Did you hear?!
…[crickets]…
Today is February 2nd, and Phil didn’t see his shadow! it’s National Heavenly Hash Day
As a youngster, one of my favorite ice creams was heavenly hash — chocolate ice cream with almonds, chocolate pieces, and a marshmallow swirl.  It’s been years since I last enjoyed the ice cream, so I decided to a construct a heavenly hash ice cream cookie to celebrate!

Here we’ve got our star ingredients: dark chocolate ice cream, marshmallow fluff, mini Hershey’s kisses, and sliced almonds.  I was a little nervous about throwing so many out-of-the-box ingredients into cookie a cookie dough, but sure enough, it all worked out.  
 Don’t you just love when that happens?

Oh, and just look at this cookie dough!  Does it not look exactly like heavenly hash ice cream?! 
These cookies are super soft, almost cake-like.  Perfect for dressing up however you like.  A drizzle of marshmallow topping, a scoop of ice cream… possibilities are endless, folks!
