Taffy Apple Ice Cream


  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 3 medium ripe sweet apples, chopped
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar, divided
  • 1 tbsp. molasses or maple syrup
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3 cups milk, divided (heavy cream or half-and-half for richer flavor)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 3 egg yolks, beaten


  1. Heat butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add apples and sauté 6–8 minutes or until crisp-tender. Reduce heat to medium-low and stir in 1/2 cup brown sugar, molasses, cinnamon and vanilla. Sauté 3–4 minutes or until mixture has thickened slightly. Set aside.
  2. In a large saucepan, combine 1 1/2 cups milk, granulated sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, salt and egg yolks. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, 9–10 minutes or until just bubbling (do not boil). Stir in remaining milk; let cool.
  3. Pour milk mixture into a large freezer bag and press all of the air out. Seal and place flat in the freezer. Freeze completely, 6–8 hours.
  4. Crumble the frozen mixture into a blender (or food processor) and mix until smooth. With blender still running, mix in apple mixture.
  5. Transfer to a storage container and return to freezer. Freeze at least 4 hours before serving.
