Our decadent homemade nutty ice cream captures the flavor of dark beer for a grownup taste.
cups whipping cream
cup cold dark beer
cup packed brown sugar
cup beer nuts
In chilled large bowl, stir whipping cream, beer, brown sugar and vanilla until sugar is dissolved.
Pour mixture into 1-quart ice-cream freezer. Freeze according to manufacturer’s directions, 20 to 25 minutes. At this point, the ice cream will be soft.
Fold nuts into ice cream mixture. Transfer to 1 1/2-quart freezer container with lid; cover. Freeze at least 4 hours.
Beer nuts (which don’t contain any beer) have a sweet-and-salty glaze that makes them go well with a cold beer. If you don’t care for nuts in ice cream, you can leave them out.
Dark beer provides more flavor than a lighter colored beer, but if dark beer tastes too bitter to you, use your favorite brand of beer.
To make Chocolate-Ripple Beer Ice Cream, fold 1/2 cup hot fudge topping into ice cream mixture at the same time as the beer nuts.
