Rocky Road Ice Cream


1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk (I used Eagle Brand)
1 tablespoon vanilla extract


First thing you want to do is in a medium size saucepan you want to slightly heat the sweetened condensed milk and the cocoa powder. You are not trying to cook it you are just heating it while you stir the cocoa together so that you get it all incorporated to a nice smooth chocolate sauce. Once it is incorporated pull it off the heat and set it aside to cool.
Add in the half and half, vanilla extract and heavy cream and stir well (I just used a regular spoon.) Once it is all mixed together stick your saucepan in the freezer while you chop the nuts and prepare the ice cream maker.
Chop the almonds. I did a rough chop and tried to chop them different ways so you get a different size bite each time.
Once you have the nuts chopped and your marshmallows measured out get the ice cream maker bowl out of the freezer and put it in the ice cream maker. Set it up so it is ready to use. Take your chocolate mixture out of the freezer and pour it into the ice cream maker. Turn the ice cream maker on. Set your timer for 35 minutes.
At the 35-minute mark add in your toppings and let it incorporate for another 5 minutes.
Once this is done scoop it out of the ice cream maker and into your freezer containers. Mine was definitely firm enough to serve right then. It would have been a little firmer then soft serve. I stuck it in the freezer for 2 hours and then I had this ice cream cone!


This is a traditional chocolate ice cream that has been turned into Rocky Road ice cream! Because what is better then adding some marshmallows and almonds to some smooth chocolae ice cream!
