Almond Joy (Toasted Coconut with Dark Chocolate and Almonds) Ice Cream
Like an Almond Joy candy bar, but better.
You can steep the toasted coconut in the dairy for as little as an hour to good results, but an overnight steep yields the best flavor. The longer the coconut steeps, the more dairy it'll soak up, so press firmly on the coconut when straining to get back as much liquid as possible.
