Can you believe Thanksgiving is right around the corner?! I cant believe the time is almost here! This year, Jake and I get to spend time with my family, which means a party with 11 nieces and nephews! We wanted to think of a fun activity treat we could all enjoy while we were at the family cabin and be fun for any age, so we came up with a fun ice cream bar party!
Jake and I recently were searching the ice cream isle at Walmart and came across these HAAGEN-DAZS Gelato Bars and had to give them a whirl! We tried the Caramel Vanilla Pizzelle that is vanilla gelato with two gold caramel ribbons, fully dipped in milk chocolate and crunchy Italian style pizzelle cookie pieces.
We loved them so much we knew these would be so fun to get for everyone on Thanksgiving weekend and have fun decorating them! We thought before we did the activity with everyone, we should try it out and see if they turn ok ok first!
We set up a little Ice Cream Bar Station and tried to use items we had around the house! We found some Rieces Pieces Minis, Candy Corn and sprinkles for topping. We also thought it would be fun to do some melted chocolate so we added melting chips in our chocolate melter to dip some ice cream bars!
The Haagen Dazs Gelato Bars worked out great dipping them in the melted chocolate. The bars stayed firm and since they ice cream bars were cold, the new layer of chocolate dried really quick! We had so much fun making these treats we cant wait to make these with the whole fam!
