Butterscotch Hard Shell can be done easily at home. DIY these delicious ice cream topping yourself with just two ingredients. Fun, tasty, and kid-friendly. This post is sponsored by Turkey Hill and created in partnership with our friends at Honest Cooking. As always, all thoughts and opinions are completely our own.
Don’t mind us. We’re just over here, eating all the ice cream and loving on summer down to the very last lick. Pregnancy / new baby plus the heat of the summer has meant that I need no excuse at all to have a bowl or cone or spoonful right out of the carton.
Did a load of laundry…scoop of Vanilla!
Put the baby down for a nap…how ‘bout some Mint Chocolate Chip.
Clean up the breakfast dishes…bring on the Mocha Swirl.
It helps that what we’ve currently got stocked in our freezer is Turkey Hill’s All Natural Ice Cream. Made with super simple ingredients that all actually belong in ice cream like milk, cream, and sugar (no artificial colors, no artificial flavoring, and no stabilizers here). Plus all the delicious things that create a bunch of amazing flavors.
Did I mention the Salted Caramel?
Butterscotch Hard Shell
If you’re looking for something super fun and suuuuper simple to top your ice cream, homemade hard shell is where it’s at. It only takes two ingredients to make this topping that is liquid when warm and yet forms a crunchy shell when cold. I remember thinking that this stuff was truly magic when I was a kid. And now that I’m an adult, I know that the real magic is how easy it is to make this at home.
It’s just two ingredients that are melted and combined – coconut oil and butterscotch chips. The coconut oil is what makes it pourable when warm and hard when cool. The chips give it all the flavor.
