Mix & Match Ice Cream Options:

This fun ice cream looks like camouflage when you scoop it! And it’s so easy to make! Start with a chocolate ice cream, a light brown ice cream like coffee, and a green ice cream like mint or pistachio. Then, just scoop randomly from the three containers into a loaf pan, periodically using another loaf pan to squish everything down and push the air pockets out. Put back into the freezer and refreeze the ice cream, then just scoop and serve. The scoops will be camouflage patterned.

This amazingly delicious ice cream uses Medjool dates as the base for a sticky toffee to blend with vanilla ice cream. Perfection!

Buddy Valastro's Leftover Candy Ice Cream

This cleverly simple recipe calls for a gallon of pre-made vanilla ice cream, softened and then blended with any candy that you like! Pop it back in the freezer to re-set, and you’re done!
