Sea Salt Caramel Ice Cream Sandwiches
Everyone who has ever been to Weight Watchers or tried to drop a couple lbs knows this fact: do not keep “trigger foods” around your house. You know, the ones that, once you have a bite, you’ll eat the whole bag/box/carton/12 pack.
So, this ice cream and I have been flirting at Publix for a few weeks now.
It looks like it’s from heaven, right? In case you can’t read the description, let me do that for you. Sea salt caramel, mini caramel cups and caramel ice cream. That’s caramel x 3. Oh mamma.
And here’s the kicker, the Publix ice creams with the perky, illustrated containers are all limited edition. This flavor could disappear from the store at any moment, without warning. So, I did it. I gave in. Put myself in harm’s way, completely on purpose.
I get home from Publix. I pull out some pretzel chips for a mid-afternoon snack. And while I’m sitting there wishing I had some pimento cheese, it dawns on me.
SEA SALT CARAMEL PRETZEL CHIP ICE CREAM SANDWICHES.
That noise you hear? Angels singing.
It took me about 5 seconds to put everything together.
Holy. Moly. Buttery, salty, sweet, crispy. Amazing.
I made about a dozen of these and they lasted for 2 whole nights! And there’s still a half a carton of ice cream left. THAT is willpower, my friends.*
If you’re a salty/sweet person like I am, you gotta give it a whirl.
You will thank me, even if your jeans won’t.
*This is a lie. There is no ice cream left.
UPDATE: For those of you without Publix (I’m sorry), I think Ben & Jerry’s Dulce Delish ice cream would be a good substitute.
