We all love to serve ice cream at birthday parties and summer gatherings, but sometimes it’s really difficult to serve quickly and before it melts. These two ideas from Country Living are perfect ways to simplify the sundae.
For the cones, they write “Dressing up a dozen cones before the party starts streamlines the dessert-bar process. To make these treats – think of them as environmentally friendly bowls and toppings all in one – just dip each cone in melted white or milk chocolate and roll in tiny marshmallows, coconut flakes, chopped nuts, crushed cookies, or candy chips. Set out a selection of ice cream flavors chilled in a tub of ice, and dessert is done – without your taking a single order.” All I would add is to refreeze them on a platter once decorated so that they are good and set before you serve them in the hot summer sun.
For the ice cream bowls served in a chilled tub, they share their Praline Ice Cream recipe. Yum!
