My favorite Christmas cookie that my mom makes every year is the coconut seven layer bar. So it's no surprise that is also my favorite ice cream flavor at Ben & Jerry's. They only serve it in the scoop shops, so I decided to try to re-create it on my own. I was pretty pleased with how it turned out, and you can be sure that you will find me with a bowl of it tonight in front of the Olympics opening ceremony. Hope you have a great weekend!
Coconut Seven Layer Bar Ice Cream
3/4 cup sugar
2 cups heavy cream
1 cup milk
1 can (15 oz) coconut cream, such as Coco Lopez
After the ice cream begins to stiffen, but before it is actually done, add 1/3 to 1/2 cup of each of the following:
semisweet chocolate chips
sweetened coconut flakes
graham cracker crumbs
Continue freezing until the ice cream is ready. Transfer to containers and place in the freezer until ready to serve.
