  • *Test Kitchen Tip:
    To ensure that the carbonated beverage stays on top of the gelatin mixture, hold a wooden spoon above the gelatin layer and pour the carbonated beverage over the back of the spoon.

  • Makes: 8 servings Serving Size: 4 ounces Start to Finish: 30 mins

    Ingredients
    Caramel ice cream topping
    Dark chocolate ice cream topping
    1/3 cup sugar
    Coarse sea salt
    6 cups vanilla ice cream
    3/4 cup milk
    3 tablespoons caramel ice cream topping
    3 tablespoons dark chocolate ice cream topping

  • Directions

    Drizzle caramel topping in a zigzag design inside each of eight 5- to 6-ounce glasses. Drizzle chocolate ice cream topping into each glass. Arrange glasses on a tray; freeze until needed.
    Butter a large piece of foil; set aside. In a large heavy skillet spread sugar in an even layer. Heat over medium-high heat until sugar begins to melt, shaking the skillet occasionally; do not stir. When the sugar begins to melt, reduce heat to medium-low and cook about 5 minutes more or until all of the sugar melts and is golden, gradually stirring the melted sugar into the

  • unmelted sugar with a wooden spoon. With a spoon, immediately drizzle the melted sugar in eight circles (each about 3 inches in diameter) onto prepared foil, drizzling zigzags inside the circles to resemble webs. Quickly sprinkle each with salt.* Set aside until needed.

    Just before serving, in a blender combine half of the ice cream, half of the milk, half of the 3 tablespoons caramel topping, and half of the 3 tablespoons chocolate ice cream topping. Cover and blend until smooth, stopping to scrape down side as needed. Pour ice cream mixture into four of the prepared glasses.

  • Repeat with the remaining ice cream, milk, caramel topping, and chocolate ice cream topping. Top each with one of the salted-caramel webs.

    *Test Kitchen Tip:
    The sugar will harden quickly, so it is helpful if someone else sprinkles salt on the webs right after drizzling as you continue to drizzle the melted sugar.
