Throw an Ice Cream Sundae Party This Summer!
Looking for fun things to do with your kids this summer? How about throwing an ice cream sundae party? Kids (and adults too) will love making their own homemade ice cream treats! Nothing beats the summer heat quite like a party involving ice cream.
The beauty of hosting an ice cream social is that you can make it as simple or as elaborate as you please. Ice cream socials can be the perfect party for children as well as adults. It’s little to no set up, just throw a disposable table cloth in a cheery summer print over a table and you’re good to go!
So here is the scoop:
Flavors: Always have the classics, vanilla and chocolate ice cream, on hand. Depending on the age range of your partygoers, you can also include other flavors too. For kids, Neapolitan or a sherbet are always popular flavors. If you are hosting an adult ice cream party, offer a few daring ice cream flavors such as salted caramel or strawberry balsamic ice cream.
Tip: You can also go the extra mile and let your guests make their own ice cream with the Play and Freeze Ice Cream Maker from Cook Dazzle! Kids love this shaking, rolling, and passing around this Ice Cream Ball to make a delicious frozen treat! The Mega 1 Quart Ice Cream Maker is a great activity for your ice cream social.
Toppings: Go crazy with the toppings! You can offer hot fudge, caramel sauce, whip cream, nuts, sprinkles, anything goes!
