Fran’s Almond Gold Bar

As if all your favorites toppings just exploded onto vanilla ice cream. One of the first chocolatiers in the country, the woman who put salted caramel on the map, revered confectioner to the stars, Fran Bigelow (of Fran’s) is kind of a big deal. But she keeps it real. We were thrilled to meet her and turn her handmade gourmet candy bars into our version of an ice cream her friends used to make for her in the `80s. Think salted vanilla ice cream with generous drizzles of caramel, chocolate, and pieces of the best darn toasted-almond-and-burnt-caramel chocolate bar you’ve ever had.
