This Harry Potter No-Churn Butterbeer Ice Cream is a creamy mixture of caramel and butterscotch with an optional bit of schnapps for adults! Its the creamiest ice cream I’ve ever had without the necessity of an ice cream maker.
I just soaked up every Harry Potter book upon its release during my college years. Its still by far one of my favorite book series (and I’ve read a few of them). I’m a sucker for dystopian novels that tend to make an appearance at the movie theater soon after reading. I just love all the imaginative creations Rowling gave us particularly, Butterbeer! The next question is, where can I get me some of that?
I happened to notice on social media a few weeks ago that Butterbeer Ice Cream is actually available at certain stores. I was immediately intrigued, but thought why not make it? I just love any excuse to put alcohol in my desserts after all. Butterscotch Schnapps is staple in my liquor cabinet (makes an excellent addition to a caramel latte) and was discovered to go great in ice cream. As a bonus, alcohol also acts as a softener when making frozen confections. It gives you that creamy, dreamy texture that makes soft serve ice cream so much better.
I really don’t have time for a lot of fuss when making my desserts and wanted to make this recipe as easy as possible. A bit of instant butterscotch pudding, caramel sauce and Butterscotch Schnapps get added to plenty of whipped cream and sweetened condensed milk for this no-fuss recipe you will definitely want to make again and again.
