Next, you will need to select a few ice cream options. If your family adores the trying new thing, I highly recommend trying Jeni's Ice Cream, I've tried five flavors so far and each one has been absolutely delicious.

  • Fruit Sauces

After you decide what toppings you will be serving, add them to mini bowls.

Place the bowls along with the ice cream pints and ice cream scoop on top of the ice in your float. Easy peasy.

Don't forget to include ice cream cones or cups, too!

An ice cream bar is self-serve, making it a whole lot easier for everyone to dig in!
