Salted Caramel Cookie Ice Cream Cups

Do you follow me on Snapchat yet? I’ll let you guess what my username is…because it’s the exact same as every other social media channel I own. Can you guess? I trust your brain. Anywho, I am slightly obsessed with it. Well, only somedays. It’s my therapy session. So whenever sh*t is hitting the fan in my life, I’m chatting on Snapchat. Except my profile is set so that whoever is watching but isn’t my friend on there, they can’t message me. I do that to have some peace and quiet. That way I can be weird AF and I have no one telling me that I’m weird AF. Or people telling me that goat cheese isn’t paleo. THANK YOU, YOU HAVE HELPED ME SO MUCH WITH YOUR INSIGHT. People still let me know that I’m weird AF by writing me on instagram, but they’re weirder for taking the time to switch social media channels to let me know I’m weird. Weirdo. Did you keep up with that?

A couple of my friends, including my fiancé, told me that I have an alter ego on snapchat. He also told me I’m slightly annoying on it sometimes. Jokes on him since he’s marrying me! I don’t think it’s an alter ego, I think it’s just my true personality that has to be pushed down by being an adult. When you’re buying a new sewer line, you have to act like you wear mom jeans on a daily basis instead of having emotional break downs. So snapchat let’s me tap into my teenage side again…minus the acne, small boobs and constant fear of being too weird.

You know what is just the worst? Listening to divorced people talk about marriage. I get it, you hate marriage right now because you’re newly divorced and probably slightly poor since divorce in Colorado is a 50/50 split. I’m sure I would feel the same way. But right now, I don’t. I’m pumped about marrying a human being that makes me a better person. I’m excited to put that dress on, say those vows, and celebrate this exciting time. I don’t need a Debby downer stepping in trying to poop all over my excitement. Knock that sh*t off divorced people! Others still deserve their own happiness!

Speaking of happiness, we’ve been trying to put together a playlist for the wedding reception. We sent out any email to all of our guest asking for requests and they all wrote back in some sort of short joke or unhelpful answer like, “There better be some country!” Well, you idiot (I can say that because they’re my friends), if you want country, request a country song. There are about 16889012942.2 country songs out there, many of which should not be played at a wedding. Like, “The Thunder Rolls” by Garth Brooks. Not the best wedding song. Good country soon, but not a great way to ring in the wedding night. So we’ve put the entire playlist together ourselves. And since YOU are more reliable than the friends coming to our wedding, any songs you think should be at the wedding? I’m not playing the YMCA or macarena kind of bullsh*t, but I’m totally down for Katy Perry or Beyonce. You know, the good stuff. Help me, I trust you!

PaleOMG Salted Caramel Cookie Ice Cream Cups


Salted Caramel Cookie Ice Cream Cups

  • Yield: 14 cups 1x



For toppings


  1. Make ice cream and set in freezer to set up more. (You can also buy coconut milk ice cream if you are in a pinch).
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place pecans in a food processor and pulse until they have broken down into a flour consistency.Add almond flour, ghee, egg, honey, vanilla extract, baking powder, cinnamon and salt and puree until is combines completely together (it will form a ball in the food processor). Using a mini muffin tin, use a cookie scoop to scoop out a ball of the crust mixture and place into 14 muffin tin holes. Use your fingers (or the bottom of a spice jar) to press the dough into each muffin tin hole, into a cup formation. Use a fork to poke a few holes in the bottom of each to keep from rising as it bakes. Bake for 20 minutes. Let cool completely.
  3. While the cups bake, make the caramel and let cool slightly.
  4. Melt chocolate in double boiler or microwave.
  5. Once cups are cool, pour 1 teaspoon of melted chocolate into the bottom of the cups. Place in fridge for 2-3 minutes until set. Then use a 1-2 tablespoon cookie scoop to scoop ice cream into each cup. Top with a spoonful of caramel and a pinch of coarse sea sat! Eat up right away!

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. These look delicious!! If I wanted to make these, eat some now and save some for later, would you freeze the shells without the chocolate/ice cream/toppings and then assemble later or would you assemble without the toppings and freeze that way?

