Salty-sweet is the way we describe this decadent Butterscotch-Sea Salt Shake.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 cups vanilla ice cream
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • Coarse sea salt

How to Make It

  1. Heat butter and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat; stir until melted. Stir in cream, and bring mixture just to a boil; remove from heat, and stir in vanilla extract. Let cool completely; refrigerate until cold and thickened.

  2. Combine ice cream, milk, and 3/4 cup caramel mixture in a blender; process until smooth. Pour half of remaining caramel mixture into glasses, coating sides. Top with ice-cream mixture; drizzle evenly with remaining caramel mixture. Sprinkle with a pinch of sea salt.
