What is an Ice Cream Soda exactly? I don’t ever recall having those back home – we instead have something called Spaghetti Ice! But Ice Cream Soda is a delicious summer treat it’s a simple mixture of ice cream with soda of some sort usually topped with whipped cream and a cherry!
Ice Cream Soda with Homemade Chocolate SyrupCourse: Dessert
- Chocolate Syrup Ingredients:
½ c. water
½ c. white sugar
1/3 c. unsweetened dark cocoa powder
1 t. real vanilla extract
1/8 t. salt
- Soda Ingredients:
1 c. club soda
3 c. vanilla ice cream
- For Garnish:
- To prepare the chocolate syrup, combine the water, sugar, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, and salt in a small skillet set over medium heat. Whisk vigorously until the sugar is dissolved and the cocoa powder is thoroughly incorporated into the mixture, approximately 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat.
- Add a large spoonful of chocolate syrup to each serving glass and top with enough club soda to fill each glass halfway. Divide the ice cream between the glasses and top with additional chocolate syrup.
- To serve, top each ice cream soda with a generous amount of whipped cream, mini-chocolate chips, and a maraschino cherry. Enjoy!
