Last year for Mother’s Day our oldest was working in the local hamburger shop as a waiter. His gift to me was to serve and treat me to a nice little meal out of the house. It was the sweetest gesture.

The burgers were great, but even better was seeing him in his element. He’s a real charmer and it was my greatest pleasure to see him interacting with others and making them smile.

Like I said, dinner was tasty and while I may be a bit biased– I have to say that the service was top notch. Much to my surprise, there was even more in store for us.

While my husband and I chatted, letting out food settle and waiting to say goodbye to our son, one of his coworkers came to our table and set down two milkshakes. She gave a nod to our oldest and we said our thanks.

I’ve had many, many milkshakes before and yet nothing could have prepared me for this particular one.

It was thick, it was creamy, and while Salted Caramel and Pretzel weren’t two flavors I’d pictured together before that night– they worked amazingly well together.

I may or may not have gone back a few times just for dessert, and he may or may not have brought me several ones home after work to tide me over in the meantime. 

It’s so rare that the hubs and I agree on and get cravings for the same dessert. I mean he’s the one with the raging sweet tooth– not me. And yet this ice cream treat got past all my usual defenses and personal preference and imprinted itself on me.

Which is why it was almost inevitable that at some point I would get tired of waiting on it and bring the Salted Caramel Pretzel Ice Cream to me.

  3. This one sure is tasty. It’s been a fan favorite of my readers since I shared my recipe for it last year. I guess those images of melty salted caramel ice cream dripping down the cone really grab their attention. It’s perfect for summer.
