Liz Life is Eat Short Eat the Ice Cream

When we bought our dream house last year, I had one primary goal: to find a home with space for entertaining (and cooking for!) our friends and family. 

Coffee Almond Fudge Parfait

As a result, I was thrilled when my friends at Tillamook gave me another excuse to host a party: National Ice Cream Month!

Ice Cream Parfait Toppings

When brainstorming my ice cream social, I took inspiration from the ever-popular meat and cheese charcuterie boards that you see at parties everywhere these days and decided to create display boards full of delicious ice cream parfait toppings.

Toasted Coconut and Cherries

One of the many reasons I love Tillamook Ice Cream, aside from the incredible taste and texture, is the fact that their flavors are made with only high quality, premium ingredients.

As a result, I wanted to pair the ice cream with real, non-artificial ice cream toppings such as toasted coconut flakes, roasted pecans, fresh picked blueberries and, of course, homemade magic shell. (More on that in a bit!)

Kids Toppings Egg Crates

Of course, you can’t have an ice cream social without including the kiddos so we made mini egg shell cartons full of their very own toppings like muesli, sliced strawberries, granola and more.

It’s hard to say, but I think they were a hit with the little ones.

While the kids were outside diving in, I snuck the adults inside for a quick magic shell demonstration.

Peanut Butter Magic Shell

In addition to chocolate, I also showed how to make my other favorite ice cream topping: peanut butter magic shell.

Needless to say, their minds were blown. It doesn’t take much with this crew and that’s why I love them so much!

Friends Making Parfaits

After the demo, I let the crowd loose to get busy and make their own special ice cream parfait creations using a few of my favorite Tillamook ice cream flavors including Chocolate Peanut Butter, Coffee Almond Fudge, Chocolaty Chip Cookie Dough, Mint Chocolate Chip and more.
