How to Make an Old-Fashioned Ice Cream Soda #IceCreamWeek

How to Make an Old-Fashioned Ice Cream Soda #IceCreamWeek

Ice Cream Week is sending me on a wonderful trip down Memory Lane. On Tuesday, I updated ice cream sandwiches. Today, Day #4 of our 99 ways to make ice cream, I’m all about another of my frosty favorites, the ice cream soda.

Before we get too far into the story, just a quick reminder - the #IceCreamWeek giveaway is still on (with many thanks to our wonderful sponsors) and all of my blogging pals have got other great recipes and ways to use ice cream, so be sure to check those details at the end of this post. Now back to our regularly scheduled program, as they used to say on TV, in the days before Netflix, streaming, binge-watching, and tablets.

When I was a kid, at the local ice cream parlor, as everyone else ordered banana splits or hot fudge sundaes, my choice was always an ice cream soda. I watched with glee as the soda bubbled away and the ice cream melted just enough to sweeten the soda. Once the soda was almost gone, I would look around to see if anyone noticed when I made that terrible slurping sound with the straw that parents everywhere cringe at – and to this day, I can’t resist making, even in polite company.

It’s easy to make ice cream sodas at home and the variations are endless.

For #IceCreamWeek 2014, I decided to update my ice cream sandwich by making fudgy chocolate layers, about half as thick as a normal brownie, and in-between a vanilla ice cream base infused with ginger and flecked with tiny bits of crystallized ginger
