Ingredients
  Slivered blanched almonds 4 Ounce (1 Can)
  Butter/Margarine 1 Tablespoon
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Vanilla ice cream 1 Quart
  Coffee ice cream 1 Pint
  Strawberry ice cream 1 Pint
  Heavy cream 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Sugar 2 Tablespoon
  Red food coloring 3 Drop (Adjust Quantity As Needed)
Directions

1. Spread almonds in a large, shallow, baking pan. Heat in moderate oven (350°) 10 minutes, or until lightly toasted; set aside a few for garnish, if you wish, then toss remaining nuts with butter or margarine and salt to coat evenly. Cool; chop coarsely.
2. Line an 8-cup bowl with foil or waxed paper, allowing a 2-inch overhang.
3. Spoon vanilla ice cream into a medium-size bowl; stir to soften, then stir in the chopped almonds, and pack into lined bowl, shaping around edge of bowl to leave a hollow in middle.
4. Repeat with coffee ice cream to make a middle layer, then use strawberry ice cream to fill center. Smooth the top even; fold foil or waxed paper over the top to cover. Freeze until just before serving time.
5. Beat cream with sugar and a few drops food coloring until stiff in a medium-size bowl.
6. Peel the paper from top of the ice-cream mold; invert onto a serving plate; lift off the bowl and peel off paper. Frost the mold with the tinted whipped cream; garnish with reserved almonds. Cut mold into wedges with thin, sharp-blade knife. Serve immediately.
