Skor and Toasted Almond Coffee Ice Cream - for Electric Machine

Total Time

I fell in love with the combos of coffee ice cream, Skor and toasted almonds on my first visit to Cold Stone Creamery. Seeing as the closest one to me is 8 hours away - I had to duplicate it on my own. It's been a big hit with everyone - coffee lover or not!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Beat eggs and sugar with whisk or electric mixer until thick and cream-colored.
  2. Add milk, cream, vanilla and dissolved instant coffee.
  3. Mix well.
  4. This can be refrigerated or used immediately.
  5. Pour into ice cream maker as per manufacturer's instructions.
  6. Break Skor bars into small to bite-sized chunks – not too small or they will all sink to the bottom.
  7. Use your personal preference on amount.
  8. Toast almonds lightly in oven- they will burn fast, so keep a close eye on them.
  9. Bake at apx 325 for 5 minutes- flip after 2 minutes.
  10. Keep your eyes on them!
  11. Again- use your personal preference as to how much almond you would prefer.
  12. After frozen, turn ice cream into freezer-safe container.
  13. All machines are different so freezing time will vary.
  14. Fold in Skor and almonds – alternately you can add Skor and almonds to ice cream machine with 2-3 minutes left of freeze time.
  15. Almonds may also be left out and added on top of ice cream when eating.
  16. Drizzle caramel sundae sauce on ice cream prior to serving.
  17. For extra coffee flavour and sweetness you could add a small amount (2-3 tsp) of coffee syrup to ice cream base prior to freezing.

Made this today and it is amazing. I did not put the almonds in the ice cream but reserved them for the top. Tastes better than cold stone. It's in the freezer as it type hardening up so I can serve as dessert tonight. Thanks for the great recipe. This one is a keeper!!!!

Awesome recipe..I used this as a coffee ice cream recipe only so I omitted the candy bars and almonds and I used 2 Tablespoons Coffee to 1 1/2 teaspoon of water. It came out perfectly perfect and had an AWESOME flavor...I love the Blue Bell Coffee ice cream but its so outrageously priced...with this recipe I will never have to buy it again! thanks!
