Sweet Candy Ice Cream Ideas

Sweet summertime is here and that means lots and lots of ice cream! This summer, why not take your creamy frozen treats up a notch? How so, you may wonder? With candy ice cream toppings and other fun additions! Check out these fun ice cream and candy pairings and deliciously frozen ideas:

Smores-style ice cream: The only way to make this campfire favorite ever more enticing? Ice cream-ifying it! Create a deconstructed smores-style ice cream treat by spooning marshmallow topping onto a few scoops of chocolate ice cream. Sprinkle with crushed graham crackers and voila! Smores ice cream!

Salted caramel pretzel ice cream: All you need for this enticing treat is vanilla ice cream, caramel sauce, and salted pretzels. The sweetness of the caramel pairs fantastically well with the salted pretzels, create that salty-sweet taste that we know you love.

Monster Ice Cream: Here’s a take on the classic monster cookie. Vanilla ice cream is the perfect base for the sweet toppings in this recipe. Simply sprinkle a scoop of vanilla with chopped nuts, mini M&Ms, and chopped Reese’s peanut butter cups for a full-of-flavor chilly treat!

Whoppers Ice Cream: Love the taste and texture of these sweet little malted milk balls? All you need is malted milk powder! Sprinkle a spoonful or two atop a scoop of your favorite flavor. To mimic Whoppers, we suggest using chocolate ice cream!

“Snickers” Ice Cream: Sure, you can add chopped snickers to the top of your ice cream, but why not infuse the flavors of a snickers bar throughout the entire scoop? Spoon caramel sauce and hot fudge on top of a scoop of ice cream (we suggest vanilla or peanut butter), and simply sprinkle on some chopped peanuts and you’ve got a cone-full of snickers!

The Almond Joy: Coconut pairs perfectly with summer, don’t you think? Sprinkle shredded coconut and chopped almonds overtop a scoop of chocolate for a fun frozen twist on the Almond Joy!

Celebrate the start of summer with one of these delicious candy-inspired ice cream treats. Let us know which one is your favorite!
