This summer, let refreshing desserts take center stage at backyard picnics, barbecues and Fourth of July festivities.
- Can’t get enough of ice cream sundaes? Try a freshly baked pan cookie or “skookie.” Toppings are customizable but we love to go classic with vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup.
- As a shortcut, try making ice cream sandwiches with ready-to-bake Toll House Refrigerated Cookie Dough and your favorite ice cream flavor. Then freeze for anytime treats – they’re also perfect for last-minute guests!
- ‘Tis the season for fresh fruit! Take advantage of the abundance of in-season produce by visiting farmer’s markets and local grocers. Enjoy your bundle of colorful berries with a dollop of sweetened whipped topping flavored with lime.
- If you like to save room for dessert, this delicious Caramel Macchiato Ice Cream Pie is a crowd pleaser. A combination of smooth coffee ice cream, Dulce de Leche, Nestlé Toll House chocolate morsels and an almond graham cracker crust creates a delightfully grown-up taste.
