Snicker's Ice Cream Fantasy

Homemade Vanilla Bean Ice cream, Layers of caramel and Snicker's cake can make any day feel like a celebration! Vanilla Bean Ice Cream:
2 c. heavy cream (1 pint)
2 c. light cream = half-n-half (1 pint)
1 c. sugar
1 1/2 t. vanilla bean paste (can substitute vanilla extract)
1/2 t. salt

Directions:
Pour cream directly into ice cream machine center bucket. Add sugar, vanilla and salt. Stir until the sugar dissolves. Process ice cream according to machine instructions. (The Kitchen Aide ice cream bowl is wonderful for ice cream projects.)

After Ice Cream is done, put in freezer for at least 2 hours before using in layered dessert.

Snicker's cake
1 German chocolate cake mix
1 pkg caramels
1/2 c. butter (1 stick)
1/3 c. milk
3/4 c. chocolate chips
1 c. chopped nuts (I use pecans)
and 1 jar of caramel ice cream topping

Directions:

Mix cake mix according to instructions on cake box.
Pour half of the batter in a 9x13-inch pan and bake 20 minutes at 350 degrees.

Melt caramels with butter and milk; pour over the baked cake mix. Sprinkle with the chocolate chips and chopped nuts. Dot remaining cake batter on top.

Bake 20 minutes longer at 250 degrees and 10 minutes at 350 degrees.
Remove from oven and cool. Now the fun part: You can either make a Blizzard out of the caramel ice cream topping, ice cream and Snicker's cake by swirling chunks of cake and Tablespoons of caramel through the ice cream OR you can make layers. Let your imagination go and enjoy!
