Growing up I loved candy bars. I didn’t reach 325 pounds by eating carrots, that’s for sure. I used to love when Ma and Nana would send me to the store with a note so I could pick up their cigarettes and Pepsi, because I knew I got to pick out a candy bar as my reward. Smoke up ladies!!! Gussy wants his candy bar for being a nice little boy!! Man, I come from good people.
I’ll be honest though, 3 Musketeer’s wasn’t my candy bar of choice. They are a little too boring for me. I need something with substance. Give me caramel and nuts, textures you know. Something to sink my teeth into. So why the 3 Musketeer Ice cream? Well, I like the nougat flavor of the candy bar and then you can just go from there. You can do so much with just the basic of the 3 Musketeer flavor. Nougat seems to be the foundation of a lot of candy.
This ice cream has a real subtle caramely nougaty flavor that I like. Then you build from there. Brings out the inner fat kid in all of us.

216g 3 Musketeer Bars (4 bars)
-combine all ingredients in a pot and cook to melt the candy bars and have a smooth consistency, stirring frequently, it should just come to a simmer not to a boil
-strain cool overnight and spin the next day
-spin according to manufacturers instructions on your ice cream maker (I have to say that)
