Whether cooling down on a hot summer day or kicking it back in comfort with a pal, ice cream can be a sweet taste of nostalgia. But who says you can’t take your pint-sized happiness to new and exciting places? With a stand-mixer (or wooden spoon and elbow grease) you can create these ten delicious flavors using the ultimate beloved snack foods.
PB + J
Peanut Butter Cups + Strawberry Preserves + Vanilla Ice Cream
Shake up your average vanilla ice cream with a touch of this classic school lunch sandwich. Simply crush up your candy, mix in with the vanilla ice cream, and add a few spoonfuls of strawberry preserve.
Aloha Almond Joy!
Almond Joy + Toasted Slivered Almonds + Coconut Ice Cream
Close your eyes and imagine coconut trees as you enjoy this creative delight. Place a small amount of slivered almonds in a heavy ungreased skillet and stir until they are golden brown. Mix in with chunks of almond joy and coconut ice cream!
Sweet and Salty
M+M’s + Pretzel Chunks + Vanilla Ice Cream
Who says you have to decide between a salty or sweet snack? Crush a handful of pretzels and mix them with a small bag of M+M’s and some vanilla ice cream.
Crushed Twix Bar + Caramel Syrup + Chocolate Ice Cream
What’s crunchy, chocolately, with caramel all over? A dish of this sublime treat, that’s what! Cut up your Twix bar and add to a delicious selection of chocolate ice cream. Don’t forget to top with caramel!
Hershey Bar Bits + Mini Marshmallows + Graham Cracker+ Vanilla Ice
Crush up a classic Hershey Bar and mix it in with mini marshmallows and graham crackers for a cool alternative to this great outdoor culinary experience.
Pop Rocks + Swirled Sherbet
If you want to try something with a snap, mix in Pop Rocks with a swirled brand of sherbet. It’s colorful, tasty, and will leave a party in your mouth.
Crushed Malted Milk Balls + Chocolate Ice Cream
Simply delicious: this flavor capitalizes on the mantra that less is more. Put your malted milk balls in a bag and roll over them with a rolling pin for a double shot of chocolate decadence.
Peanut Lover’s Payday
Bits of Payday + Extra Peanuts + Vanilla Ice Cream
It’s okay to be a little nutty! (At least when it comes to ice cream!). Just make sure to leave some room for the vanilla ice cream!
Gummy’s Grand Adventure
Gummy Bears + Sprinkles + Strawberry Ice Cream
Don’t let your strawberry ice cream stand alone! Mix in the right amount of sprinkles and gummy bears for a flavor that makes you feel young again.
York Peppermint Patty + Mint Ice Cream
Cool and refreshing, there is very little not to like when it comes to a York Peppermint Patty crushed up in a little bit of refreshing mint ice cream.
