Scooping - For perfect scoops, freeze the ice cream in a loaf pan until firm. To serve, run an ice cream scoop down the length of the pan, heating the scoop briefly in warm water between scoops. You can use a scoop with liquid antifreeze inside the handle, which prevents the tool from getting cold -- find it in kitchen stores.
party scoops - use a small ice cream scoop, dole out balls onto parchment lined cookie sheet, Insert a craft stick into each and place in freezer. Chill til hardened. Roll scoops in sprinkles, toasted coconut, crushed cookies or nuts, diced dried fruit or candies.Place in storage container in freezer til you are ready to party
Another pinner said: Kids birthday ice cream cupcakes! I just used store-bought tubs of icing(except I made the green), filled ziploc bags, cut the corner off, and piped on the icing. It works in a pinch! I used gumdrops instead of gum balls and used cookie icing for the "chocolate syrup" because it has that drippy look. These are so easy and cute!! Big hit!!
