Ordinary ice cream just won't do for the holidays. So I make this cool and creamy amaretto ice cream featuring almonds and chocolate chips. Guests can't resist it!—Nancy Paul, Lakeview, Ohio


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


  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.
  2. Cool quickly by placing pan in a bowl of ice water; stir for 2 minutes. Stir in Amaretto and extract. Fold in whipped cream and toasted almonds. Pour into a 9-in. square pan; cover and freeze for 4 hours or until firm.
  3. In a microwave, melt chocolate chips; stir until smooth. Cut ice cream into squares. Drizzle each serving with chocolate; sprinkle with almonds.
