What To Avoid While Making this Recipe?

  1. Avoid letting the ice cream mixture come to a boil, as this can affect the texture of the final product.
  2. Make sure the caramel sauce is completely cooled before mixing it with the apples, as hot caramel can cause the apple chunks to become mushy.
  3. Do not skip the step of freezing the ice cream for at least 2 hours before serving, as this allows the flavors to meld together and the ice cream to set properly.
  4. Be careful not to overmix the ice cream once the caramel apple mixture is added, as this can result in a soupy consistency.
  5. Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the freezer to prevent freezer burn and maintain the creamy texture of the ice cream.
