Buttered-Popcorn Ice Cream Sundae

Buttered-Popcorn Ice Cream Sundae


Ingredients

Caramel Sauce

  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Buttered-Popcorn Ice Cream

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • 5 tablespoons sugar, divided

Peanut Butter-Chocolate Halvah

  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped high-quality milk chocolate (such as Lindt or Scharffen Berger)
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped bittersweet chocolate (do not exceed 61% cacao)
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped store-bought peanut brittle

Recipe Preparation

Caramel Sauce

  • Combine sugar, corn syrup, cream of tartar, and 1/4 cup water in a medium saucepan. Stir over medium-low heat until sugar dissolves. Increase heat and cook without stirring, occasionally swirling pan and brushing down sides with a wet pastry brush, until dark amber in color, about 7 minutes.

  • Remove from heat; immediately add butter and stir until melted. Slowly add cream (mixture will bubble vigorously). Add vanilla and salt; whisk until smooth. DO AHEAD: Can be made 1 month ahead. Let cool completely. Cover sauce and chill. Rewarm slightly before using.

Buttered-Popcorn Ice Cream

  • Set a strainer over a large bowl; set aside. Place popcorn in another large bowl. Drizzle butter over and sprinkle with 1/2 tsp. salt; toss to coat. Add milk and cream; cover and steep for 10 minutes. Stir in corn syrup and 1 Tbsp. sugar. Working in batches, purée popcorn mixture in a blender until smooth. Transfer to a large saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat.

  • Using an electric mixer, beat yolks, remaining 4 Tbsp. sugar, and remaining 1/2 tsp. salt in a large bowl until thick ribbons form. Gradually whisk hot popcorn mixture into yolk mixture. Return to saucepan and cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, until custard is slightly thickened, your finger leaves a path when drawn across the back of a spoon, and an instant-read thermometer registers 175°, 3–4 minutes. Pour through strainer. Cover and chill overnight.

  • Process in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer's instructions. Transfer to a container, cover, and freeze. DO AHEAD: Can be made 2 days ahead. Keep frozen.

Peanut Butter-Chocolate Halvah

  • Stir both chocolates in a medium metal bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water until melted and smooth. Set aside.

  • Place peanut brittle in a food processor and pulse until finely ground. Add peanut butter and melted chocolate. Pulse until combined. Spread out on a baking sheet. Chill for at least 4 hours. DO AHEAD: Can be made 1 day ahead. Cover; keep chilled.

Assembly

  • Spoon some caramel sauce into tall, decorative glasses or serving bowls. Add 2 scoops buttered-popcorn ice cream. Drizzle more caramel sauce over. Sprinkle some halvah over. Top with a spoonful of whipped cream. Garnish sundae with peanuts and buttered popcorn.

Popcorn Ice Cream

When it came time for Dan, my main squeeze, to celebrate his mother&rsquos birthday, he made it clear that she wasn&rsquot a cake person. Lucky for me, Holli is an ice cream person, and a popcorn lover as well, so I set myself to the task of making a buttered popcorn ice cream for her birthday. This was my first chance to make an impression on her, and I was determined it be a delicious one.

I had made a popcorn sorbet at Poppy restaurant as the base of a caramel corn sundae, and had enough experience to know better than to blend popped corn with hot liquid. The starches in the popcorn form long gummy chains and make it kind of snotty&mdashyuck! I blended popped corn into a chilled ice cream base, but it wasn&rsquot quite right&mdashand this ice cream had to be just right. After a team powwow, Harry Flagger, pastry cook supreme, said it was missing the flavor of the toasted oil. And boy, was he right. I popped the popcorn in clarified butter on the stovetop, then I added the ice cream base to the pot&mdashand it perfectly captured the aroma of popcorn.

Swirlz is a new ice cream bar on Yuyuan Lu, brought to you by Priscilla Young, co-founder of Brut Eatery and Ms P’s Basque burnt cheesecakes, and Jun Wu, executive chef of Brut Eatery.

There are four flavors of ice cream, all made fresh in-house with 100% milk and 100% fruit purée. To start, Swirlz has Meiji fresh milk, dark chocolate, strawberry, and the awesomely funky soy sauce caramel (it’s like salted caramel but with that familiar soy sauce flavor).

Soy Sauce Caramel

Ice creams are available as a cone or in a cup, ¥28 for one flavor or ¥30 for two flavors.

Strawberry (Fruit flavors will rotate!)

Ice creams are also available in sundae form, fully loaded with toppings like buttered popcorn, crispy Serrano ham and chocolate wafers. My favorite is the Fig & Ham (because, obviously, it has that salty Serrano on top).

Fig & Ham (¥44) – Meiji fresh milk ice cream, crispy Serrano ham, fresh fig, fresh thyme, caramelized fig sauce. Ferrero Flare (¥42) – Dark chocolate ice cream, hazelnut, chocolate wafer, shaved chocolate, hazelnut chocolate sauce. Movie Night (¥36) – Fresh milk ice cream, buttered popcorn, Oreo crumble, peanuts, caramel sauce.

