Fourth of July is just about a week away and we our getting so excited! Our family heads to Telluride Colorado to celebrate so we enjoyed our little 4th of July Ice Cream Bar a little early! And lucky enough I have partnered with Blue Bunny Ice Cream to bring this to you!



When I was at Walmart they have a fun little station set up where they were giving samples of their Vanilla Ice Cream along with some nectarines for their fun Suns Out Spoons Out campaign! They also have a fun campaign with Chips Ahoy so be on the look out at your neighborhood Walmart.






























My daughter and I loved the pairing! I then picked up a few flavors of Blue Bunny Ice Cream and 2 different Ice Cream novelty items on Isle 28 and on the end cap and then went home and had some fun with my kids!


So what we did it make 4 different fun variations for our Blue Bunny 4th of July Ice Cream Bar.

First up:
Festive Cones
Ingredients:
Waffle cones and Bowls
Karo Syrup
Festive Sprinkles
Blue Bunny Ice Cream

Pour about 1/4 cup of karo syrup on a plate on another plate pour some sprinkles down on a different plate. Then take the cones and waffle bowls and dip the rim of it in the Karo syrup then dip the rim into the sprinkles. Use your hand to make sure that the sprinkles cover the Karo syrup entirely. Then place a scoop of ice cream in the cone and enjoy!


Next up:
Festive Ice Cream Sundaes
Festive Waffle Bowls (instructions above)
Bananas, sliced
Strawberries, sliced
Blueberry Ice Cream Topping
Whipped Cream
Sprinkles
Festive flags, Baseballs, Decor

Grab the waffle bowl and place strawberries and bananas in the bottom. Top with ice cream. Then drizzle blueberry ice cream topping over top. Top with whipped cream, sprinkles, and decorations.


Next Up:
Festive Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Sandwiches
Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies
Sprinkles

Take a chocolate chip cookie then place a large scoop of ice cream on the inside of it. Then top with another chocolate chip cookie to create a cookie ice cream sandwich. Then roll the sides with sprinkles


Last:
Red, White & Blue Ice Cream Shots
Containers
Whipped Cream
Sprinkles
Straws

Take the Blue Bunny Vanilla Ice Cream and let sit out for a few minutes.
Then take 1/3 out and put in a container and add red food coloring. Stir well and add more red food coloring until it is at the right color. Then take another 1/3 out and put it in another container and add blue food coloring. Stir really well. Grab the containers and fill the bottom third of the container with blue ice cream. Then the next third with white ice cream. Then the last third with red ice cream. Put the containers back in the freezer until you are ready to serve. Once you are ready to serve top with whipped cream and sprinkles. Then you can add a little milk and make it a milkshake and put a festive straw in it!


Put them all together and you have a fun and festive 4th of July Ice Cream Bar!
