Butter Brickle Ice Cream

When I came across these pretzel cones I only wished I had thought of it myself!! It is a match made in heaven with this butter brickle ice cream! Sweet & salty always win in my book! Of course this ice cream can be thoroughly enjoyed in any cone or bowl. It is magnificent!! (I found these most fantasical pretzel cones online at They also have some other amazing cone options!

2 cups half & half
1 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp butter
1 1/2 tsp butter flavored extract (this really gives it that buttery taste!)
1 tsp good vanilla extract
2 cups whipping cream
pinch of salt (it just makes it better!)
3/4 cup toffee pieces (they sell these in the baking aisle, or you could break up a heath or skor candy bar into little pieces)

In a medium saucepan combine half & half, butter & brown sugar, stir over med-low heat until sugar is dissolved and butter is melted. Add your pinch of salt now...Chill in fridge. Once chilled, add whipping cream and extracts; mix well. Freeze in ice cream maker according to manufacturers instructions. Fold in toffee bits while ice cream is still soft. Place in a freezer tight container and freeze to firm up. Holy heavenly goodness!! ENJOY!
