What better way to beat the heat than with homemade vanilla ice cream churned in an old-fashioned maker with ice and rock salt....and Smucker's ice cream toppings!
Smucker's sent me a care package of some fun summer stuff and 4 awesome new ice cream toppings. In my care package were 2 bottles of microwavable Hot Butterscotch and Hot Milk Chocolate toppings as well as 2 bottles of Magic Shell in Root Beer and Pink Lemonade flavors. We took some freshly churned vanilla ice cream and these toppings to my mom's house to enjoy for dessert after Sunday dinner. Everyone got to mix and match and create their own sundaes- such a fun idea to get everyone involved in the kitchen. I'm offering a giveaway below, but if you want to try them out, they're available in stores now from $2.29- $2.99. Check the FlavorFinder to find your favorite flavor.
The Magic Shell toppings were the most fun to play with because as soon as you pour them over the cold ice cream it firms up and you can crack into it as you eat the ice cream. Adding colorful sprinkles and chocolate jimmies only made it better. My mom and Hayden liked the Pink Lemonade the best. It was refreshing and bright, but not sour in anyway. It was almost like eating lemon cake along with your ice cream. My brother, loved the Root Beer Magic shell and poured his over an ice cream cone. I'm generally not a big fan of root beer unless it's with ice cream. This tasted just like those hard root beer candies. If you are a root beer fan, you will LOVE this.

The Hot Butterscotch and Milk Chocolate were my favorites. I could eat these toppings by the spoonful! Their bottles are designed to be heated in the microwave and the new label will read "Hot" when it's heated up. I skipped this step and just poured them straight over my ice cream and topped with chopped almonds. It tasted like the best Butter Pecan Ice Cream ever....except that it was almonds :-)Sticky, gooey, buttery and with a great caramel flavor. Butterscotch has never been a favorite flavor but this topping changed my mind. And of course, there's the Milk Chocolate flavor that my hubby liked. Just like hot fudge, but milk chocolate flavor- a must try.
Smucker's is spreading the love and giving one reader an ice cream topping kit complete with these four ice cream toppings. The winner will receive 1 bottle of each Smucker's toppings: Hot Butterscotch and Hot Milk Chocolate, Magic Shell Root Beer and Magic Shell Pink Lemonade.
