July is National Ice Cream Month. You know what that means, don't you? Ice cream every day!! Or as many days as your waistline allows you. Afterall, what is better on a hot, humid, summer day than a nice cool treat?!! And so far, this month has definitely been hot and humid and summer.
I was reading a news article online and came across something that I thought would be cute to kick off celebrating with ice cream. It's a recipe for a different kind of Turtle Sundae.
Isn't he cute?
Here's the recipe, courtesy of Blue Bunny Ice Cream
- 4, 3½-inch waffle bowls
- 5 cups Blue Bunny Premium Homemade Turtle Sundae Ice Cream
- 16 chocolate Turtle candies
- Assorted candy, for facial features
- 1 1.5-ounce package chocolate covered crisp wafer stick candy, such as Pepperidge Farm Pirouettes
Form four scoops of ice cream and set aside. Fill each waffle bowl with remaining ice cream. Place each waffle bowl ice cream side down on an individual dessert plate. Place each of the four ice cream scoops that were set aside against each waffle bowl for the turtles' heads.
Arrange four turtle candy pieces partially under the bottom of each waffle bowl to form the turtles' legs. Press assorted candy pieces into ice cream scoops for eyes and mouth. Place one chocolate wafer stick partially under waffle bowl for tail. Serve immediately. (Makes 4 servings)
How cute for a summer afternoon party...or just make one for a special treat just for you!
Celebrate the days of summer with a cool, sweet treat!!