There are even some with a touch of booze, like this Piña Colada sundae.

Piña Colada (coming soon) – Fresh milk ice cream, Diplomatico, pineapple, coconut.

The plan is to rotate in some funky flavors on a monthly basis. Flavors churning soon include black sesame, lemon cheesecake, pandan coconut, and milk tea.

Swirlz also has coffee (Americano, ¥22 Affogato, ¥34) and some fizz drinks.

Mango Passion Fruit Fizz (¥32)

Venue is also dog-friendly!

7 Too Much: Carolina Reaper Ice Cream

Imagine the idea of eating ghost peppers, and add that to ice cream. That is not one thought that many people would entertain. Perhaps the bravest of all. Imagine also an ice cream flavor that is even spicier than that. Perhaps one that has the flavor of Carolina Reapers, which are the hottest chili peppers in the world.

The Aldwych Café and Ice Cream Parlor in Glasgow, Scotland features the Carolina Reapers ice cream flavor. The name for it is Respiro Del Diavolo which means the breath of the devil in Spanish. This ice cream is so hot that anyone who wants to try it out must sign a waiver to do so first.


Buttered-Popcorn Ice Cream Sundae - Recipes

Do you ever have one of those days that just feels difficult? The kind of day that, by the end of it, leaves you feeling completely deflated and exhausted? It doesn't happen too often, but when it does, it's quite the brick wall that smacks me in the face. I think part of the process of moving from Japan to Colorado must be learning to bottle up my emotions associated with missing/letting go of our former home while beginning to love our new one. Does that make sense? Then, it just all comes out at once and I begin to realize how much I miss the familiar streets, sounds, and routines of Tokyo. It's funny that a place that started out being so strange and different became so normal to me.

None of my problems are really that bad. But I think we all have times when the problems we do have become just a little too much. And we need a good cry. Am I right?

After an emotionally draining day, I seem to want something decadent and comforting to enjoy while I pick up the pieces of myself that have been scattered willy nilly on the floor. Ice cream usually does the trick. And it is especially appropriate with all the crazy heat we have been having here in Denver this week. Nearly 100 degrees, lots of sun, zero rain, and gusty wind. Not a great combination for our drought-stricken part of the country.

OK- enough of all that serious stuff. Let's talk about these sundaes.

First, we have a salted caramel macchiato sundae made with coffee ice cream, salted caramel and fresh whipped cream. Holy Hannah, that's delicious.

Then, there is a classic sundae made boozy, with chocolate syrup, whipped cream, a cute little cherry on top and a splash of Cointreau. Can't go wrong with a combination that has stood the test of time, can you? And a little bit of boozy flavor makes it just right for adults. I also added some toasted pine nuts in place of peanuts. Yum.

And now, the best for last is this sundae made with chocolate ice cream, covered in both chocolate sauce and caramel, then sprinkled with buttery, salty popcorn and chopped pecans. I'm playing favorites and this is it.

I'm not really endorsing eating your sorrows away (or am I?), but I am saying that ice cream sundaes can have a fun, grown up twist that will brighten any day.

You don't really need a recipe for these, but I'll give them to you anyway. While we're at it, why don't you give me your favorite ideas for ice cream sundaes in the comments below! It's going to be hot here all week, so I'll need some more inspiration!


Bliss in a bowl: 17 ideas for your next ice cream sundae

Perhaps you don’t need an excuse to indulge in an ice cream sundae. To that we say, good on you. But just in case you do, rejoice: November 11 is National Sundae Day. It's a day to feel good about piling toppings on your favorite scoops, whether it’s the traditional fudge sauce with nuts, whipped cream and a cherry on top or something a little more creative, like the ideas below. Go on — enjoy. It’s practically your patriotic duty. (For each of these recipes, whipped cream is a given.)

1. Applesauce + cinnamon + vanilla ice cream: Love apple pie a la mode? This is it, sans crust. Warm a little applesauce with a sprinkling of cinnamon, to taste, then pour it atop a couple scoops of vanilla ice cream. Amp it up even more with some cinnamon ice cream or, even better, a dulce de leche or salted-caramel scoop.

2. Strawberry slices + blueberry preserves + vanilla ice cream: We were serious when we said it’s your patriotic duty to enjoy a sundae. So do it American-style: Heat a little blueberry preserves so they become slightly liquid. Pour over two scoops of vanilla ice cream and top with fresh sliced strawberries. Yahoo red, white and blue!

3. Marshmallow fluff + graham crackers + rocky road ice cream: It’s s’mores in a cup! Top two scoops of rocky road ice cream (or plain chocolate if you’re a purist) with a dollop of marshmallow fluff and garnish with a couple graham cracker sections — or crumble them on top. Either way, we predict you’ll want s’more.

4. Strawberry slices + vanilla ice cream + aged balsamic: Sweet-tart flavors go gourmet. Simply top a couple scoops of vanilla ice cream with fresh sliced strawberries and drizzle with a mellow aged balsamic vinegar for a complex, sophisticated sundae.

5. Lemon curd + pistachio ice cream + salted pistachios: Nuts for nuts? Place a dollop of lemon curd atop two scoops of pistachio ice cream, dress with whipped cream and sprinkle with chopped salted pistachios.

