HEAT dulce de leche and coconut cream in medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring frequently, until heated through and completely smooth.

PLACE about 1/3 cup ice cream in serving bowl. Place 2 tablespoons warm sauce over ice cream. Sprinkle with 1 1/2 tablespoons coconut and about 2 teaspoons almonds.

NOTE: Cooled sauce may be stored covered in refrigerator for up to three days. Reheat sauce before serving.

COOK’S TIP: To toast coconut, spread unsweetened coconut shaving or sweetened shredded or flaked coconut in a large skillet. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently with a wooden spoon, just until coconut begins to turn golden. Remove from heat. Allow to cool before use.
