Recently on our Facebook, one of our awesome fans made an ingenious dessert suggestion upon seeing a post about one of our favorite classic chews: Squirrel Nut Zippers!

If you’re looking to unwind and indulge, try this sweet treat! Just grab your favorite flavor of ice cream. (Vanilla creates for a delicious flavorful blend, but some other great choices include: chocolate, coffee, caramel or any taste you’d love to blend with peanuts!) Nothing sweeter on a hot summer day than a refreshingly cold ice cream cone with your own homemade ice cream topping made from your favorite NECCO chew! You’re going to love this delicious peanuty indulgence!

Ingredients:

  • your favorite flavor of ice cream
  • Squirrel Nut Zippers

SNZ

Instructions:

  1. In a double boiler, melt the Squirrel Nut Zippers. About 15 will yield 1/4 cup of topping.
  2. Pour into a serving boat or small pitcher.
  3. Let cool so as not to melt the ice cream. Do not let cool completely, as it will start to harden and set back into its candy form.
  4. Scoop yourself a big bowl of vanilla ice cream.
  5. Pour the melted Squirrel Nut Zipper topping over your ice cream.
  6. Add some whole Squirrel Nut Zippers, sprinkles, whipped cream or your other favorite topping.
  7. Indulge on this yummy summer treat! =)
