Blue Diamond Ice Cream Cake with Almonds on Top!

When growing up my mother would try to find time to make one of my and my brothers favorite desserts.

Hot Chocolate Cake with Vanilla Ice Cream and syrup.

My favorite!!!

She would take a chocolate box cake mix. Bake it accordingly in a 9x13 cake pan.

Then after dinner put a couple of scoops of yummy vanilla ice cream in the horizontally cut piece of hot cake, and then drizzle syrup on the top.

Ah the good 'ol days.

I wanted to try something different since I was able to try these new Blue Diamond almonds.

So I took and made it just like Momma always made it except I added a twist.

I took almonds and roughly chopped the Honey Roasted Vanilla and Honey Roasted Chipotle almonds.

I added whip cream to the top chocolate syrup, the almonds, and a cherry.

Not too much difference but it was certainly different!! And I would do it again.
Those Chipotle almond are a kick to it!

Thanks for reading!
