Yesterday was creative ice cream flavor day. How exciting is that? I once read that in the Summer something like 10% of people eat ice cream as a meal. I don’t see a problem with this, in fact I would definitely encourage this. We currently have all sorts of ice cream in our freezer. And I recommend, if you visit the area, that you try Wilcoxson’s ice cream. It’s local to us and we like supporting local businesses.
I grew up in Greendale, WI. When we were kids (and by we, I am referring to me and my brother), we would often walk to the “Cone Shop.” It was a small ice cream shop that served soft serve cones and slushies. I don’t have any specific memories attached to this place, but I will always remember what it looked like, and it smelled exactly like an ice cream cone. It smelled not just like the ice cream, but the cone as well. It was a very basic place. Simple. They sold cones. And tasty ice drinks. I think, but I am not 100% certain, but I think my brother liked the graveyard slushies(all the flavors mixed together). I was a purist. A twist cone. Chocolate and vanilla. That was good enough for me.
In honor of Creative Ice Cream flavor day, go out and get a cone. If you can, walk to a local place, and get yourself messy. Let it melt on your hands and face. Pretend your a kid.
Or stay in air conditioned comfort and try out my recipe below. It is a rif on Medieval Madness, a flavor Blue Bunny does not offer and has not for years.
Medieval Madness-Katy’s version
2 cups heavy whipping cream
2 large eggs
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup malted milk powder (I use Ovaltine)
4-6 3 Musketeer Bars
A few squeezes of caramel sauce
–Whisk together the first six ingredients and pour into an ice cream maker. Follow your ice cream makers instructions. About 3-4 minutes before ice cream is done, add broken up 3 Musketeers. When ice cream is done fold in a few squeezes of caramel.
You can eat it right away, or put it in the freezer. Either way, you’ll enjoy it.
