Ingredients
Cinnamon Crunch Bits
  • 1 Tbsp butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup sugar plus 2 Tbsp
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
Ice Cream
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup half & half
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4-1/2 cup dulce de leche
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix sugar, cinnamon, and melted butter together. Spread the mixture on a parchment-lined baking sheet in a thin, even layer and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until crisp. Set aside and allow to cool. Once cooled, break into bite-sized pieces.
  2. In a bowl, mix heavy cream, half and half, brown sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and salt together. Pour into a chilled ice cream maker, and follow the directions of your ice cream maker.
  3. Once the ice cream has thickened and is almost finished (for my ice cream maker it was about 20 minutes), drizzle in 1/4 to 1/2 cup dulce de leche, depending upon your preference. Next, add in cinnamon sugar pieces.
  4. If you like your ice cream soft-serve, eat it right away, or store in an airtight container for 3-4 hours in the freezer.
  5. Enjoy!
