An Ice Cream Social with Breyers

A couple of months ago Breyers reached out to me regarding their new line of ice cream sundae toppings. Would we like to test some out during their big debut of eight flavors? What a delicious offer. And a perfect excuse to throw a little spring ice cream social for Liv and her friends.

We picked a Saturday in late May and planned a get together around the arrival of this box (how fun is that packaging) which housed the various ice cream toppings:

On the day of the party, I pulled out my favorite fabric flags that I keep around for birthday parties and baby showers and made a couple of wooden block stands (a la this trick) for a festive and simple display.

It’s peony season, my favorite flower season.

When the kids arrived, we used mini patterned paper cups (left over from Liv’s 2nd birthday) to pass around scoops of vanilla ice cream. Then we popped open our tester toppings and tried them all out.

The new line includes strawberry, cherry and mixed berry fruit toppings, and caramel, chocolate and hot fudge (my favorite) sauces. Plus chocolate and rainbow sprinkles (Liv’s favorite).

We added a few healthy ice cream toppings such as strawberries, peaches and granola for the kiddies as well.

Still the sugar rush was a superb one!!

Made for an awesome ice cream social though! And we parents helped to make up the ice cream difference.

The parents agreed that the new squeeze pouches for the chocolate and caramel sauces were very genius. No sticky jars or sticky fingers. None of the toppings include high fructose corn syrup and the fruit purees are made with the real deal.

Using Oh Happy Day’s paper hat tutorial, some of the kids decorated little party hats for the ice cream social as well.

Since our crowd was mostly 2-3 year olds, the hats were near finished before the party with the exception of polka dots for the kids to add on their own.

They wore them for maybe a few minutes, but a cute little art project nonetheless. ;)

I attempted waffle cone bowls the night before using this recipe but ended up with cookies (which were much easier to form from the delicious buttery dough) instead. Since I didn’t have the right waffle cone tools on hand, I used our pancake griddle and grill press for the process.

A small roll of dough, a press on one side until brown, flip and repeat. They were yummy!

All in all, I would say it was an ice cream success.

Bring on the summer sun! I’m ready for lots of outdoor parties and reasons to get together with friends. Maybe by a pool or at the beach next time? I’m definitely looking forward to my maternity leave :).
