On your next snow day, pass out these frothy floats and everybody will be glad they're cooped up with you. Lemon-lime soda works with the peppermint ice cream, too. ‐Crystal Schlueter, Northglenn, Colorado

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup lemon-lime soda
  • 1 cup peppermint ice cream
  • 1/2 cup whipped cream
  • Peppermint candy, optional

Directions

Pour lemon-lime soda into two glasses; add ice cream. Top with whipped cream. If desired, sprinkle with peppermint candy. Serve immediately with straws and spoons. Yield: 2 servings.

Test Kitchen tip
  • Make a cute sled garnish for each soda by aligning two candy canes side by side, curved sides up, leaving 1/2 in. between them, and spreading a little decorating icing on the straight part of canes. Place a graham cracker over icing to resemble a sled, pressing gently to adhere. Allow icing to set for 5 minutes; top cracker with a Sour Patch Kid. Repeat for second soda. For a festive touch, hang sleds off the glasses.
