve eaten most of them straight from the bag, but I’ve also used some to do an ice cream. And just for fun I decided I would add a swirl of dulce de leche to said ice cream. Just for fun, you know?! It tasted just like a candy bar! I could have named it “Chocolate covered pretzels with dulce de leche swirl ice crem”, but that’s a huge name, so went with “Candy bar ice cream”!
CANDY BAR ICE CREAM
- 200 ml cream
- 200 ml milk
- 50 gr (1.8 oz) glucose
- 80 gr (2.8 oz) sugar
- 80 gr (2.8 oz) egg yolks
- 1/4 cup dulce de leche
- 1 cup chocolate covered pretzels, cut into chunks (or crushed)
In fact this wasn’t the only ice cream I did recently, I have 2 more to show you, so I guess September will be kind of “ice cream month” around here! Come back with your spoons pointed at the screen!
