My how the summer has flown by. The kids go back to school in just a couple of weeks. I wanted to take a moment to celebrate summer and so I had my children invite some of their friends over for an ice cream and cookies party. This wasn't just some ordinary ice cream or cookies, no we had Schwan's! Schwan's makes some of the best frozen items I've ever tasted. It was only fitting to serve what we enjoy the best and the kids loved it. Schwan's sent me some of their S'mores Ice Cream #225 as well as their Cinnamon Roll Ice Cream #223. I was also sent Schwan's Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Supreme frozen cookie dough and Schwan's Monster Mania frozen cookie dough.
I set up our party outdoors under our gazebo. This was pretty much the easiest party I've ever set up for. The cookies from Schwan's come as frozen pucks of dough that I just tossed into the oven (no need to thaw) prior to our party time. I sort of set the dough too close and some of the cookie melded together but that's no biggie, kids don't care. The ice cream is obviously even easier, just a scooper and we were set to go.
I took all of the delicious fresh baked cookies off of the pans and piled them onto a platter to set out. For the ice cream I bought a box of waffle cone bowls. I simply scooped the ice cream into the waffle bowls set into a plastic bowl and served. If you have a large party you could pre-scoop and set in the freezer to keep chilled.
Both flavors of ice cream and cookies were phenomenal. The ice creams are so very creamy and just packed full of flavor. The kids all loved Monster Mania cookies best because of the fun colorful candy chocolates inside.
As soon as I carried the trays out the kids lined up, they were ready! They couldn't wait to eat the super creamy Schwan's ice cream. Everyone chose a cookie to have along with their ice cream. I had some extra toppings set out just in case the kids wanted them. Eyes lit up and smiles were on all faces. The clean up was so easy and afterwards all the kiddos played outside to burn off their extra energy. I sat out in the gazebo and read a book because cleanup was such a cinch. I am really going to miss these carefree days of summer.
Thank you to Schwan's for sending us the delicious treats, you are the best!
