Salted Caramel Ice Cream in the Making!

We are in the midst of a hotter than hot summer heat and humidity. It is the perfect opportunity to keep our ovens off and cool down with two of the most mouthwatering ice cream flavors.


These two flavors are some of the top flavors in my opinion and they are at the top for good reason. I choose to do both to please all palate types. You get both chocolate and non-chocolate options. And yes, Surprisingly enough, there are people out there who do not like chocolate.


Salted caramel is a flavor that you will always see in an ice cream shop, it is a fan favorite because the salty and sweet flavors balance each other out giving you the ultimate salty and sweet combination. Scoop that onto a cake cone and it will be gone before you know it!


S’mores is just one of those flavors that will never ever go out of style and given that it is summertime you bet I have s’mores on my mind. Whenever I hear s’mores my ears perk up, my eyes widen and my mouth drools just a little bit. Just the thought of fluffy marshmallows, crispy graham crackers and melt in your mouth chocolate makes me crave it even more! So, I thought there would be no better flavor than this for my chocolate option. Waffle cones tase similar to graham crackers, so when scooped into that waffle cone the combination is too good to be true!
