What-Cha-Ma-Call-It Ice Cream

Whatchamacallit candy bars are one of my favorites even though they are hard to find some days.  I wanted to create an ice cream to taste similar and without all the heaviness adding in egg yolks.  Naturally you need a crunch factor and I picked one of my favorite cereals to nibble on to provide it ~ Cap'n Crunch Peanut Butter Crunch.

What-Cha-Ma-Call-It Ice Cream

In a large bowl combine ~

1/2 cup dark cocoa
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups whipping cream
1 1/2 cups half and half
2 tsp vanilla

Mix together and pour into your ice cream machine. 

When it's thickened, add in ~

2 cups crushed Cap'n Crunch Peanut Butter Crunch
1/2 caramel sauce ~ see below

Put in your freezer until it's firmly set.

Caramel Sauce 

15 caramels
2 tbsp whipping cream

Melt caramels with whipping cream and stir until smooth.  Allow to cool before adding to ice cream.  Gently mix in last so you leave ribbons of caramel in the ice cream.
