Mounds Bar Ice Cream

Warmer temperatures outside, windows open and the music from the neighborhood ice cream truck made me think of this idea for ice cream.  I’ve had an ice cream drink made out of various liqueurs to taste like a Mounds bar but wanted to try making an ice cream.  The chocolate took over the coconut flavor so I added some coconut into the ice cream.  If you prefer an Almond Joy, just chop up some almonds or use almond slivers to add into your ice cream when it’s in the machine.



 
Mounds Bar Ice Cream
 
1 pint whipping cream
1 13.5 oz can coconut milk
¾ cup sugar
¼ tsp salt
2 tbsp cocoa powder
4 oz Ghiradelli 60# Cacao Bittersweet
1 cup coconut
1 tsp vanilla
 

In a large saucepan, combine the cream, coconut milk, sugar, salt, cocoa powder and chocolate. Stir over low heat until the sugar dissolves.  Remove from heat, cool and place in the refrigerator for a couple hours.  When chilled, add in vanilla and coconut.  Place in your ice cream maker and run per manufacturer's directions.
