TWD: Burnt Sugar Icecream ....not really

Well....I must say I gave this one a try. Maybe too much of a try. I am sorry to say I am done trying to make this Dorie treat. It sounds incredibly delicious. I was curious to see how it turned out. However for the life of me I could not get the caramel mixture to turn to that nice amber color Dorie speaks of. Very frustrating. I have made homemade caramels before and been successful, but not this time I guess. Sometimes making my TWD the day of doesn't work out so well. I can't take my time as much as I would like. After three batches of what ended up as dry white chunks instead of amber thick liquid I decided my kitchen was a mess my kids have been plopped down in front of the TV for too long while my attempts failed. I think this ice cream session is over and maybe will resume another time. Off to play with my kids or weed in the yard. I hope the other and surely better TWD bakers did much better than me.

For pictures of the real deal which I am sure was spectacular you can visit Becky at Project Domestication.

Oh April! What a bummer and how frustrating! Maybe we should try it together sometime. I just saw a recipe for Caramel Apple Bars that they suggested pairing with th ice cream. I thought it sounded delish!
