Obsessions: Salted Caramel Ice Cream

I was always kind of weary about things that are both – salt and sweet. I’m not a huge fan to be honest so I regarded recipes about salted-caramels with sort of a strange fascination, nothing more.
Then I saw Häagen Dazs offer salted caramel ice cream and I thought “Why not give it a try?”.

And now? Now I’m obsessed. It’s such a gorgeous combination – the slightly salted flavours balancing out the usually too sweet caramel. It’s perfect as a side to dessert – like cookies, brownies and cakes. I’d never have thought I’d be so delighted by that combination.

Further proof of what my parents always taught me: Try to give everything a try – you might be surprised.

  1. I was introduced to sea salt in chocolate and swooned. I cannot imagine adding caramel to that. I might have to try this ice cream flavor over which you swoon.

    • Does the salt-sweet combination work with chocolate too? I’ve seen a few sea salt chocolates but I stayed away from them for the same reason I stayed away from salted caramel. I thought about the chocolate-salt combination yesterday and came to the conclusion “This probably only works because of how sweet caramel usually is.”

      Might have to give salted chocolate a try too after all ;)
      (and you should – if you aren’t opposed to salted chocolate chances are you like salted caramel as well :))

Leave some love (if you want to).
