STEP FIVE: Pour the pink ice cream into the loaf pan. Smooth down with a spoon or spatula.

How To Serve

Serve this tasty ice cream in a cone. I like to line my cones with chocolate and pop a mini marshmallow in the bottom so the ice cream doesn’t drip out while you’re eating.

You can also scoop your ice cream into a bowl and top it with whipped cream. Try out our chocolate chip cookie cups for a fun way to serve up this yummy ice cream.

IN THE FRIDGE: The fridge isn’t cold enough to store ice cream, you’ll need to freeze it. Don’t use the freezer section of your refrigerator as it won’t be as cold as a separate freezer.

IN THE FREEZER: Be sure to store the finished ice cream in the freezer wrapped with plastic or with an airtight lid on top. When ready to serve, take it out about 5 minutes before you plan to scoop it, to give it a bit of time to thaw. This will make it much easier to scoop out. Place back in the freezer immediately after serving. The texture may change if the ice cream is taken out and put back in the freezer too many times.
