I'm not normally a vanilla ice cream kind of girl.
I mean it IS sooo plain.
But every once in awhile I get a not so wild hair and just want some simple vanilla ice cream.
Trashed up of course!
Like this S'mores Ice Cream Sundae, sandwiched between two chocolate covered graham crackers or simply topped with some fresh fruit or sprinkles.
What is it that makes a sugar cone filled with vanilla ice cream and topped with colorful, crunchy sprinkles so good?!?!
Maybe it is the memory of of simple and carefree summers long ago or whimsical and showstopping special days spent at the circus or an amusement park.
Vanilla ice cream in a sugar cone covered in sprinkles is just what I needed to make my summer perfect! : )
What makes this ice cream even more perfect for the lazy days of summer? It is only three ingredients and doesn't require an ice cream maker... meaning homemade ice cream could be yours in just a few short hours!
