Love it! I'm usually not such a big fan of licorice, but I love the colour and I can never say no to homemade ice cream.


Very very pretty! I am a big fan of liquorice (and that liquorice toffee - YUMMM!) and love the chance to taste it in ice cream when I see it too.


Where did you find the licorice? I've never seen those licorice toffees anywhere and they look fantastic!


Wow what a fantastic flavor! It looks wonderful for a licorice fan like me.

just lovely.


Catherine: I bought them at a Candy store in Kensington Calgary. You can find them at english import shops often as well.. or old fashioned Candy places


I love the color... I wonder what adding some lavender to that would do.

My German the Rockies

Wow, that is a dream come true ice cream! We all love liquorice. Why have I never thought about an ice cream like this? Thanks for the recipe!!!


Looks divine! What a perfect treat for October. Licorice ice cream is my favorite flavour. Unless there is such a thing as candy corn flavored ice cream? That would probably be a close second :)

I love the color of this ice cream. It is seductive! And what an interesting flavor; I've never had anything like it. Now I want a big bowl!

I love this! I recently purchased an ice cream maker that I've been wanting to use, but the last (and first) time I gave it a whirl my custard turned out chunky and gross...I'm not entirely sure what I did wrong. I may use your recipe next time around and try to follow it to a T.

Also, I definitely agree that "dapper" is the perfect adjective for that ice cream. Very nice (and fancy)!


Try the grey stuff, it's delicious
Don't believe me?

I'm more curious about the spoon - I think I need one of those for my ice cream lovin' hubby :)

Clockwork Lemon

Lauren: I was singing that exact line when I was trying the custard!!

Amy: I got the spoons from etsy. I have one that says "her ice cream" This seller will do custom orders and is all around awesome


Wow, I've never heard of licorice ice cream, but this sounds delicious. I have to agree that a gray custard isn't very appealing (I tried making black sesame ice cream once and it was gray too), but it definitely looks a lot tastier when frozen.

yummy supper

Hey Stephanie,

Licorice ice cream... how fun, and "dapper" indeed. And I have to say that every time you use that spoon I smile. I LOVE it!



fascinating...i don't think i have ever even met anyone who likes licorice flavour!

I LOVE description of the colour though "dapper grey" - that's the first thing i noticed about it!

Olf Tunte

That sounds delicious, and looks beautiful Seddy!

Jessica @ bake me away!

Being obsessed with grey, I adore the color! I have to say that I've never been able to like the taste of licorice, though. Hadn't ever seen licorice like that!

Carol Egbert

I never considered licorice as a possible ice cream flavor - I'd sure love to have a wall painted that color.

Darling work. I love how it turned out. You are so special in what you do for your family, guests and friends. I also noticed my buddy Max snuck in that pic.

Mrs. Measurement

Where did you get that spoon? It's so fun! I'd love to see if they have other wording options.

P.S. The ice cream looks great too.

Inga O

I love love LOVE licorice and would love to try this. I had no idea that someone out there even made licorice flavoured ice cream. I must try it!


This looks absolutely divine and I love the fact you don't need an ice-cream maker. I have never heard of licorice toffee but will try and seek it out in London. I may wait a few months before trying this one though as it's rather cold and windy here at the moment. Happy new year.

Herve Leger

Very cool idea. I think I will have to try this one. I just love the "It's the Little Things" line. Thanks!

Black Licorice

That looks so delicious, I'm definitely going to try that with some vanilla ice cram, yummy :)


There was an ice cream shop names Rose's in Portland, OR who used to carry black licorice. Since they closed down years ago, I've been searching for the same and cannot find anyone to make it anywhere! SO HAPPY I cam across your site! I am ordering the toffee's online and will make my own! I am beyond thrilled! Thank you!!!


I've been searching for a recipe like yours to try with some Herbsaint 'Liqueur d'Anis'. I have been making ice cream with different types of liquor recently and they have been a hit with friends. My last batch was blueberry ice cream with Bacardi Wolfberry rum. Delicious! I'll let you know how it turns out.

Aimee Gray (@aimeesgray)

I don't have an ice-cream maker so I'm wondering what you think would happen if I just froze it? There are some recipes that work just fine like that.


I question whether this is going to work... :S There was WAY too much licorice (I strained most of it out because it was a dark dark green before most was melted). So it thickened quite a lot because of the licorice, so by the time I incorporated the eggs and put it back on the stove, it looked like it was curdling in about 3-4 min! In a double boiler too! GR! I chucked it in an icebath and whisked like crazy so we will see how the custard turns out...


Aimee: Oh no! What kind of licorice did you use? Mine didn't turn the milk green, I used the toffee pictured above. If you used a different candy it might give different results


I have made licorice ice cream many times. I get the super strong black licorice whenever I am in europe. I have used many different types. It all works. Let the licorice dry out. Seep it in the milk and then remove any of it that remains in lump form. The ice cream by then has the grey color and flavor intact. Add black coloring if desired or leave natural. It works great. I do green tea ice cream this way too with seeping the bags in the warmed milk.
