Not that we need an “official” holiday to indulge, but any excuse to visit an old-fashioned ice cream parlor is a good excuse! Or simply load up a bowl at home… enjoy au natural or loaded with your favorite toppings from nuts and hot fudge sauce to berries and whipped cream. Oh, and if Happy Hour is more your style, let’s make a float! For Family Friendly, simply omit the alcohol.
Thin Mint Chocolate Float
2 oz Vandermint Liquer, Bailey’s Irish Crème, Malibu Spiced Rum, or other favorite to mix with chocolate
2-3 crushed Thin Mint cookies
2 scoops favorite chocolate ice cream
Vanilla cream soda
Pour alcohol in glass; sprinkle with 1/3 cookie crumbs. Top with ice cream and 1/3 crumbs. Pour cream soda over to desired fullness & sprinkle with remaining crumbs.
Any other instructions needed? Wait! What??!!? Don’t we all hoard our favorite Girl Scout cookies in the freezer?
