It’s a holiday weekend here in the U.S., so we are all about the red, white, and blue to celebrate Independence Day! And what better way to celebrate than with family and ice cream? That pretty much sounds perfect to me (and to the baby in my belly!) – and fitting, since July is National Ice Cream Month! We’re adding a little red, white, and blue to our ice cream to make some Patriotic Ice Cream Cones, perfect for the 4th of July. Or anytime, if I’m being honest. ;)
We’re big on ice cream in our house, and a little particular about what we buy! I like the good stuff. Kemps has these new flavors that are soooo good. We tried Mint Cow Tracks, Caramel Cow Tracks, and Caramel Fudge Cow Tracks.
Oh. My. Goodness. All the heart eyes for these flavors! I maaaay have had two bowls after coming home from the grocery store. Maybe.
The kids and I made used our Kemps ice cream to make patriots ice cream cones, which were quick and easy. And with different colored sprinkles, they’d be perfect for any holiday or special occasion.
- chocolate melting wafers
- ice cream cones
- red, white, and blue sprinkles (or whatever color you want to use!)
- two small bowls
- Kemps Ice Cream
1.Melt the chocolate in a shallow bowl according to the package instructions. Pour some sprinkles into another shallow bowl.
2. Coat the edges of the ice cream cone with melted chocolate. I found it best to leave it in there for a minute and coat it quite thoroughly.
Oooohhh, looking so good already, right??
4. Fill up the cones with your Kemps ice cream! Use a small spoon to push it into the cone so that you don’t knock the sprinkles off.
These cones are filled with Caramel Chocolate Cow Tracks and Caramel Chocolate Cow Tracks …. SO yummy!
And then EAT IT UP!
The boys were SO excited to eat these. And honestly, it was really hard to choose a favorite flavor. Though if I’m forced to choose, the Mint Cow Tracks is my pick.
This is pretty much the perfect way to celebrate the 4th of July – eating ice cream together!
