Create irresistible Miso Salted Caramel Ice Cream Sandwiches for Sunday Supper.
BTW The theme for this week is Easy Football Food for Game Day.
(Little did I know how easy…)

Despite the recipe promising an easy caramel sauce, the caramel for my ice cream never turned golden. It probably has something to do with the noticed-at-the-last-minute expired corn syrup...To the rescue: Store bought caramel sauce in the refrigerator. (Ahhh, the rewards of having a sweet tooth.)

Onto the lovely vanilla ice cream recipe…My plan was to drizzle the caramel (with 2 teaspoons of miso) into the vanilla ice cream as it churned. (Japanese miso is fundamentally fermented soybeans, salt and a few other ingredients.) The wispy clouds of cream underneath my handheld mixer whispered of wonders to come. Pouring my heavenly vanilla mixture into the ice cream maker, I realized that my machine was rebelling. The ice cream mixture was leaking out of the freezer bucket. My double-checking and reconfirming that all parts were securely in place was of no avail. My machine croaked on me.

But, Ninjas never give up…So after a day of teaching English and interviewing a chef in Japanese for Motto LA Magazine article, I slipped into a supermarket and purchased vanilla ice cream.

The Happy and Delicious Conclusion to the Saga of Miso Salted Caramel Ice Cream Sandwiches? See the recipe!

Luscious vanilla ice cream swirled with caramel sauce is spiked by salty miso. The snap of the ginger cookie crunch adds a sublime contrast to the soft ice cream.

If you are planning to serve Miso Salted Caramel Ice Cream Sandwiches for a party, plan on freezing the delectable dessert before serving. In other words, make the ice cream sandwiches, and then freeze. 

  • 3 cups vanilla ice cream
  • 2 T caramel sauce
  • 2 tsps miso
  • Ginger snap cookies

Mix the caramel sauce and miso into the ice cream.
Sandwich the divine ice cream between ginger snaps or your favorite cookies.
