Butterfinger Ice Cream

Butterfingers are one of those candy bars that I always want to throw into my cart when I am waiting in line at the grocery store. They are chocolatey but not too chocolatey. And what ever that buttery, crispy, inside part that gets stuck up in your teeth is, it is good! 
Nothing like adding your favorite candy bar to your ice cream! But really, add your favorite candy bar to your ice cream! This recipe is so easy and is obviously wonderful with Butterfingers but you can substitute with any candy bar of your choosing! 

1 Cup Milk
1 Cup Heavy Whipping Cream
1 Tbs Vanilla Extract
2 Eggs
1/2 Cup Bakers Sugar
4 or 5 fun size Butterfinger candy bars

1. In a pan, heat up the milk and whipping cream on medium heat until it simmers. Add in Vanilla.
2. In a separate bowl, whip the eggs and sugar together until fluffy.
3. Slowly add the simmering milk mixture to the eggs and continue whisking together.
4. Once all mixed, set in fridge until completely cool (4-6 hours)
5. Unwrap candy bars and place in a plastic Ziploc bag. Use your hand or a mallet to break them up.
6. Pour mixture into ice cream maker, add crumbled candy, and follow manufacturer’s instructions (usually let mix about 20-30 minutes.)
6. Enjoy right away for a soft serve taste or place in freezer proof container and let freeze for 5+ hours to achieve an ice cream consistency.

PS: I am using the KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker attachment for all these recipes and I love it! I recommend it if you already have a KitchenAid and are wanting to get into making ice cream!

  • I'm convinced…I need to try this homemade ice cream!

  • That looks fantastic!

  • Candy bar ice-creams are my favorite! Next up, Rolos? Reese's? πŸ˜€ -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's

  • I'd like bowl after bowl of your delicious looking ice cream! Every recipe makes me hungrier than the next πŸ™‚

  • Always a joy to catch up reading your blog :)! Love all the ice cream!

  • That sounds delicious!!

  • HAH! I know. I'm on a roll!

  • Thanks!

  • oooh! Great ideas. I love Rolos!

  • I'm just slightly obsessed πŸ˜‰

  • You should! When in summer!

  • It was so yummy!

  • It is! Let me know if you try it!

  • A) I LOVE Butterfinger ice cream.
    B) Everything about your blog is getting me so pumped for Will and I's weekend in CO we are planning for our anniversary next month!

  • Oh yay! Where are you going to stay? what are you planning on doing?

  • We haven't nailed it down yet. We are going to be in Denver and Colorado Springs because we are going to watch the Reds (we're big Red's fans) play the Rockies. We are also going to do a half white water rafting trip and hike Pike's Peak. Nothing says marriage celebration like climbing a mountain!

  • Okay so I live like minutes from the base of Pikes Peak! Let me know if you have any questions at all about what to do/ where to stay! or if you want to meet up (but no pressure as you are celebrating your anniversary!)

  • UM YES PLEASE! I have a serious weakness for butterfinger. Definitely the first candy to "disappear" from my kids' halloween bags every year. πŸ™‚ And gorgeous pics, too!

  • That's awesome! I will see how our schedule is shaking out, because meeting up would be pretty awesome!
    I think that we might try out Air B&B rather than stay at a hotel because it is half the price. But I would love suggestions for places we should eat at in the Pike's Peak/CO Springs area and also if you have any good suggestions of where to eat near Coors Field (and maybe a cheap place to park too lol). This is a lot, if you want to message me on Facebook or e-mail me if that works better.

  • yes! Email me πŸ˜‰ ejoyalways@gmail.com I'm finding more and more of a need to do a whole post on this!!!

  • Man, I love all the ice cream! Have I already said that I want to try to make ice cream now? haha!
