Thai food has always seemed magical to me, but nothing has astounded me more than the magic of this simple ice cream topping recipe. Don't be put off by the ingredients—they may not sound like dessert, but when they're stirred together and drizzled over vanilla ice cream, frozen yogurt, or other frozen vanilla desserts, you will have an incredible dessert recipe that will wow your friends and family. A little sweet, a little spicy, this ice cream topping is a gourmet food lover's treat. I call it "Butterscotch with a Kick". And it only takes 5 minutes to make!
Thai Sweet Chili Caramel Sauce:
4 tablespoons Thai sweet chilli sauce
4 tablespoons maple syrup
1 1/2 teaspoons fish sauce, or a generous pinch of salt
1 1/2 teaspoons lime juice
For the Ice Cream:
2 cups vanilla ice cream, or nondairy vanilla ice cream
2 tablespoons fresh mint leaves, or basil leaves, for garnish
2 tablespoons chopped peanuts, or chopped cashews, optional, for garnish
1 teaspoon red chili flakes, optional
Gather the ingredients.
Combine all sauce ingredients together in a saucepan.
Place saucepan over medium heat, stirring continually until sauce is well combined and warm (but not boiling) - about 1 minute.
Place 2 to 3 scoops vanilla ice cream in each serving dish. Now spoon the warm sauce over, dividing the sauce up equally (there will be enough for 2 people - double the sauce recipe for 4 to 5 people).
Serve immediately, or see additional serving options below.
After the sauce has been spooned over ice cream, garnish each dish with:
If you're making this for vegetarians, use salt, or look for vegetarian fish sauce, which is usually available at Vietnamese food stores, online, or well-stocked grocery stores.
