This Burnt Almond Fudge Ice Cream is creamy, rich and chocolatey. And as a bonus, it’s super easy to make!
Summer is in full swing at our house. Our neglected yard is getting some much needed help now that I have four boys home. The phone is ringing off the wall with friends calling to see if said boys can play. The AC is crankin’. The freezer is stocked with popsicles. And we are using every excuse we can find to make homemade ice cream.
I am completely smitten with homemade ice cream and if calories weren’t an issue, I would eat it every single day. Even in the dead of winter. But of course it is absolutely perfect for summertime.
I am always looking for new ice cream recipes to try, as well as changing up some of my favorites by adding different ingredients. I love a good custard based ice cream like my Rocky Road Ice Cream, but sometimes I want something easier.
While perusing my cookbooks, I found a recipe for vanilla ice cream that called for sweetened condensed milk. That stuff makes anything yummy, so I decided to give it a try. I was in the mood for chocolate ice cream, so I added cocoa and toasted almonds and hoped it would work out.
Oh my gosh. Did it ever! For how quick it was to make, I was surprised at how rich and creamy this ice cream turned out. So yummy! I can’t wait to experiment with different flavors. Somebody’s got to. 🙂
