I'm not planning to make this ice cream actually but when I check *sigh* Haagen Dazs :D shop , all I saw was DULCE de LECHE flavor with it's lovely dulce de leche swirl - I tell you -what person in her right mind could resist ? Of course I had to drag myself away and kept telling myself it's too expensive for 1 measly scoop ? Yeah yeah tsk tsk So when I arrived home I googled dulce de leche ice cream :D
The color of my homemade dulce de leche didn't stand a chance , the cream and milk mixture drowned out the color :P But of course it's still taste awesome :D I could drink it right then and there but that will defeat the purpose :D
I just used 1 can and that's only about a cup and maybe that's the reason why the ice cream is so light in color :P The churning time was nearly an hour compare to my usual 20-40 minutes . Even after that too long churning , the ice cream mixture was still quiet soft when I tranferred it to a container and I can't ripple my reserved ddl properly tsk tsk . Note to self -it really needs exactly 1 2/3 cup not a measly 1 cup :P :D I didn't have enough pecans so I added walnuts and almonds .
Yield : 1 1/2 quarts or about 6 cups
