July is National Ice Cream Month—and why wouldn’t it be? Can you think of a better month to chill out with a heaping bowl of the sweet and creamy dessert? I mean, sure, August would be fine, too, but who wants to wait another month?
So, to celebrate the occasion, we’re pulling out some of our favorite ice cream-related recipes, plus a few new ones—and this year we’ve got a couple of really cool ice-creamy beverages.
An amazing chocolate malted milkshake made with rich dark chocolate…
…and a wickedly wonderful coffee ice cream frappe made with chocolate-covered coffee beans and Kahlua liqueur.
Plus, we have a new recipe for decadent dark chocolate sauce…
…an incredible tart key lime pie ice cream creation
…and a perfectly peachy ice cream dessert made with juicy fresh peaches.
