What you need:
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 cup sliced almonds
- 3 egg yolks
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
- toasted coconut or sweetened coconut
Melt butter in a pan over medium heat. Add almonds, stiring constantly until toasted and golden.
Allow almonds to cool on a paper towel then place in the freezer. (they need to get cold so they don't melt the ice cream)
In a bowl, beat egg yolks for about a minute. Stir in sugar and cocoa.
Slowly add cream and milk constantly mixing with an electric mixer. Mix in vanilla and almond extract.
Transfer the mixture to an ice cream maker and freeze following manufacturer’s instructions.
After the ice cream stiffens, add the cold almonds. Let mix in the ice cream maker for a minute or two.
Top with coconut... and if you're feeling extra naughty, chocolate syrup.
