Almond Ice Cream Terrine with Bittersweet Chocolate Truffles and Raspberry Sauce
Oh yeah, baby. You know what I like. Long wordy recipe titles.
This was my first attempt at an ice cream terrine. I first became interested in terrines about 3 years ago, when I made my first ice cream bombe. I've been collecting recipes ever since, and I've been holding on to this one for quite a while. I think they are awesome! This one is especially cool because there are chocolate truffles hidden inside and when you slice it, they look like cool brown polka dots!
I was only a little disappointed with the ice cream recipe, however, only because it calls for a cup of coarsely chopped almonds when it should have been no more than 1/2 cup. There were just too many nuts. So I will make that adjustment some day when I feel like making it again. I think next time I might try a white chocolate terrine, maybe with some almonds (1/4 cup only) and the truffles and raspberry sauce OF COURSE!
