July's not only the month of Independence Day and a great time to take a dip in the pool; it's also National Ice Cream Month, started by President Ronald Reagan in 1984.
Robert Ouzts, Panama City territory/operations manager for Blue Bell, stopped by News 13 This Morning to share a tasty summer treat that can be prepared with their newest flavor: Rockslide Brownie. It's a dark chocolate ice cream with pieces of chocolate, brownies, miniature marshmallows, chopped almonds, pecans and walnuts with a rich caramel swirl.
Ouzts showed News 13 This Morning's co-anchor, Jessica Foster, how to use the new flavor to make Rockslide Brownie S'mores. He said it's a great treat to make as a family, since it just involves a few simple steps.
Rockslide Brownie S’Mores
2 graham cracker squares
1 to 2 t. chocolate dessert topping
1 to 2 t. marshmallow sauce
1 scoop Blue Bell Rockslide Brownie Ice Cream (approximately 1/3 cup)
Drizzle dessert topping on one side of a graham cracker square. Place ice cream on top of sauce. Top with second graham cracker square and press down gently to adhere the crackers to the ice cream. Serve immediately. Make one serving.
Note: The above dessert can be eaten without utensils. To make it a little fancier, serve it “open-faced” by omitting the second graham square. Serve it in a small dessert dish and top the ice cream with a dollop of whipped topping, some crushed graham cracker pieces and more dessert topping.
