Ice Cream Hacks

1. Create unique flavor combinations by turning foods you already have in the pantry or refrigerator into ice cream toppings!

For a simple sweet and salty flavor combo try:

  • chopped nuts
  • cookie crumbles
  • cinnamon toast crunch (or any cereal really)
  • fresh fruit with pistachios 
  • pretzels
  • peanut butter

Get funky flavor combinations with:

  • wasabi peas
  • pickles
  • barbecue chips
  • bacon and molasses
  • french fries

2.  It can be especially difficult to scoop homemade ice cream. We recommend taking out the ice cream and allowing it to thaw out a bit while also soaking the ice cream scoop in hot water. This will ensure the most perfectly satisfying scoop of ice cream!

3. Zip up the entire tub of ice cream in a gallon freezer bag for storage. This hack prevents air from getting to the ice cream, keeping it fresh and safe from freezer burn. As a result, the ice cream will be softer and easier to scoop!

4. Whip up some cookie dough or a batch of brownies to make the ultimate home made dessert. 

Classic cookie and ice cream combos:

  • jumbo skillet cookie with a scoop of ice cream on top
  • ice cream sandwiches
  • cookie dough ice cream
  • cookies and ice cream milkshake

Blissful brownie + ice cream combos:

  • brownie and hot fudge sundae
  • double chocolate ice cream
  •  brownie ice cream cake
  • peanut butter brownie ice cream sandwich 

5. Limit the ice cream melting mess by filling the bottom of the ice cream cone with mini marshmallows! The marshmallows spongey texture will absorb the melting ice cream and makes for a sweet treat at the end of the cone.