6. Peanut butter syrup + chocolate ice cream + salted peanuts: Think chocolate and peanut butter are two great tastes that taste great together? Then take a cue from the famous peanut butter cup and top chocolate ice cream with peanut butter syrup (here's an easy recipe for homemade peanut butter syrup) and chopped salted peanuts.

7. Toasted coconut + coconut ice cream + cookie crumbles: Think coconut cream pie when you’re putting this sundae together: Top coconut ice cream with whipped cream (of course) and toasted coconut. Crumble your choice of cookie on top, from a sugar cookie to a snickerdoodle or even a graham cracker.

8. Banana slices + sweet cream ice cream + Nilla wafers: Speaking of cream pies, riff on banana cream pie, sundae-style by topping sweet cream ice cream (or a scoop of banana ice cream if you’re really bananas for the flavor) with banana slices and crumbled Nilla wafers. Bonus: Top the banana slices with a sprinkling of brown sugar and a pat of butter and broil for two to three minutes to get a deep, caramelized flavor.

9. Caramel syrup + vanilla ice cream + sea salt: Love the new salted-caramel craze? Construct your own sundae in homage by sprinkling some high-quality flaked sea salt over caramel-topped vanilla ice cream.

10. Dulce de leche + chocolate ice cream + cinnamon + cinnamon-sugar tortilla strips: Take your sundae a south of the border with this deconstructed Mexican chocolate sundae. Top scoops of chocolate ice cream (or one chocolate and one cinnamon scoop) with dulce de leche (also sold as cajeta) and sprinkle with cinnamon. Top with strips of cinnamon-sugared tortillas (the Pioneer Woman has a great cinnamon crisps recipe).

11. Breakfast cereal + vanilla ice cream + chocolate sauce: Cuckoo for breakfast cereal? Top your favorite scoops with the cereal of your choice, everything from Cocoa Krispies or Cocoa Puffs if you’re a chocolate fiend to Kix, Corn Flakes and even Cheerios if you prefer a to give your sundae a toasty taste. (New Englanders know that Grape-Nuts are a great match for vanilla.)

12. Maple syrup + bacon + vanilla ice cream: Seriously folks, what kind of food list would be complete without bacon? Sate all your sweet-salty cravings by crumbling crispy bacon atop vanilla ice cream and drizzling with maple syrup.

13. Popcorn + vanilla ice cream + chocolate sauce: Another take on sweet and salty, cinema style. Instead of the traditional chopped nuts, sprinkle salted buttered popcorn on top. More of a carnival type person? Sub Cracker Jack or kettle corn for the popcorn.

14. Pretzels + potato chips + butterscotch sauce + vanilla ice cream: Momofuku Milk Bar has their Compost Cookie. Why can’t you make a sundae in the same style? Top vanilla ice cream with butterscotch sauce, and crumble pretzels and potato chips atop. Oh yeah.

15. Strawberry preserves + strawberry ice cream + biscuits: It’s strawberry shortcake in a bowl. Heat a small amount of strawberry preserves to make them liquid, then pour atop strawberry ice cream and crumble a little biscuit on top.

16. Cherry preserves + vanilla ice cream + brownie crumbles + chocolate sauce + brandied cherry: This take on black forest cake makes a great bowl: Heat cherry preserves so they become liquid and pour atop vanilla ice cream. Crumble brownie or chocolate cake pieces on top and finish with a brandied cherry — or a few.

17. Apple or pumpkin butter + pumpkin pie spice + toasted walnuts + vanilla ice cream: Call it the harvest special. Dollop apple or pumpkin butter atop two scoops of vanilla ice cream and sprinkle with a little pumpkin pie spice (a mixture of cinnamon, nutmeg, ground ginger and allspice). Top with toasted walnuts. So cozy.

Frugii’s Bacon Ice Cream

Described as the ‘ice cream alchemist’, Frugii’s John Marshall is the closest thing Canberra has to Zumbo. Whipping up flavours like Tim Tam, salted butter caramel, candied orange, cardamom, musk stick, popcorn, black licorice and sambuca … plus the more ‘out there’ blue cheese, cloves, and bacon, he pushes the boundaries of the traditional ice cream experience.

“I was of course inspired by Heston Blumenthal’s TV Series, and book where he did his now infamous ‘Bacon and Egg’ Ice Cream,” explains John. “However, not one for ice cream tasting ‘eggy’ I decided to make my own version where it’s more of a balance between sweet and savoury flavours.”

Here’s how you can create it at home.

Bacon Ice Cream Base

Bacon Fat (rendered) to taste!

Instructions

Heat milk to 30c add half the sugar, stir frequently.

Whisk the egg yolks, and remaining sugar to a light colour

At 50c, add half the milk to the Egg Yolks stirring quickly (this step is called tempering), then return egg and milk mix to remaining half of milk in saucepan – continue stirring.

At 84c, custard through sieve into a container, add hot rendered bacon fat, cover surface with gladwrap, and chill overnight.

Churn using equipment instructions.
