Winding down the school year, the last couple of days are upon us. We have a kindergarten graduate among our littles and yesterday was the graduation. Today is the last day of school and then a busy summer ahead. This week is so busy but special days like today need to be celebrated.
I like shortcuts whenever possible, especially in the summer. The little hacks or tricks that make life easier and let you get to the fun faster are welcomed by this mom of many. After all, who does not want to get to the fun part faster, right?
Last weekend I was in Walmart and attended a demo where Blue Bunny premium vanilla bean ice cream was featured. It was absolutely delicious and we are already big Blue Bunny lovers! The vanilla ice cream gave me the inspiration for how to celebrate our little graduate’s big day! I thought, I would put together a make your own brownie sundae ice cream social at our house! What a great idea everyone will love and I could thank the Blue Bunny vanilla bean ice cream in my cart for the inspiration.
So the time to celebrate arrived and I want to share just how easy you can recreate the same Make Your Own Brownie Sundae Ice Cream Social with your family. You can bake a box of 13 by 9 pan size brownies of your choice or if you want to skip that, you can pick up some that are already made at your store or bakery. Then shop for some Blue Bunny vanilla bean ice cream or another of your Blue Bunny favorite flavors. I think the vanilla complements the brownie sundae so well! Next, you will want to have lots of yummy toppings on hand so that everyone can customize their sundae. I used mini candies, nuts, caramel sauce, hot fudge, marshmallow fluff, rainbow sprinkles, whipped cream, nuts, and of course what sundae is complete without the cherry on top.
I picked up a large vinyl graduation table cloth for our outdoor picnic table. The tablecloth makes cleanup a snap. Then I added some graduation inspired party plates and decorations to make our little guy feel special! I baked a pan of brownies the night before and cut them into squares to use for the sundae foundation. When everyone has their brownie, the fun begins! You can’t go wrong here, just let everyone add the toppings they like and enjoy!
If you are lucky enough to have left over ice cream the great Blue Bunny ice cream containers will keep it fresh to the last scoop. I love the Blue Bunny containers because the lid fits great and is easy to open and store. Everyone loved making their brownie sundae just the way they wanted. It was a lot of fun and so simple. The best part was the first bite, the creamy, cold vanilla ice cream with the rich chocolate brownie and toppings was delicious.
If you think the store demo that I attended sounds like something you might want to attend, check out this list of stores for the upcoming 4th of July demo where Blue Bunny will be teaming up with Chips Ahoy! If you would like to have an Ice Cream Social to celebrate any life event, it’s so easy. I hope that you try it and let me know how it goes, my family is already asking when we can do it again.