    Music ideas:
    Show me love by Sam Feldt feat. Kimberly Anne (EDX’s Indian Summer Radio Mix is my fave)
    I love it by Icona Pop
    Hold my hand by Jess Glynne
    Don’t Panic by Ellie Goulding
    The Sound by The 1975

  2. Since you mentioned people shitting on your excitement and wanting a fun Beyoncé song for your wedding, I really really think the song you need to hear today is Love on Top by Beyoncé 🙂

  3. I second the “I Love it” by Icona Pop. Definitely the craziest dance reaction from all of the guests at my sister’s wedding….after a few cocktails 🙂 Also, “I Got a Feeling” by the Black Eyed Peas.

  4. Well, I have no idea what kind of music you like but here are some of my favorite dancing songs:
    – Pick Up the Pieces by Average White Band
    – Get Up Offa That Thing by James Brown
    – Shout by the Isley Brothers
    – Sexy Bitch by David Guetta, Akon
    – Money Ain’t a Thang by Jermaine Dupri, Jay Z
    – Hynotize by Notorious BIG

  5. Hi Julie! Thanks for all of your awesome recipes!!! I am allergic to almonds. Can I sub the flour for another one? I have some hazelnut flour on hand, but I can get something else, as long as it tastes good. As for your wedding play list, I think every event should have some type of “line dance”, like maybe the Wobble, Electric Slide, Cha-cha Slide, or something where everyone, both young and old can participate. It’s so much fun to see everyone on the dance floor! Best wishes to you!!!

  6. I’ve been planning my weddings songs too–don’t underestimate the power of a cheesy group dance song! If you want aunts and uncles and grandparents to get up and shake it you have to play “shout” and “the cupid shuffle” and crap like that. I know it’s cheesy, but people love cheese. Especially goat cheese. See what I did there?

  7. Love the idea of asking for song requests!

    Something in the Way You Move – Ellie Goulding
    On My Mind – Ellie Goulding
    What Do You Mean? – Justin Beiber (I know.. I know.. but it’s so damn catchy!)
    Be Together – Major Lazer
    Love on Top – Beyonce
    Wild Wild Love – Pitbull
    (sorry I seem to have the love theme going on haha!)

    For the country seeking person… (although I know some of my friends would say this isn’t traditional country) you can’t go wrong with Billy Currington (more upbeat and catchy) – We are Tonight or Hey Girl are good.

  8. I didn’t suggest many songs at my destination wedding and the DJ did a great job! I just told him no “chicken dance” or “shout”…you know the typical bull shit that you don’t want either. I did have them play some Bob Marley during dinner bc cmon you have to in Mexico. You’ll have a blast, forget worrying about the little shit. Congrats again!

  9. Recipe looks delish!!!

    These always get me dancing:

    Chicken Fried – Zac Brown Band
    That’s My Kind of Night – Luke Bryan
    Holiday – Madonna
    Uptown Funk – Mark Ronson (feat. Bruno Mars)
    Blurred Lines – Robin Thicke
    Danza Kudro – Don Omar & Lucenzo
    El Taxi – Osmani Garcia (feat. Pitbull & Sensto)
    I Don’t Like It, I Love It – Flo Rida (feat. Robin Thicke)

  10. Hold My Hand by Jess Glynne! Great dancing song and so up beat. As for a country song for those country folk I am a fan of Wanted by Hunter Hayes or Then by Brad Paisley. Also I can’t wait to make these and eat all of them in one sitting

    1. Yes! I was going to say Hold my Hand too! Also love Stay the Night by Zedd ft. Hayley. The only country song I really know has already been recommended, Chicken Fried.

  11. These look incredible… And, everyone has their own weirdness. I adore yours! My husband and I got married about 6 months ago and I had the SAME thought about divorced people. But whatevs. No one can rain on your parade. 🙂

    These were the most fun at our wedding:
    -Piano Man (it’s a little slow, but our dueling pianos made everyone circle around my husband and I and sang it, it was amazing)
    -Jump Around
    -Get Low
    -Chicken Fried
    -Sweet Caroline
    -Pour Some Sugar on Me

    I hope it’s your BEST DAY EVER! 🙂

  12. I am salivating over these ice cream cups right now. For wedding songs, I am just going to suggest one – Hot in Herre by Nelly. It’s just a great throwback.

