Ingredients

  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk

  • 1/4 cup Amaretto
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted
  • 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, beat cream until stiff peaks form; set aside. In a small saucepan, heat milk to 175°, stirring constantly. Whisk a small amount of the hot mixture into egg yolks. Return all to the pan, whisking constantly. Cook and stir over low heat until mixture reaches at least 160° and coats the back of a metal spoon. Remove from the heat.
