If you can see my blog, great, disregard this part and skip to the next paragraph. If you can’t see this, well, I should just stop typing because YOU CAN’T SEE THIS. But, maybe you have the patience to stick out the incredibly slow loading time. Thank you! I’m working on the the blogs issues today. Hopefully it will be back up to full speed soon. In the meantime, I have ice cream for you (again). Because it’s one of my main food groups and because it’s summer and we all need more ice cream on hot summer days.
Rocky road ice cream has always been categorized in my brain as an old man’s flavor. It’s the ice cream your grandpa orders when you were a kid and he’d take you out for ice cream. It’s the ice cream you can find stashed in the back of his freezer. I’m not entirly sure why I think of it this way… But I do. I don’t even know if my grandpas liked rocky road… so really, I have ZERO idea why this is my view of the classic ice cream flavor.
Given how it’s been categorized in my brain, I’ve never really been into rocky road. Um, first, I’ma girl. Second, I only just turned 30, so I don’t really fit the ‘old man’ bill. HOWEVER (because I’m super open minded), I decided to finally give rocky road a try. Them old men, they know a good thing when they see it! This is some goooood stuff! Well, a good homemade rocky road is good (store-bought? Meh, not so much). One with homemade caramel marshmallows, and LOTS of them! And toasted almonds, all swirled in a rich chocolate custard (which can be used without mix ins, or with whatever other mix ins you want). See, just the description alone sounds amazing. And the taste, ya, it IS amazing!