  13. I feel your pain- I was so upset when the response I got from my coworker when I told him I was getting married was “why?”. he totally killed my buzz! Don’t let anyone bring you down- being married is SO MUCH FUN. I love it. enjoy every second of it!

    We had the song “Time of Your Life” from dirty dancing as our last song of the night and it was awesome!

  14. Let me just start by saying you make me feel not so lonely by freaking out about the wedding. Your snapchats speak to my soul. I feel your panic. Everything hits the fan come wedding time. Oh, you have money for a wedding? You’re just gonna total your car five months out… No big deal.
    I get you.

    A Thousand Years- Christina Perri
    Like I’m Gonna Lose You- Meghan Trainor
    Yours- Russell Dickerson

  15. Here are some songs that I had played at my wedding that were a big hit:

    Break Free – Ariana Grande
    Shake it Off – Taylor Swift
    Party Rock Anthem – LMFAO
    Born this Way – Lady Gaga

    My husband and I are MJ fans, so we had Billy Jean, Smooth Criminal, and Thriller on our list along with some classics like I Wanna Dance with Somebody by Whitney Houston and Shout.

    Love your blog and all of the recipes you create! Have an amazing time at your wedding!!

  16. First, I love your snap chat. The shorts you were wearing for the OOTD , are those the ones you posted about?

  18. I’ve never commented before but I feel so strongly that you have to have Some Nights by Fun. on there that I’m commenting finally!! I love that it gets everyone so excited and dancing.

  19. I have been married to my best friend for 26 years and it is the greatest joy of my life. Us happily married people do exist! Being a child of the 80’s, I have to suggest “Wild Thing” by Tone Loc. Best wishes on your wedding day!

  20. Soooo I’m gonna go cliche here but “Don’t Stop Believing” by Journey is a must.

    Marriage is seriously the best. Don’t let those haters get you down. Congrats, and enjoy every minute of your day together!

  21. I love me some music, especially dance music and per your posts, you love to dance.

  22. First can’t wait to make these cookies!!

    Wedding songs, might be dating myself a little here but “Crazy in Love” Beyonce & Jay Z is so fun and “Living on a Prayer” Bon Jovi. Have fun creating your wedding playlist!!

  23. You’re hilarious on Snapchat, Alter ego, ehhh maybe. But it’s an eff-ing hilarious one. And that’s all that matters.

    Listening to divorced people are the worst…we are getting it now since me and my boyfriend ( almost 30, been together a couple years *gasp*) just bought a house together. ‘Ohh, from my experience, I wouldn’t do it”….”Ohhh, but you guys aren’t married, or even engaged….”. It’s so damn annoying…like I get it, I do. And I appreciate advice, but not from people who hold are still bitter and holding grudges…why don’t people just mind their own business? If I wanted your advice, I would ask for it! Rant over…

    Anyway, I’m torn between wanting you to keep snapchatting us during your wedding week, but I also think you should enjoy as much as possible because you totally deserve it! I just can’t wait to see pictures.

    Anyway, Some songs that I’ve seen been huge hits at weddings for dancing and being loud…

    Cha Cha Slide
    The Wobble
    Cupid Shuffle
    Single Ladies
    Sweet Caroline

    Oh, this recipe totally looks amazing!! Can’t wait for warmer weather to make it!!

  24. Omg, thank you for asking US for song requests!!! I had a lot of great suggestions for my wedding and it was so much fun!! The following are always fun to hear and dance to at a wedding, in my awesome opinion.

    Africa – Toto
    Party in the USA – Miley
    I wanna dance with somebody – Whitney
    Sexy Back – JT
    I got a feeling – black eyed peas
    let’s groove – earth wind and fire
    dancing queen – ABBA

    I am sooo excited for you!! My husband and I are headed to Costa Rica this weekend for a week vacation just the two of us so I am in the bikini body and packing mode right now too. Have so much fun and try to take your own pics too on your cell so you will remember your own little moments 🙂

  25. Love wedding playlists! Here are my faves to groove to

    Love On Top – Beyonce
    Rolling in the deep – Adele
    Yeah! – Usher
    Get Lucky – daft punk
    Teenage Dream – Katy Perry
    Party in the USA – miley
    September – Earth Wind and Fire

    Don’t You Worry Bout a Thing – Stevie Wonder
    This Will Be An Everlasting Love – Natalie Cole
    Ain’t Too Proud To Beg – The Temptations
    You Are The Best Thing – Ray LaMontagne

    Anything Michael Jackson or Bruno Mars too!

