  10. 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!!

  11. 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.

  12. These look amazing! How many does this recipe make? Where can I buy the gold sprinkles? and how much of them do I need? Thanks!

  13. Thank goodness Pinterest led me here! These are amazing, hope you don’t mind if I stick around and drool for a while.

  14. 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!

  15. 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
