Our answer

Nigella's Dime Bar Ice Cream (from NIGELLA SUMMER) contains shards of Dime bars in a vanilla base. Dime bars are thin bars of almond-studded caramel that are coated with milk chocolate. Since the recipe was written, the candy has been re-named Diam bar. It is Swedish in origin but now sold around the world.

Diam bars can be bought on-line in Australia, or if you live near an IKEA store then they are usually found in the food section of these stores. You could use a bar or the equivalent weight of the smaller, individually wrapped candies. The closest equivalent to a Diam is probaly a Skor bar. Otherwise a Heath bar could also be used, though this is advertised as English toffee rather than butter caramel. Neither of these bars contain almonds.
