10 Delicious Ice Cream Recipes

10 Delicious Ice Cream RecipesWell, there’s not doubt that the summer heat is here in Philadelphia! Instead of being embarrassed by how many times I will frequent my neighborhood ice cream parlor over the next few months, I decided to take the plunge and buy a ice cream maker!

Melted Chocolates with Edible Gold Foil

Melted Chocolates with Edible Gold FoilIf you’re looking to make your Valentine a sweet treat, what says I love you more than edible gold foil?! These melted chocolates are possibly the easiest dessert you can whip up and they’re equal parts delicious and fun. Here’s how:

Time: 25 minutes
Materials: melting chocolates, edible gold foil, mold, pan/spoon

Melted Chocolates with Edible Gold FoilYou can buy any color of candy melts you want, same goes for the shape of the mold. I found both of mine at my local party store, but Michaels and Amazon have a pretty decent selection. A heart shaped mold would be super cute for Valentine’s Day, and well, everyday if we’re being honest.

Melted Chocolates with Edible Gold FoilMake sure all of your utensils are dry before beginning. Water causes the chocolate coating to harden and steak. You can either melt your chocolates in the microwave (stirring every 30 seconds until melted) or with the double boiler method on the stove.

Melted Chocolates with Edible Gold FoilOnce your chocolate is melted, pour into your mold. It helps to run the back of a knife across the top to smooth the bottom of your candy out. Tap the mold on a hard surface to get rid of any air bubbles (important step!) and then set in the freezer for 10 minutes. Your chocolates should pop right out once you remove them from the freezer!

Melted Chocolates with Edible Gold FoilTo complete, apply gold foil to your chocolates by placing the sheet on the surface and smoothing with your finger. Easy as that! Store at room temperature (don’t put back in the fridge) and keep away from heat and light.

Enjoy!

My Grandmother’s Veggie Dip Recipe

The perfect veggie dip recipeAlright, so I have a bittttt of a confession: I am a picky eater. Yup, I admit it, though you probably already knew this. For now I will be sticking to diy tutorials; however, one food that I’ve loved essentially my entire life is my grandmother’s veggie dip recipe, so I really wanted to share it with you. It’s super easy to make (you really just stir a few ingredients together), and it taste leagues better than any store bought kind or ranch dressing. It’s the perfect thing to bring to a summer dinner party or picnic! Here’s the recipe:

  • 2/3 cup sour cream
  • 2/3 cup mayo
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp parsley
  • 1 tsp dill
  • 1 tsp seasoning salt
  • 1 tsp onion flakes

Add ingredients together in a bowl and chill in fridge for 30 minutes before serving. Bada-bing, bada-boom. My kind of recipe! I’ve even substituted the dairy in this recipe for vegan alternatives and it was still pretty tasty. The perfect veggie dip recipeMy go-to veggie for this recipe is cauliflower, but I promise that this dip will make any of your favorite taste even more delicious!
