GRAND HAVEN (WZZM) -- What's the best food of the summertime? Ice cream! Kelly Larson from Sweet Temptations in Grand Haven joined the WZZM13 Noon News to share how to make your own ice cream treats at home.

Ice cream cookie sandwiches

Ingredients: Your choice of cookies, ice cream and toppings

Temper your ice cream for 15 minutes in the fridge. Put out cookies with flat sides up. Take a scoop of ice cream and place between two cookies, then flatten. Roll the edges of ice cream in your toppings and freeze to set the ice cream.

Ice cream pie

Temper a half gallon of ice cream in the fridge for 15-30 minutes. Scoop into a bowl and add as many ingredients as you'd like (cookies, nuts, chocolate) reserving 1/4 c. for the top Mound into the pie crust and garnish with remaining ingredients. Freeze to set the ice cream and serve with chocolate or caramel sauce and whip cream if desired.
