As far as home fragrances go, I always go for the sweeter varieties. Sugary scents that smell as good, or even better, than they taste. Like this pair of air fresheners from Renuzit’s Tempting Indulgences Collection, Chocolate Covered Cherries and Crème Brûlée.
I was asked to come up with an original recipe inspired by the new crème brûlée fragrance. After googling and searching pinterest for a while, I took a picture of a basic recipe for crème brûlée that I found online, just to remind myself what my new dessert must taste like. It’s one of my personal favorites, but it was a challenge for me to replicate the essence without making the actual dessert itself.
During my shopping trip, I still had no idea what exactly I’d make. I decided to visit the home fragrance section to find the scent I had received, but the Renuzit shelf was all empty. I guess they are that new.
I picked up some items with the basic flavors: heavy cream, sugar, vanilla pudding.
I thought about making mini vanilla pudding pies with a caramel sauce on top but when I got home, I had the idea to make ice cream and when given the choice, Emma chose the ice cream. Surprise, surprise!
The ingredients, a combination of a few items I shopped for at Walmart along with things I had in my pantry. It’s not easy, creating a recipe. Much respect for those who do it daily.
You will need:
- 2 cups ice
- 3/4 cup heavy cream
- 2 tablespoons vanilla pudding mix
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 4 graham crackers, broken into small pieces
- 1/2 cup butterscotch morsels
- Sugar cone/bowl (optional)
Add first four ingredients to blender and blend well, making sure the ice is well pulverized.
Meanwhile, melt about 1/2 cup of the butterscotch morsels in the microwave, stirring after each 20-second increment.
Drop bits of the melted morsels and the graham cracker pieces into the ice cream mixture.
Pour into a small freezer-safe bowl and chill for an our or so to firm.
