This weekend we had an Ice Cream party with First Street Ice Cream (Smart and Final's corporate brand). For some reason when I go all out for a party, everyone I invite has something come up at the last minute and they can't come. Luckily, the kids and I still were excited about the party.
We set the party up, Ice Cream Sundae Bar style with a large tub of Neapolitan First Street Ice Cream. This tub was large for less than $6, which is great for any ice cream party because it's so large and inexpensive!
The toppings included:
First Street Nuts
Oreo pieces (Oreos I chopped up)
First Street vanilla wafers
First Street marshmallows
First Street maraschino cherries
First Street Coconut (shredded)
First Street confetti sprinkles
First Street dark chocolate sprinkles
We had Shasta cream soda and rootbeer for floats along with First Street sugar cones, First Street colored ice cream cones for the sundae bar as well.
We put First Street fudge bars in ice along with the First Street whip cream and First Street Moosetracks ice cream *yum*.
The special treat we had at our Ice Cream party was the Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich.
Smart and Final was kind enough to send a few goodies for our Ice Cream party and unfortunately, the chocolate chips melted during their travel. But even after they hardened into one block, I knew I could still put them to good use. I put the block in my food processor and chopped it up into chunks!
2 cups of flour
1/2 cup butter or margarine
3/4 cup of granulated sugar
3/4 cup of brown sugar (packed)
1 tablespoon of vanilla
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 package of First Street Chocolate Chips
1/4 teaspoon of salt
First Street Ice Cream (we used Neapolitan)
Cream together sugars, eggs and butter/margarine. Add flour and baking soda, salt and Vanilla. Fold in the chocolate chips. Scoop approx 1.5 inch balls onto cookie sheet.
Bake for approx 10 minutes at 355 degrees. Let cool completely before serving. If they are soft, leave them out to harden a bit overnight. Scoop ice cream on bottom of one cookie, topping with another. Have kids put on toppings such as whip cream, chocolate sauce, maraschino cherries etc.
Here is Adrienne's creation. It has whip cream, Oreo pieces, Reese's Pieces and a maraschino cherry on top.
Tyler's creation consists of Reese's pieces, whip cream and a maraschino cherry on top.
I enjoyed a yummy float
I also made triple chocolate malted shakes!
First Street Chocolate Ice Cream (approx 4-5 large scoops)
Ovaltine malted mix (5 tablespoons)
Swiss Miss Hot Chocolate mixes (2 packages)
2 cups of milk
Mix ingredients in blender, enjoy!
(makes approx. two 8 ounce glasses)
So what if you want to make a sundae for later or you want to bring some to a neighbor who is feeling ill and couldn't make it?
We loaded a sundae into a bowl that we could give away. We got a 50 pack of these Styrofoam bowls and a 50 pack of matching lids for between $5 and $6 total! These are great to freeze for later, or use them for soups, fruit etc in lunch boxes.
Our neighbor appreciated this, she couldn't come because she was sick or else I would have taken a photo of her :).
Who knew First Street had so many delicious goodies for Ice Cream? Also, prices are very reasonable!
