  1. Preheat oven or toaster oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place chopped almonds on a tray and toast in preheated oven until lightly colored and fragrant, 5 to 8 minutes. Let cool completely.
  3. Crumble the cookies into 1/2 inch pieces by wrapping in a tea towel and tapping lightly with a rolling pin or mallet. Do not crush into small pieces. Place crumbled cookies in a medium bowl and sprinkle with rum. Toss with almonds and chocolate chips. Set aside.
  4. In a large bowl, beat cream with an electric mixer until thickened. Pour in brandy and beat until soft peaks form. Spoon whipped cream over cookie mixture. In whipped cream bowl, now beat ice cream just until softened (with a flat whip, if available). Fold cookie and cream mixture into ice cream. Freeze until serving.

I made this for Thanksgiving and it was a hit! It's amazing how much alcohol you can taste considering there isn't much in it but I think that is an asset! I wouldn't change a thing about this recipe!

I made this for a dinner party of 16. Once this dessert was served all you could hear was the clinking of spoons against the bowls. It was quite a hit!

My friends and I love this recipe but I removed the chocolate chip and added grated chocolate the second time I made it.

I just made this on Saturday for my family dinner, and we all LOVED it! I did accidentally burn the almonds, so I did not have them to mix in, but it still was DELICIOUS! I recommend this recipe to anyone!

This is sooo delicious. My aunt always makes this for christmas and it is always a hit. We were having a party, so I decided I'd try to show my aunt up, and I succeeded spectacularly. The only problem I had was that it was very messy to make, but maybe that was just me. Thankyou for sharing. I will definitely make this again.
