Ice Cream Social | CA Milk Advisory Board

June 20, 2012

Last week I was invited to attend a Not So Old-Fashioned Ice Cream Social hosted by the CALIFORNIA MILK ADVISORY BOARD and I may have indulged just a little bit.  Or… a lot a bit.  I couldn’t pass up the Cannoli Gelato Sandwiches, Peanut Butter Brittle Ice Cream Pops, or Floating Blueberry California Cobblers!  The last one being my absolute favorite!

CA Real Milk Ice Cream

My little one and I recently decided that every Monday this summer should be ICE CREAM MONDAY so thankfully the folks at the California Milk Advisory Board gave us the recipes to make these delicious desserts — and I think they are perfect for Ice Cream Monday!
