Serves
2 TO 4
Preparation
20 min
Cooking
15 min
Ingredients
  • 1 container natrel lactose free very vanilla ice cream
  • 1 cup caramel popcorn
  • ½ cup caramel or maple sauce (your choice)
  • 4-8 chunks of peanut brittle

peanut brittle ingredients

  • 1 cup sugar
  • ¼ cup water
  • ¼ cup corn syrup
  • ½ cup Natrel Lactose free butter, cubed
  • 1 cup unsalted roasted peanuts
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
Preparation
  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large saucepan, on medium-high heat, bring the sugar, water and corn syrup to a boil. Once the sugar has melted, boil the mixture, without stirring, for 10 minutes or until it is a golden caramel. (To know if it is cooked enough, put a drop of the caramel into some ice water. If it hardens, it’s ready!)
  3. Lower heat to medium-low and add the butter, 1 piece at a time, whisking until combined. Add the peanuts and cook for 1 minute, stirring with a wooden spoon. Add the baking soda and stir to blend. (It will bubble up slightly.)
  4. Pour the mixture onto the baking sheet and spread quickly with a spatula. Cool completely. Break the mixture into chunks and store in a dry place.

To assemble the sundaes

  1. Start with a generous scoop or two of ice cream each.
  2. Drizzle with caramel sauce and then top with some caramel popcorn and peanut brittle
