This is a serious experiment in porcine dessert indulgence. It’s rich and creamy homemade vanilla ice cream with tidbits of pig candy and bacon-infused pralines riddled throughout. The savory, sweet and slight spiciness of the bacon are magical with the cool creaminess of the ice cream.
I used my old-school electric ice cream maker and a simple no-cook base recipe. Use the machine you have and the recipe you like.
Combine the cream, milk, condensed milk and vanilla in a large mixing bowl and whisk well until all of the ingredients are completely incorporated. Cover and refrigerate.
Prepare your ice cream maker and freeze the ice cream per the instructions.
Gently fold the bacon and pralines into the soft ice cream and freeze in an airtight container until it hardens (3-4 hours).
Serve and enjoy! I served mine with a drizzle of a homemade maple caramel and some additional chopped bacon and pralines.