  26. So if you have never stared the majesty of ‘Speakers So LOWD’ right in its YouTube face, you definitely should. I’m actually walking down the aisle to this very song. Please be advised it can cause rhythmic shock and fainting to persons older than 50 simply due to its badassery.

    ‘Dem Pants’ serves as another methodically enlightened tune that is sure to get stuck all up in your brain.

    If anything, these songs will make you smile and basic bitch dance all day.

    Oh – and this recipe has all of my favorite food groups in it – salt, caramel, COOKIES (said in Cookie Monster voice because duh)! I will definitely have to con someone into making if for me 🙂

  27. I think you are so hilarious on snapchat. You make me laugh daily, you do you girl !

    I love the 80’s and 90’s music

    Like a prayer by Madonna
    Money money, lol
    Backstreet boys

  28. We have the same taste in music because we love to DANCEDANCEDANCE!

    Shakira Hips don’t lie
    Justin Bieber What do you mean?
    Taylor Swift Shake it off
    Move Ya Body Nina Sky
    Fantasy Mariah Carey
    Return of the Mack Mark Morrison
    Hope I helped! Xo

  29. Hey!

    A huge hit at the wedding that I went to – if you have friends who like to dance is “Get Me Bodied” by Beyoncé and “Danza Kuduro” by Don Omar and Lucenzo 🙂

  30. Juli, you’re da bomb. F all the divorced haters! Also, your snapchat is probably the most entertaining thing on the planet. When I want to avoid adulting for a while, I live vicariously through your snaps.

    Blue- I’m blue

    Have an amazing wedding! My hubs and I had a destination wedding last summer and it is THE BEST! You’ll be a stunning bride! Enjoy the process and don’t sweat the small stuff 🙂


  31. For dance songs, I think these two would be perfect for a Jamaican wedding because they have a tropical/island feel to them:

    Shaggy “I need your love”
    Don Omar – Danz Kuduro ft. Lucenzo

  32. Haha, I totally agree with the fact that snapchat lets you show your “true personality that has to be pushed down by being an adult.” I love it, and I love yours!

    So 12 might have been a little overkill…oh well

    -All You Need Is Love – The Beatles
    -We Will Rock You – Queen
    -I Believe In A Thing Called Love – The Darkness
    -Tightrope – Janelle Monae
    -This Is How We Do It – Montell Jordan

    -I’m Gonna Be (500 miles) – The Proclaimers
    -Wagon Wheel – Old Crow Medicine Show
    -Happy Valentine’s Day – OutKast
    -All Night – Icona Pop
    -I Got The Feelin’ – James Brown
    -Home – Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros

  33. Katie May Smith

    I’m so excited to see wedding photos!

    -A Case of You; James Wolpert
    -I Will Be Blessed ; Ben Howard
    -Move Like You Want; Ben Howard
    -That’s What’s Up; Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros (personal favorite, such a fun song!)
    -Shut Up and Dance; Walk The Moon

  34. my suggestions 🙂

    chris brown – forever (even though he’s a woman beater)
    pharrell – happy (because it’s so fun, and you’re happy, right?)

    I second “get lucky” from daft punk and “uptown funk” (because I’m not a dancer and that song makes me want to DANCE!)

  35. Some of the songs on our wedding playlist:

    Ed Sheeran – One
    Ed Sheeran – Kiss Me (Acoustic)

    She’s a Star- David Choi
    Sweet Disposition- The Temper Trap

    Have the best time, and the most amazing day! Congrats!

  37. Juli

    Love the site, the recipes and your ability to be yourself. “haters going to hate-let them” Marriage is what you put into it, so push all the negative Nelly’s aside and enjoy your day and remember the journey starts then. Wedding song suggestions have all been covered by all the others on here, but don’t stress-enjoy your day with your man, friends and family if they give you crap about the music-refer them to your email.

  38. “Thank You For Loving Me” by Bon Jovi. May favorite love song!

    And … I just want to say … you rock! And happy nuptials to you both!

  39. if you wanted to make this more carb-y and little less fat, could you sub something like oat flour for the almond flour?
