Did you know that people in New England eat more ice cream per capita than in the rest of the country? This proves that ice cream is not only a warm weather treat. Try these easy almond-coated ice cream balls with your kids; they’ll forget the snow…
1 cup chopped toasted almonds or pecans or if your kids would strongly prefer, colored sprinkles
1 quart vanilla ice cream
Place almonds or sprinkles in a shallow dish. Scoop out ice cream and shape into balls. Roll in topping until well coated. Place on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet and freeze.
Hot Fudge Sauce
1-1/2 cups Rich’s whip, defrosted
2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
¼ cup margarine, cut into pieces
2 cups powdered sugar
Combine the whip, chocolate chips and margarine in a saucepan. Cook, stirring, over low heat until smooth. Add powdered sugar and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Serve hot or cold over ice cream balls. Yum!
