Indiana is experiencing its first heat wave of the summer season. If you are not from the Midwest I’ll explain it to you in one word…. M- I -S -E- R- A- B- L- E.  Heat, humidity, and mosquitos, the usual suspects!  I attempted to get my morning run/walk in before it got too hot and even that was an epic fail. So I did what any red-blooded Hoosier does, eat ice cream!  Not just any old ice cream but a Salted Caramel Pretzel Ice Cream Terrine. I know, it sounds fancy but really it isn’t. This creamy dreamy recipe can be customized to any flavor and filling you like so be creative and send me your pictures.  I say if you can’t be the heat, “Let them eat ice cream”

Here’s what you’ll need:

1 loaf pan

Parchment Paper

2 pints Ice Cream- Softened (I used Vanilla and Chocolate, but feel free to use any flavor)

1 Jar Salted Caramel Sauce- (I used Trader Joe’s brand, best on the planet)

1 Jar Hot Fudge Sauce- ( Hershey Brand)

1  small package Pretzels (crushed)


Work quickly, because of the melt factor!

Line a 9 inch loaf pan with parchment paper, make sure the paper extends well beyond the loaf pan,. (will help when you remove from pan later)
