Now that we have our ingredients ready, let’s start making this delicious English Toffee Freeze recipe!

Step 1: Make the Toffee Ice Cream Base

First, scoop out and place 4 scoops of toffee ice cream in a blender. Add 1/2 cup of half-and-half, 4 ounces Creme de Cacao, and 1/4 cup of brandy.

Blend all the ingredients together for about 30 seconds or until smooth.

Step 2: Freeze the Toffee Ice Cream

Pour the blended mixture into a freezer-safe container that is big enough to hold all of the ingredients. You can use an airtight container to avoid freezer burn and for longer shelf life.

Leave some space on top of the ice cream mixture to allow expansion during freezing. Cover the container with an airtight lid.

Step 3: Add English Toffee Pieces

Chop up your homemade English toffee into small bite-size pieces.

Sprinkle 1/2 cup of small English toffee pieces over the ice cream mixture in your freezer-safe container, then press them down gently with a spoon or spatula.

Step 4: Create Two Layers

Add another layer of ice cream mixture on top of the sprinkled English toffee pieces, roughly 2 cups of blended mixture for each layer.

Sprinkle another layer of small English toffee pieces on top of the second layer. Use enough to cover the entire surface.

Step 5: Freeze for a Few Hours

Place your freezer-safe container with layered ice cream and toffee inside your freezer. Allow it to freeze for several hours up to overnight or until it’s solid.

You can freeze this dish for up to two months.

Step 6: Serving Your English Toffee Freeze

If you’re not using this dessert right away, store it in an airtight container in the freezer.

Before serving, set the container on the counter until the ice cream is easy to scoop. You can also use a microwave if you have a hard time scooping it out.

Step 7: Garnish Your Dessert

If you like, top your dessert with some toffee bits and chocolate syrup to make it extra special.

Substitutions and Variations

Now, let’s talk about some substitutions and variations to make this English Toffee Freeze recipe your own.

If you don’t have creme de cacao on hand, you can substitute it with Kahlua or coffee extract for a coffee-flavored twist. You can also swap half-and-half with whole milk or heavy cream depending on your preference.

For an extra boozy kick, add a splash of brandy to the mix and enjoy the warm sensation in each scoop.

If you’re unable to find toffee ice cream at your local grocery store, fret not! Simply use vanilla ice cream or any other flavor you prefer and add in homemade toffee bits. To make homemade toffee, combine butter, sugar, and corn syrup and bring it up to high heat until it turns amber in color. Pour the mixture into a pan lined with buttered parchment paper and let it cool down before chopping into bits.

For a chocolate-covered toffee twist, sprinkle some melted chocolate or chocolate chips over the top of each scoop before serving.

If you’re watching your calorie or sugar intake, try using sugar-free ice cream and substitute regular toffee for a keto-friendly version.

The possibilities are endless with this recipe, so feel free to experiment and make it your own!

One of the best things about this English Toffee Freeze recipe is that it can be served in a variety of ways. When it comes to pairing, think about what you would pair with a classic ice cream sundae. Serve the toffee freeze on its own with a drizzle of Creme de Cacao for added sweetness and depth of flavor. Crumble some homemade toffee bars or sprinkle toffee bits over the top for added crunch and texture, and turn the dessert into a fun and decadent affair.

If you’re feeling adventurous, try serving the English Toffee Freeze alongside a slice of warm fruit pie, such as apple or peach. The coolness of the toffee freeze provides the perfect balance to the warm and comforting pie. And if you’re looking for something extra indulgent, why not try serving your toffee freeze between two chocolate wafer cookies, and enjoy it as an ice cream sandwich?

No matter how you decide to serve it, don’t forget to take into account the nutritional content of this dessert. Although it may be tempting to load on additional toppings and sweeteners, keep in mind that each 4-ounce serving contains approximately 200-250 calories.

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

One of the best things about this English Toffee Freeze Recipe is that it can be made ahead of time and stored for later enjoyment. In fact, allowing the toffee ice cream to freeze overnight makes it even better as it gives the flavors a chance to meld together.

When it comes to storing this toffee freeze, an airtight container is key. Once you’ve made the recipe, carefully spoon it into a freezer-safe container with layers separated by waxed paper. This will help prevent ice crystals from forming and keeps everything tasting fresh.

You can store this English Toffee Freeze recipe in the freezer for up to 2 months without any impact on its quality. I recommend storing it in the back of your freezer where temperatures are consistent and avoid any freezing and thawing cycles as they can affect the texture and flavor of your dessert.

If you plan on serving this treat later on, simply let it sit out at room temperature for a few minutes before scooping. The texture should soften enough to make scooping a breeze. If you have leftovers, simply scoop them into an airtight container and store in the freezer for later use.

One thing to note is that unlike traditional toffee candy that can last for up to 6 months, frozen English toffee tends to last only up to 2 weeks when stored at room temperature or in an airtight container in the fridge after being reheated.

Whether you’re making this English Toffee Freeze for yourself, friends or family, it’s sure to be a crowd-pleaser. With these simple tips for make-ahead, storing and reheating your masterpiece, you’ll be enjoying perfect English Toffee Freeze every time!

Tips for Perfect Results

As a chef, I have a few tricks up my sleeve for making the perfect English Toffee Freeze recipe. Here are some tips to ensure your frozen dessert turns out perfectly every time.

Firstly, make sure that all the ingredients are at room temperature. This will help them blend together smoothly, preventing any lumps or gritty textures in your toffee mixture.

When making the toffee mixture, use a heavy-bottomed saucepan to prevent scorching or burning. Stir the mixture slowly and continuously with a wooden spoon until it reaches the desired consistency and color. This ensures that the toffee is evenly cooked throughout.

Another useful tip is to separate your layers of English Toffee before freezing. To do this, cut waxed paper into squares and place each layer of toffee on top, separating each with waxed paper. Then safely store them in an air-tight container at room temperature or in the freezer.

When it comes to storing leftover English Toffee Freeze, make sure you store it in an air-tight container in the freezer for up to 3 months. The cold temperature will help preserve its texture and flavor.

If you’re feeling adventurous, try substituting different types of ice cream for the toffee ice cream in this recipe. Chocolate or vanilla ice cream would work well too! Additionally, you can add extra toppings such as whipped cream or chocolate shavings for an extra decadent treat.

Lastly, if you plan on making homemade English Toffee as part of this recipe, use a candy thermometer when cooking the sugar mixture. This helps ensure that the candy reaches the correct hard crack stage resulting in that perfect crunchy texture we love!

Follow these tips and tricks, and you’ll be enjoying the perfect English Toffee Freeze every time!
