Summertime is the perfect time to enjoy cool treats like ice cream sandwiches so why not throw a party that incorporates these yummy treats. My girls and I threw an ice cream sandwich party and it was fantastic. We set out a candy buffet full of delicious and pretty goodies from Celebration by Frey like Sixlets, candy crumbles, Pearls and gumballs (because who doesn’t love a gum ball?). We added an assortment of cookies and ice cream and started creating.
At our house we have some allergy issues so I added in lactose free ice cream, sorbet and gluten free cookies so everyone would enjoy the party. And yes the Celebration by Frey Sixlets, Candy Crumbles and Pearls are gluten free.
We tried lots of different ice cream sandwich flavor combinations and they all turned out delicious. My daughter loved the strawberry sorbet with Pizzelle cookies and Sixlets. She said it tasted like chocolate covered strawberries with a waffle cone… yum! My husband loved the chocolate chip cookies with vanilla ice cream and Sixlets and my daughter loved the chocolate cookies with vanilla ice cream and candy crumbles. We decided to add the adorable googly eyes on top and made monster ice cream sandwiches, they are so cute!!! They eyes were easy to attach with a bit of chocolate fudge ice cream topping.
Set up for the party is super easy just place all of your candy out in a colorful and pretty candy buffet. I used a variety of glass dishes and I added little silver spoons plus a tower of cookies. The ice creams need to be slightly soft so leaving them out for people to self serve is perfect, just not too long sitting out. One scoop of ice cream on the cookies is perfect, then fill your plate with Celebration by Frey products (Sixlets, Pearls, Candy Crumbles) and roll your ice cream sandwich in the candies.
This candy buffet is almost too pretty to eat, the shimmery look that Celebration by Frey products have is unique and really adds to the overall appeal of these candies. You can purchase these candies at major retailers nationwide including Walmart, Target, Party City and Michaels.
