Lots of leftover heavy cream- recipe ideas?

I have at least two or three pints of heavy cream leftover from making caramel sauce. I need recipe ideas to use the rest! Dessert preferably, and I live chocolate! I also may endup just making more caramel sauce. If so, any creative ideas for add ins or infusions?

Ice cream! The nice thing about ice cream is that it lasts up to a week - or more if stored properly. Maybe take a look at this week's contest submissions. Also I have made several ice creams from Joy of Cooking over the years and they were all really good. I usually made them without an ice cream maker; I'd freeze the custard in a large shallow pan, then blend frozen chunks in a food processor and refreeze.

Posset posset posset! So delicious and extremely easy. You can infuse all manner of aromatics & such into the cream, but here's a basic recipe:

Works great with passionfruits, teas, lemongrass, etc. but you need the acid from the citrus to set the cream.

Similar to ChefOno, chocolate cream pie with whipped cream on top.

Cream + dessert + chocolate = chocolate pots de crème (topped with whipped cream of course).
