Danish Christmas Ice Cream

January 25, 2012

This is something Mormor Karin made when I was growing up – a recipe from Sweden (possibly from Vecko Journalen – a Swedish magazine, subscription that Mormor received from her mother). Make room in the freezer for a bowl to chill this.

Svgs 6-8

  • Half gallon of the best vanilla ice cream (minus 1 Cup)
  • 1 C whipped cream (3 dl)
  • 1 C chpd (but not too fine) dark chocolate (Callebaut) – semi-sweet?
  • 3/4 C chpd Raisins (soaked overnight in Grand Marnier)
  • 1 C ground blanched almonds (ground almond meal from Trader Joes)

Blend half of ice cream with raisins, chocolate and almonds. Stir until well blended. Mix in rest of ice cream (fast so it doesn’t melt too much).

Fold in whipped cream.

Transfer to a serving bowl or mold to put in freezer. Freeze 4-5 hours.
