My all time favourite indulgence is a candy coated in chocolate called Almond Roca. I literally swoon whenever I am given a box. I never buy them as I have no control but when I pass them in a store I stop and smile as if a secret lover beckons.
I was out to dinner the other night in Camps Bay when the dessert menu was offered. The friends I was with insisted we rather walk upstairs and taste an ice cream called Addiction. Rarely had I seen such enthusiasm displayed for anything and couldn’t wait to sample it.
One taste had me hooked. Immediately I identified what hid beneath the creamy layers of vanilla. Chopped pieces of Almond Roca. Whoever thought up this combination needs an award. The name says it all.
Haagen- Dazs and Lindt is the winning combo but any other brand will work as well.
- Vanilla Ice cream
- 1 box Almond Roca, roughly chopped
- 1 slab white chocolate, roughly chopped
Soften ice cream slightly. Fold in Almond Roca and white chocolate. Place in Freezer.
