Ice Cream Party and Ice Cream Recipe #4 Recipe
At the beginning of the summer my children each wrote a wish list of things to do over the summer. My littlest guy requested a Ice cream Party. When I knew we were having another family over for dinner I decided to give him his party!!
I really talked it up saying we would have make your own sundaes and just bought a few toppings and sauces. I also bought vanilla ice cream. I decided to make the adults homemade ice cream as a treat. Triple Chocolate Ice Cream....
I even let the kids have a little bit...I made it the morning of and it was a little soft at serving time but delicious.
Even the adults took part in the build your own party...we are all young at heart.
