Now for the ice cream selections. I went with Coffee Toffee, Vanilla Swiss Almond, and Butter Pecan. You really can’t go wrong with your selection. Try to get something for everyone by spicing it up with a little variety, just don’t forget the classics.
And because nobody likes melty ice cream, I’m going to share my secret for keeping the goods cold while everyone dresses their apple pie.
First, remove the ice cream from their containers. Scoop balls out and place in glass serving bowls and put them back in the freezer to let them set. Then, fill a large bowl with ice and arrange your glass containers within the ice cubes. Pour a mixture of salt water around the ice cubes. Don’t be afraid to go heavy on the salt—I usually add around 1/4 a cup. The reason? Science. Basically, it will keep your ice, water, and ice cream all colder.
