No Churn Crunchie Ice Cream!

Delicious, sweet, creamy with honey and caramel… 4 ingredient no-churn Honeycomb Crunchie Ice Cream!
So hello there – a four-ingredient crunchie ice cream?! Oh YES PLEASE. This is glorious, this is delicious, and it’s probably my favourite ever. I mean, I adore my Oreo ice cream still, but caramel is where my heart is, so I just can’t resist it!
SO yeah, the crunchie obsession continues… you guys love all my no-churn ice cream recipes so much, Crunchie flavour just HAD to happen! They are just so easy to make and way too hard to resist making!
I have a good few ice cream recipes on my blog, but they often get forgotten about as people only really crave ice cream when it’s hot! Well, I disagree… whether it is churned, or no-churn like this one, whatever the time of year, homemade ice cream is the bee’s knees.
I decided to make a crunchie version as I seriously was so taken back by how much you all LOVE my other crunchie recipes! Like my honeycomb crunchie cupcakes, honeycomb crunchie fudge, honeycomb crunchie brownies and my honeycomb crunchie cheesecake.
I based this recipe on my no-churn salted caramel ice-cream as that also had a base of the carnations caramel rather than condensed milk like my others. However, with the addition of honey and without the salt it made it taste slightly more honeycomb, and of course, the crunchies in every bite were damn delicious.
I use a whole 600ml in my no-churn ice creams as I find it the perfect amount to make it creamy, delicious, and still get enough ice cream to share at the end. Even I would struggle to finish this whole batch to myself – but luckily, ice cream lasts plenty long enough in the freezer.
One thing I will admit though is that it is SO VERY DIFFICULT to not just use this as a sauce on desserts, or like a cake filling, or just eat it out of the bowl without it even making it to the freezer as the whipped up version is a creamy, heavenly sweet treat that takes licking the bowl to a whole new level.
I purposely leave back a few tablespoons of the mixture to just eat as its so yummy – who cares, its totally worth it. One tip as well is that this mixture makes a great mousse – you can prep it all the way, and just let it set in the fridge in glasses for a few hours for an easy dessert!
You can serve this in a waffle cone, a regular cone, in a bowl – with cream, with cake, with caramel sauce, with extra crunchie… there really is no end to it! Enjoy!
No Churn Crunchie Ice Cream!
- 600 ml double cream
- 397 g Carnations caramel (or Dulce de Leche)
- 100 g clear honey
- 200 g Crunchies (plus extra!)
- In a stand mixer with the whisk attachment (or a large bowl with a hand-held whisk), whisk together the double cream, carnations caramel and honey on a medium-high speed until smooth – this can take a couple of minutes but its worth it!
- Continue to whisk the mixture until it's starting to thicken and is combined.
- Fold through the chopped up Crunchie bars.
- Pour into a freezer proof container, or a 2lb Loaf Tin like in the pictures!
- Add any extra Crunchie pieces you have to the top, and cover with a lid or some cling film and freeze for at least 5-6 hours, or overnight!
- To serve, remove from the freezer about 15 minutes before you wish to serve.
- I use Cadbury's Crunchie bars as they're my favourite and they are so readily available in England so they're always in my cupboard. You can use any type of honeycomb bar that you like, but chocolate covered honeycomb is best because then you get the bits of chocolate too!
- The Honey in the ice cream is optional, it will work easily without it, but I adore the hint of the flavour along with the caramel and Crunchies - makes it even more honeycomby!
- As its homemade and doesn't have any nasty preservatives like most shop bought Ice Creams that are immediately scoop-able they’re a bit hard straight out the freezer!
- This will last in the freezer for 1 month.

My only critism is your comment that the ice cream will last 1 month in the freezer…no way it’s far too yummy to ladt that long xxx
Hi, although it’s a non churn ice cream can I use my kitchen aid ice cream attachment? If so do I make it the same way?
Yes absolutely you can! Enjoy! x
Hi Jane, I tried to make this today but for some reason the cream separated from the caramel and I couldn’t get it thick enough……it was a curdled watery mess if I’m honest!!!!! What am I doing wrong???
Hi Jane can it be made with maple syrup instead of honey?
Hope you can help me! I’m making the ice cream, following the instructions completely but the mixture isn’t thickening & holding itself like you said and now I’ve curdled it 🙁 not sure what I’ve done wrong. Last time I made a non-churn ice cream, it did the same thing.
I’ve just made your mint choc one too and the mixture just didn’t seem that thick but didn’t want to over whisk again. Ive put it in the freezer but seems rather runny and all the choc has sunk. I’m using bowl and hand whisk. Many thanks xx
It may be the hand whisk – it’s worth whipping the cream separately and folding everything together and see if that helps you instead! x
If I don’t have a whisk can I whisk by hand? I only have a small electric one but that wouldn’t even do the job for this…
Desperate to make it in this heat though!
A small electric one would work! Or just by hand x

Hi Jane, I couldn’t get any caramel and don’t think I have enough ingredients to make a homemade caramel either but really wanted to make the crunchie ice cream, so could I use the condensed milk like in some of your other ice cream recipes?
Hey! You can make the caramel using the condensed milk can (notes on my Rolo Ice Cream) – you can just use it straight in this but the flavour will be different!x
Hi Jane, I’m struggling to find Carnation’s Caramel at the moment but I’m desperate to try this! Is there anything I could replace this with? Could I make my own caramel? X
Yes you can make your own! Read my notes on my new Rolo Ice Cream recipe on how to make your own!
Does double cream work better than whipping cream? Thanks
I personally think so yes, as the fat content is higher! x
Just stumbled across the recipe and it’s now in the freezer. If licking the bowl is anything to go by this ice cream will taste amazing. The beauty is that it’s so simple to make too. Thank you Jane.
