Okay, as you know about a week ago I bought a case of root beer cups from Schwan’s – and, let me tell you, they were good. They were so good, in fact, that I want to learn to make my own. I’m not sure how I’ll do this but I’m going to figure something out, lol, and when I do I’ll post the recipe here.
As far as I know, regular vanilla ice cream should work but you shouldn’t use regular root beer. They use what tastes like root beer flavored ice with the ice cream, the reason I like this better is because it makes it easier for me to judge how long to put it in the microwave, and even better how long to freeze it so it’s solid enough to pack in bento. I figure if I make them big enough to fit in my hello kitty thermos, I can just pull one out of the freezer, pop it into the thermos and go and it’ll melt over the course of the day and by the time I’m ready to have bento it’ll be nice and melty but still cold if I play my cards right.
I’m gonna try it with that home-made root beer packet drink they sell at WalMart, double-strength, and see if it works. If it does, I’ll let you know!
