FOODIË: NO CHURN ICEBOX COFFEE CRUNCH ICE CREAM


The heat is on! Sweltering heat keeps me looking for a refreshing treat! So when the Birmingham Bloggers posted a recipe contest using Icebox Coffee, not only was  I super excited to try out a new product but a new food trend as well! No churn Ice cream!
INGREDIENTS: HEAVY CREAM. CONDENSED MILK. ICE BOX COFFEE. WALNUTS.  SHORTBREAD COOKIES. BROWN SUGAR CARAMEL.

No churn ice cream has to be the easiest and most rewarding recipe! With just two ingredients, Whipped Heavy Cream and Condensed Milk, you can make a base cream worthy of any good imagination!  


After tasting the Madagascar Vanilla Icebox Coffee, I already knew I wanted to pair the smooth flavor with toasted walnuts, shortbread cookie crumbles and a swirl of brown sugar caramel!

 
CREAM: Whip 2 cups of Heavy Cream in a stand mixer until stiff peaks form. In a bowl mix 1 can of sweetened condensed milk with 1 cup of Madagascar Vanilla Ice Box Coffee.

CRUNCH: I toasted 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts and crumbled around 9 shortbread cookies (I used Nabisco Lorna Doone). 
Before I began my ice cream I prepped some brown sugar caramel. Check out this easy recipe from Life Love & Sugar! Store purchased caramel will work as well!




























Fold your whipped cream into your condensed milk/coffee combo. Then gently fold in the walnuts and cookies. 

Pour 1/3 of your ice cream mixture into your pre chilled pan ( I used a 9" square cake pan). 

Drizzle some of your caramel sauce on top then pour in another 1/3 of your ice cream mixture. 

Repeat the drizzle and top with your remaining ice cream mixture. 

Saran wrap your pan and place it in the freezer undisturbed for 6 hrs. 























The wait is the hardest part of this recipe but believe me it's worth it!

DËSIGN MASHUP: DIY ACRYLIC FRAMED SCARF




1.FRAMED HERMES SCARVES: EMILIA de PORET
2. DIY LUCITE FRAME:RAIN ON A TIN ROOF
3.CUSTOM LUCITE FRAME: HONEY & FITZ


SUBSTITUTION:  Of course I was absolutely in love with the Hermes Scarves featured in Emilia Poret's home tour! I mean I literally dream in one color... "Hermes Orange". However, it seems as though my bank account does not contain "Hermes Coins" so I searched and searched and searched for a budget friendly substitution. Thanks to my knack for online shopping, I got a great deal on this silk Versace scarf!  

PATIENCE: I'm the type of DIYer that's either totally obsessed or totally over it! Inspired by  the clean and modern look of acrylic framing, it was the brass hardware that made this project a must!  After scouring etsy for acrylic framing kits, I realized the hardware (brass standoff bolts) were going to be a challenge to secure. With long wait times and etsy shops on hiatus I went back to the net to find a suitable alternative. I came across  Rain on A Tin Roof 's DIY Lucite Frame for their witty poster and off to the hardware store I went for brass screws and bolts!          




VOILA: After a few trials and errors... 
1. I tried using magnets (Honey & Fitz) to hold the scarf flat - ended up using double sided tape.
2. Drilling the holes for my screws and bolts one piece at a time - ended up snapping one corner of acrylic. Thankfully I had enough wiggle room to have the acrylic cut down.

I am totally in love with my new wall art! Versace dreams aren't so bad after all!
