“U CHOSE” ICE-CREAM PARTY FOR A CROWD.
It is summer in FLORIDA!!!! Is not all the time? No! Summer means hot, hot, hot and humid, humid, humid!!! You don’t want to be outside…You don’t want to go around!.....
All you want cold drinks, a dip in the pool and ice-cream…..It is all you think about!
For a nice party some ice cream towers are a blessing! You can make it before hand, or everybody can be creative!
It is not so much to prepare, but there is some preparation beforehand!
1. Thin cookie.
There are ready made or you can bake your own.
I found that “MORAVIAN COOKIE” is pretty good choice, many kinds, in all groceries store, thin and right size: lemon, ginger, cinnamon, chocolate.
There is some thin cookie at the baker’s counter, that are good, plain and with nuts.
