I am determined to make things a bit different this year and just be prepared with it comes to every little detailed. Crossing my fingers that I can make this come true! Usually my parties start with the food! And more specifically the desserts! Since it's summer those usually include some sort of frozen treat.
gelato. I know. Where have I been living? If you haven't tried it yet, you haven't lived! I got my hands on some Breyers Gelato Induldgences and knew that instant I would be switching up my typical ice cream with it. It's unbelievably creamy and ultra decadent! Breyers has some pretty fantastic new flavors. Mine favorite is the Chocolate Caramel pictured below.
To help me be a little prepared I plan on pre-scooping out my gelato. That way I won't be stuck holding a sticky scoop in the hot summer sun and the gelato is melting down my arm! This trick also works for ice cream as well.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Quickly scoop out full scoops of gelato and place evenly apart on the parchment.
- Place baking sheet into the freezer and chill until ready to serve.
Mini Magnum Bars. And let me just say...I got into a little trouble with these because I kept going back to the freezer to get one more, and one more! They have a new Double Chocolate version that is absolutely heavenly!!! Let's just say that the words Belgium, chocolate, silky, chocolatey sauce, chocolatey coating go really well together!
- Fill a large platter (preferably with sides) with ice.
- Unwrap each Mini Magnum Bar and place onto the ice.
Whatever you decide to serve at your summer parties, join me in the fight of being prepared and not running around last minute! This way, we will have more time to enjoy our friends company and eat a frozen treat (or three!).
