Start the month off with something sweet and whip up these Rocky Road Ice Cream Bars from our friends at Forager Project!

Ingredients:
1/2 cup Forager Project Butter
1 cup Chocolate Os Cereal
Kosher salt
1/2 cup raw almonds
1 pint Forager Project Bittersweet Chocolate Ice Cream
1/2 cup vegan mini marshmallows
1 tbsp coconut oil
2 tbsp Forager Project Cashewmilk
1 tbsp maple syrup
2 tbsp cocoa powder

Directions:
1. Start by melting your butter in a skillet over medium heat. Set aside once melted.

2. As the butter heats up, line a 7-by-11 inch pan with parchment paper, leaving some extra paper hanging over the side of the pan.

3. In a food processor or blender, combine the cereal and a pinch of salt and blend until finely ground.

4. Next, add the butter and blend more.

5. Add the moist crumbs to the parchment-covered pan and pack the crust into an even layer across the bottom.

6. Place in the freezer for 30 to 45 minutes. The crust should be firm to the touch.

7. While the crust chills, add your almonds and a pinch of salt to the melted butter skillet and toast for three to five minutes. Toss frequently.

8. As the almonds cool, mix the coconut oil, Forager Project Cashewmilk, maple syrup, and cocoa powder in a separate skillet. Stir constantly over medium heat until everything is thoroughly combined. Set aside to cool.

9. Take your ice cream out of the freezer and allow it to sit for about five minutes or until it is easy to scoop. Spread the ice cream out all over the crust using a spatula to create an even layer of creamy goodness.

10. Top with the toasted almonds and marshmallows.

11. Finally, drizzle with your homemade chocolate sauce.

12. Cover with plastic wrap before setting the entire pan in the fridge for at least two hours.

13. Remove from the pan and place on a cutting board before slicing into squares or bars and serving immediately. Bon appétit!
