Mocha Almond Fudge

Happy National Ice Cream Month!!

July is here and summer is getting into full swing. It is my personal goal to post each day this month. The topics may vary but I have an idea that it will be mostly about the ice cream I am eating that day.  Yep you read it right I'm going to try and eat 31 days of ice cream this month.

I'm starting it off today by celebrating National Ice Cream month with my co-workers. I made a Mocha Almond Fudge ice cream that we all got to enjoy and a great break from the daily grind.

A little twist with Mocha Almond Fudge. I made it with Starbucks Via Instant Coffee - Bold Italian Roast. It turned out really well a great alternative if you don't have time to steep the coffee beans with you ice cream base.

2 cups of heavy cream
1 cup of milk
4 egg yolks
2/3 cups of Sugar
2 individual packets of Starbucks Via Italian Roast
8 tsp of dutch processed cocoa powder
1/2 cup of toasted sliced almonds

The pictures will probably be not as good as my normal post, I'll be shooting most of the pictures with my iPhone 4. But I think you will get the hint and hopefully it will make me a better food photographer.

I hope everyone takes part in National Ice Cream Month go out and enjoy some great quality ice cream. Support a local  ice cream parlor or even attempt to make some homemade ice cream.

Let me know if you have any ice cream questions or suggestion.

Thank so much for visiting and I'll see you again tomorrow!

Happy Ice Cream Month! Great tip, about using Via when you don't have time to brew your own coffee.

Happy Ice Cream Month to you, Bao! Mocha almond fudge is my family's all-time favorite flavor. Are all Vietnamese people coffee fiends?! Yes, I think so.
