Rocky Road Ice Cream
So far, 2020 has been a pretty rocky road. I got sick and needed breathing treatments and we lost our dear Lilly unexpectedly. So, in true Toni fashion I am eating my way through it!
I received these marshmallows in a Keto Krate and wasn't sure what to do with them, then 2020 hit and I knew I needed to make some rocky road ice cream.
Now I have never met an ice cream I don't like and this one is so delicious! I'll have to order these marshmallows often just to be sure this ice cream in always in my freezer.
2 cups heavy cream
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup Boca Sweet (this helps keep the ice cream scoopable, but erythritol will work)
3 oz. unsweetened chocolate, chopped fine
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 Tbsp. vodka (helps with texture but optional)
1 cup marshmallow, cut into small pieces
1 cup almonds, chopped
In a medium saucepan heat 1 cup of the cream and butter until butter is melted and mixture just starts to bubble around the edges. Remove from heat. Add sweetener and chocolate. Let sit for 5 minutes. Stir until completely mixed. Add the rest of the cream, vanilla and vodka. Cool in refrigerator for 1 hour. Process in ice cream maker according to manufacturers directions, adding nuts and marshmallows in the last minute. Place in container and freeze for 2 hours to harden.
