Dulce de Leche Ice Cream

In my book, this is the richest, tastiest ice cream I have ever had. Every spoonful makes my eyes roll to the back of my head. My ice cream making adventures would be for naught had I not accidentally found this incredible delight. Kaitlin, my ice cream freak, likes the chocolate better, but what does she know?


Have you seen this in the grocery store? If so, buy it; buy lots of it! Don't participate in the recession, participate in instant gratification; you'll thank me for it later.
This recipe is VERY loosely adapted from my Kitchen Aid book.
1-3/4 cup whipping cream
1-3/4 cup 1% milk
1 can condensed milk (14 oz.)
1/2 can La Lachera Dulce de Leche (7 oz.)
2 (1 oz. each ) small boxes of instant Cheesecake pudding mix with Nutra Sweet
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup coarsely chopped pecans
Place all of the ingredients except the pecans in a mixing bowl and whisk until thoroughly combined and the pudding and Dulce de Leche is dissolved. Cover and chill in the fridge for about 6 hours.
Hook up the freeze bowl for the mixer and turn on to "Stir". Pour mixer into the bowl. Ok, you will really be spooning this mixture into the freeze bowl because it will be the consistency of pudding. Continue on stir for about 15 minutes. Turn off mixer, remove dasher and fold in chopped pecans. Place mixture in air tight containers and freeze for at least two hours.



You will not be able to finish this, it is so rich. Feed this to your sweetie and he or she will pledge their undying love to you.
Happy Valentine's Day!!!
