Salted Caramel Ice Cream Cake Shots recipe

Health nuts everywhere will roll over in their graves about this one. Lucky for you, I don’t qualify for such categories. Instead, I have 4 words for you: cupcakes, ice cream, caramel, salt*. Sweet & salty, need I say more?

*I thought five words might be a bit excessive but I would like to note striped straws, too. I’m currently obsessed. I blame BHLDN, they did this to me.

Recipe for Salted Caramel Ice Cream Cake Shots (by yours truly)

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoons caramel sauce, plus a little extra for the glasses
  • 4 scoops vanilla ice cream
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • Pinch of sea salt, plus a little extra for the garnish
  • 1 vanilla cupcake
Garnishes
  • Gold sprinkles
  • Whip cream
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • Caramel sauce
  • Shot glasses

Blend ingredients together. Coat the rims of the glasses with caramel, and then dip them in gold sprinkles. Add a dab of caramel to each glass, and then fill with the shake just before serving. Top with whip cream and a pinch of sea salt!

    Where’s the love button?

    All of your desserts are *fabulous*, and how innovative to add a dash of sea salt to give this scrumptious dessert a sweet/salty taste.

    My question is, “How many of these did you eat yourself before posting”? haha

    When I saw the Blue Bell ice cream I thought of when I first had it in Texas. I am going to try this recipe. It looks so good!

    Do you just use a store bought vanilla cupcake minus the frosting?

    • Ashley said:

      Sure! What the heck, just leave the icing on it, it’s probably delicious!

    The meaning of the phrase “ice cream” varies from one country to another. Phrases such as “frozen custard”, “frozen yogurt”, “sorbet”, “gelato” and others are used to distinguish different varieties and styles. In some countries, such as the United States, the phrase “ice cream” applies only to a specific variety, and most governments regulate the commercial use of the various terms according to the relative quantities of the main ingredients.

    I do have one question. From the top of the Ingredients list – you put the caramel in the bottom of shot glass – but then do you blend together ice cream, milk, sea salt AND cupcake? What do to with cupcake is the question. Thanks!!

    • Ashley said:

      Hi Sandi! Yes, you do blend the cupcake :) Trust me, it’s delicious!

    Some “Birthday Cake” vodka would make these extra special.

    When adding a pinch of sea salt, do you put it on top of the whipped cream?

    How many does this recipe yield and what size shot glasses did you use?
