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.
Rocky Road Ice Cream
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.
