Being honest about one’s skill set is very important. When it comes to cooking and curating recipes, I am a novice at best. One thing I have managed to master is no-churn Ice cream. Possibly because it only consists of two ingredients: condensed milk and heavy whipping cream. No-churn ice cream doesn’t require an ice cream maker, plus it’s super easy and fun to make!

I recently received an influencer box from the French Food & Beverage Federation that contained some really interesting European fall and summer favorites.

Candy corn is one of those seasonal items that you either love or hate. I love it, and am not ashamed to share that I eat candy corn year round. Did y’all even know candy corn was sold year round? The Valentine’s Day edition is the best, because it is cinnamon flavored, but I also have an affinity for the Christmas edition because it’s purty!
Due to no-churn ice cream’s simple ingredients, you can really go crazy by adding all kinds of fun mix-in’s. For this no-churn caramel candy corn recipe I added brownie bits in addition to the CaramBar caramel sauce and candy corn.

Viola.. you have the most delicious no-churn ice cream!
