Today we’re talking about a classic dessert. One that involves root beer, ice cream, and a mug. Yep, just in case you couldn’t tell by the title of this recipe, it’s root beer floats. How do you feel about this dessert-drink? Love ’em, hate ’em, or never remember to make them?
Yields 6 popsicles
2 hr, 20 Prep Time
- 12 ounces Root Beer (or enough to fill 6 popsicle molds)
- 4 scoops vanilla ice cream, plus more for garnish
- In a large bowl, add the root beer and place into the freezer for about 10-15 minutes until it turns very cold (but not frozen). This will reduce the melting of the ice cream once it's added in.
- Remove the root beer from the freezer and add in the ice cream.
- Gently stir to break up the scoops into small chunks.
- Add about 1 tablespoon of ice cream into the bottom of each popsicle mold.
- Then pour the root beer mixture almost to the top (about 3/4 full).
- Place 1 tablespoon on the tops of each mold.
- Insert the popsicle sticks and freeze for at least 2 hours.
