All kids love sprinkles on their ice cream. Here is a homemade one you will even enjoy. No preservatives and you know what is in it.
- 1/3 almonds, with skins, finely chopped
- 1 cup sweeted flaked coconut
- 3 1/2 oz. fine quality bittersweet chocolate (not unsweetened) OR
- 2/3 cup semisweet chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Toast the almonds on a baking sheet for about 10 minutes then transfer to a bowl.
Toast the coconut on a baking sheet, stirring until it becomes golden (8-10 minutes) and remove from the oven.
Sprinkle the almonds, chocolate and a generous pinch of salt over the coconut and let alone for about 5 minutes, until the chocolate has melted. Now toss to coat everything. With a rubber spatula, transfer this out on a parchment lined tray and let cool for about 1 – 2 hours.
Loosen with a spatula and sprinkle this over the cones or bowl of ice cream. YUMMY
