Caramel Ice Cream Sundaes

Caramel Ice Cream SundaesNothing says comfort like a bowl of vanilla and dulce de leche ice creams topped with warm, vanilla-scented caramel sauce. If you can't find nut brittle, substitute toasted mixed nuts.


* 1 cup(s) sugar
* 1/4 cup(s) water
* 1/4 cup(s) heavy cream
* 4 tablespoon(s) unsalted butter, cut up
* 1 teaspoon(s) vanilla extract
* 1 pinch(s) salt
* 1 pint(s) dulce de leche ice cream
* 1 pint(s) vanilla ice cream
* Nut brittle.


1. In medium saucepan, stir sugar and water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium and cook, swirling pan occasionally, until syrup turns amber. Remove pan from heat and carefully add heavy cream (mixture will sputter); stir to combine. Return to heat and bring to a simmer, stirring to dissolve any hard bits of caramel. Remove pan from heat and let cool 5 minutes. Whisk in butter, vanilla, and salt. Let sauce cool.

2. Scoop ice creams into sundae dishes. Spoon caramel sauce over ice cream and garnish with nut brittle.
