No-Cook Turtle Ice Cream

Yield Makes 1 1/2 quarts

Ingredients

  • 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 (5-ounce) can evaporated milk
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1/4 cup caramel sauce
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate morsels
  • 1 teaspoon shortening
  • 3/4 toasted chopped pecans

How to Make It

  1. Whisk first 5 ingredients in a 2-quart pitcher or large bowl until blended. Cover and chill 30 minutes.

  2. Pour milk mixture into freezer container of a 1-quart electric ice-cream maker, and freeze according to manufacturer's instructions. (Instructions and times will vary.)

  3. Stir caramel sauce into prepared ice cream. Remove container with ice cream from ice-cream maker, and place in freezer 15 minutes. Microwave semisweet chocolate morsels and shortening in a microwave-safe glass bowl at HIGH 1 minute. Stir until smooth. Place toasted chopped pecans on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Drizzle pecans with melted chocolate. Freeze 5 minutes. Break into bite-size pieces. Stir chocolate-and-pecan pieces into ice cream. Transfer to an airtight container; freeze until firm, about 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
