You know the movie, "Up?"  The old man and the little boy scout end up at Fenton's Ice Creamery at the end of the movie.  That's a real place down in Berkley and we LOVE it!  My favorite thing to order is the toasted almond ice cream with jersey topping (malt, whipped cream, and chocolate sauce) and a side order of caramel.  Sooo yummy!  Well, Fenton's is obviously quite the drive from our little house so the kids and I figured out a recipe for toasted almond ice cream.  And let me tell was delicious!  The kids had a blast using the ice cream maker and we all had fun devouring our treat.

Truly this stuff tasted just like Fentons toasted almond. The Jersy we'd perfected some time ago, and the caramel sauce will need a tweak or two to get the consistency right.

Usually it's me that "ruins" a good treat by learning how to make it at home. Half the fun being the going and getting it. But this time it was Sarah. And I don't think she minds cause Fentons is quite a trip.

The Jersy is easy though usually it's to taste so I'm guessing on measurements:

Whip heavy cream ~1cup
Malt ~2tbs
Chocolate Syrup ~till sweet enough

Here's a link to for the ice cream recipe. Next time I'll double it as it only made a half batch for my big ice cream maker.

We got it when we got married. It's nothing fancy...probably came from target or something like that :)
