Toasted Almond Triangles Ice Cream Dessert

I remember my Mom making something similar to this when I was a kid. This recipe has been around and around. It is so good and so easy.  It uses simple ingredients and makes 16 servings.  Top with some homemade caramel sauce and man 'oh man watch the smiles and accolades!

Toasted Almond Triangle Ice Cream Dessert
Ingredients:

4 cups toasted rice cereal (such as Rice Krispies), slightly crushed
1 cup sliced, toasted almonds
1 cup toasted, sweetened flake coconut
1 cup packed light brown sugar
⅔ cup unsalted butter, melted
2 quarts vanilla ice cream, softened
 Prepared caramel sauce, optional

Directions:
  1. In a large bowl, mix together cereal, toasted almonds, toasted coconut, brown sugar and butter. 
  2. Press half of mixture into bottom of 13-by-9-by-2-inch baking dish and chill slightly. 
  3. Spoon softened ice cream over chilled crust and press evenly, using waxed paper and your hands. Top with remaining crumb mixture. Cover and freeze for at least 4 hours or overnight.
To serve, cut into 8 equal squares. Cut each square diagonally into triangles. I would recommend drizzling some caramel sauce on top. That makes it extra special!

I use a homemade caramel sauce I found on Pinterest. This recipe is so easy and so very good. I've included the sauce recipe below...

 
                                                                                         
Ingredients:

1 cup white sugar
6 T, unsalted butter
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

Instructions:

  1. Heat the sugar in a heavy saucepan, something like 2 to 3 quarts, on medium-high heat until melted, constantly stirring with a whisk or wooden spoon. If the sugar boils, stop stirring and swirl your pan.

  2. As soon as all the sugar has melted (it should be a medium amber color) add the butter to the pan and whisk until melted. (The sauce may bubble)

  3. As soon as the butter has melted take the pan off the heat, wait 3-4 seconds, and slowly pour in the heavy cream while whisking. The sauce will foam up. That's why you need a bigger saucepan.

  4. Whisk until smooth. Let cool in the pan for a couple of minutes then pour into a mason jar. Store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. Serve warm. You'll love it!


And that's all there is to it. This recipe is the most simple recipe for caramel sauce I've ever found. What a great compliment to the Toasted Almond Triangles...

I, like millions of people the world over love to collect "Pins" on Pinterest. Ove the years I have collected over 13,000 pins. Great recipes, great decorating ideas, great crafts and millions of other ideas for people interested in just about everything. I'm sure we all cut out favorite recipes out of magazines, or great ideas. But now we can store them all in one place on the internet. We have them at our fingertips anywhere or anytime...don't you just love it????

I thought I would have a little fun with all those posts. So I usually post about 6 pins that relate to my posts. You'll find them below.  You can also find more great dessert recipes on my "Dessert Board" on Pinterest. Just one click away for more awesome desserts.

You can also visit my "Other Boards" anytime. I spent a whole month organizing them completely. Like who exactly has time to do that? Well, I'm retired now and I'm doing all those things that we put aside during our working life. Now I can reach any of my pins anytime without having to think what the heck did I put that pin under??? LOL! I'm sure we have all done that. Anyways, if you would like to visit my "Other Boards", just click on my picture or the Pinterest logo and you will be redirected to those pins.
Below are a few pins that I thought went well with my post...

Writing about great recipes and fun crafts has been so much fun for me. I love cooking and have been crafting my whole life. I still remember making my first piggy bank out of a bleach bottle. I was so proud of that. I went on to be a cake decorator and a stain glass artist which I made my living at for almost 20 years. So now its time to give back by sharing things that I have dabbled in my whole life. I love to cook and try new recipes. Some are good and some not so good. So this blog has allowed me to share the recipes I think are great and the crafts that I have done over so many years. Until next time...
Always remember..."Life's short, eat dessert first!"
