The Clueless Chick: National Ice Cream Month

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. -

July is National Ice Cream Month and with all of the hot weather we've been having, it’s the perfect time to celebrate! Party planning expert Jennifer Durbin has some deliciously easy ice cream treats.

Sweet Treats and Special Favors

Ice Cream Cups: An easy, inexpensive and mess-free way to serve ice cream to little ones at your next party is to make your own ice cream cups using cupcake wrappers. A day or so before your party fill your cupcake pan with cupcake liners and simply place one scoop of ice cream in each cup and place the entire cupcake pan in the freezer. Once the scoops re-freeze you can transfer them to a jelly pan or any freezer safe container. TIP: If you have to travel with your ice cream cups simply put them in your cupcake holder or a foil roasting pan for easy storage in your cooler.

Ice Cream Cone Favors: You can even celebrate National Ice Cream Month in style without a single bite of ice cream with these ice cream favors! All you need are ice cream cones, bath salts and a colorful bath sponge. Fill each ice cream cone with bath salts, top with a bath sponge and then wrap your ice cream cone favor in a clear bag. Your party guests will love their calorie-free, stress reducing ice cream treat!

Just Add Ice Cream!

Crazy Cones: Have fun with your ice cream cones by adding toppings directly to the cone itself. All you will need is a little melted chocolate and your favorite ice cream toppings. Dip the top of each ice cream cone in the melted chocolate and role the cone in crushed nuts, coconut, mini chocolate chips, graham cracker crumbs or nothing at all.

Ice Cream Sundae Kit: There is no better way to thank your hostess, welcome new neighbors to town or wow a new love than to make them an Ice Cream Sundae Kit! Find a pretty box or grab a foil brownie pan and fill it with some ice cream sundae must haves like sugar cones, ice cream cups, chocolate or caramel sauce, a banana and your favorite toppings: nuts, marshmallows, sprinkles, coconut, chocolate chips

Top your ice cream sundae kit off with a gift tag that says ‘Just Add Ice Cream!” TIP: An ice cream sundae kit is perfect for date night at home or girls’ night in!

For all of Jennifer’s tips pick up your own copy of her Tips for the Clueless Chick books and follow the Clueless Chick on Facebook and Twitter.

Tune in next week as we celebrate Nation Hot Dog Day.
