Let’s Eat: Eggnog Float with Chocolate Ice Cream and Toasted Almonds

Kelly  |  December 20

So I don’t know about you, but I loovee eggnogg. I was at a friend’s house and  they happen to have eggnog and were serving chocolate ice cream for dessert. I decided to combine the two, and ended up with an outrageous float that tastes like chocolate dipped in butter and cream. I added a little bit of toasted almonds for some crunch, and bam, tasty-party-time-in-my-mouth. This may be my favorite quick and easy holiday delight… And if you’re feeling super festive you could add a splash of baileys or kahlua (I won’t tell).

To make it yourself:

- Two scopes of ice cream

- Pour the eggnog over the ice cream

- Toast some sliced almonds and sprinkle on top.

To toast the almonds: 350 degrees for 10 minutes or until you can smell the almonds, watch them closely, they’ll burn if you’re not paying attention.

Enjoy! You may hate me for telling you about this later…
