This Caramel Apple Ice Cream is loaded with the flavors of apple pie.

Caramel Apple Ice Cream

Welcome to #AppleWeek! This post is sponsored in conjunction with #AppleWeek. I received complimentary product from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of the #AppleWeek recipes. All opinions are mine alone.

This no-churn caramel apple ice cream begins with chopped apples cooked in butter and brown sugar until the butter, brown sugar, and apple juices turn to delicious caramel sauce.
This caramel apple ice cream is loaded with the caramelized apples. I'm pretty sure you could have it for your fruit course, right? 

What is no churn ice cream?

You don't need an ice cream freezer to make no churn ice cream. Instead, you whip cream to form stiff peaks, and then you fold in the rest of the ingredients, including a can of sweetened condensed milk.

Next, you pour the mixture into a container and place it in your freezer. The air in the ice cream comes from the whipped cream. I have several delicious no churn ice cream recipes on this site, including:

I topped This ice cream with caramel sauce from Torani, one of our Apple Week prize sponsors. It is from their new PureMade line of products, which have no artificial colors or flavors. 

For the apples in this ice cream, I used Envy apples, which have become my new favorite apple after trying them during last year's Apple Week

I also added a little twist to the caramel by steeping a bag of hot cider tea from Republic of Tea. The cider spices in the tea added a nice subtle flavor to the caramel. 

Zyliss sent us a cool apple corer and knife, which I used to chop the apples. 

Apple, syrup, tea, and kitchen tools
