Directions

  1. Mix heavy cream, whole milk, sugar, espresso, and chocolate syrup in a bowl until sugar is dissolved. Refrigerate until chilled.
  2. Pour the chilled mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's directions until it reaches "soft-serve" consistency. Stir in almonds and dark chocolate. Serve soft ice cream or transfer ice cream to a one- or two-quart lidded plastic container; cover surface with plastic wrap and seal. For best results, ice cream should ripen in the freezer for at least 2 hours or overnight.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • If possible, do not add the nut and chocolate mixture until the end of the ice-cream process as it becomes thicker. This allows the solids to mix throughout the ice-cream without collecting in the bottom. Otherwise, you may save them as a topping when you're ready to serve. If you prefer a strong espresso flavor, reduce milk to 1-1/4 cups and add in one more shot of espresso. This is a good dessert if you're having a beef tenderloin or steak main course!

I wanted to love this recipe, but it was the first treat I made in my ice cream maker that didn't turn out. I've never had this problem before. After a spin through the ice cream maker according to the manufacturer's directions (30 min.), it was just as soupy as when it was poured in. So I transferred it to a stainless steel bowl and decided I would put it in the freezer and stir it periodically, adding the nuts and chocolate bits when thick enough. After a few hours, no change. When I was getting ready for bed, I checked one last time for the night and it had some ice crystals so I added the nuts and chocolate bits. The next morning, it was finally in a better state. The thing is, the texture was very crystal-y and it melted VERY quickly once served. It's too bad because the flavors are fantastic, but the crystal-y texture and time to solidify just stink. Not worth making again. What a shame.

This was delicious! I made this for an ice cream social and won first prize with this recipe. I didn't have espresso so I used strong, brewed coffee. This recipe doubled is perfect for a 4 quart ice cream maker.

This was my 1st attempt and it turned out really good! I mixed it in my KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker for 20 minutes and it thickened up and filled it up to the brim. I scooped it out and put them in dishes that went straight into the freezer...to enjoy tonight. :) Oh...I did not add the almonds nor the chocolate pieces for my 1st attempt. My husband isn't fond of "things" in his ice cream. But I anticipate adding some dark chocolate slices in it for me another time. :)
