HAPPY ICE CREAM DAY!!! Since 1984, we have been celebrating National Ice Cream Day, when President Ronald Reagan declared that every third Sunday in July would be National Ice Cream Day. It also turns out that July is National Ice Cream Month.
Let’s scream for ice cream, by making this super easy, no ice cream machine needed, Homemade Sundae Cones recipe in under 30 minutes! Watch and learn how to make these creamy, no-churn vanilla ice cream cones dipped in rich dark chocolate and topped with crunchy roasted peanuts for a super delicious summer treat.
For an even quicker way, use your favorite store-bought ice cream and also feel free to mix up the flavors. Pour a little melted chocolate in the bottom of each cone to keep melted ice cream from leaking out.
Homemade Sundae Cones
Preparation: 25 minutes Total time: 25 minutes
Makes 8 cones
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
1 Tablespoon pure vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon fine salt
2 cups cold heavy cream
8 sugar cones
8 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped, divided
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil

Peaches are high in vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, a good source of thiamin, riboflavin, vitamin B-6, folate, fiber, potassium and antioxidants. Need any more reason to eat peaches? Watch and learn how to make this super easy Peach Shortcake, ripe sliced peach soaked in Triple Sec paired with warm biscuits and vanilla ice cream, heavenly summer dessert! This is also good with nectarines instead of peaches. For softer, cakier biscuits, add more milk and spoon the mixture onto the baking sheet. Firmer biscuits require less milk and should be rolled out and cut.
Makes 10 to 12 individual shortcakes
For the biscuit
1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon coarse salt
6 Tablespoons (3/4 stick) chilled unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
3/4 cup milk
1 Tablespoon granulated sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
For the filling
1 pound fresh ripe peaches, peeled and sliced
2 Tablespoons fresh orange juice
2 Tablespoons Triple Sec liqueur, optional
1 Tablespoon unsalted butter, softened
1 pint best-quality vanilla ice cream, slightly softened, or whipped cream
Rich, buttery blondie serves as the base of this show-stopping cake and is also folded into the vanilla ice cream filling. When you make caramel, there are a few secrets to avoiding crystallization. First, heat it initially over a low flame, so that all the sugar crystals fully melt before the mixture boils. Next, once the sugar is all melted, put a lid on the pan until the mixture comes to a steady boil. (The steam created washes down the sides of the pan and prevents new sugar crystals from forming.) Watch and learn how she creates a vanilla ice cream cake with a blondie base that is topped with a softy, chewy, and totally insane chocolate-caramel topping.
