Any time of year can be a great time to dig into a bowl of ice cream. As the weather outside warms up, the luscious taste of ice cream can be a tantalizingly terrific way to satisfy your sweet tooth.
Two people who really know the scoop when it comes to ice cream are Ray Karam, the official Tastemaster, and Nola Krieg, Operations Manager of Product Development (aka Tastemaster Apprentice) of Cold Stone Creamery. With more than 25 years in the dairy industry, Karam is responsible for researching and developing the company's indulgent combinations and flavors of ice cream, mix-ins and cakes. Krieg is fondly known as the Tastemaster's right-hand woman, lending support and providing valuable feedback to development and operational tasks surrounding new products.
With Karam's extensive background in food science and Krieg's expertise in culinary arts, they have created this fun, anytime recipe for s'mores with a twist-taking advantage of one of Cold Stone's new "to go" options, the 48-oz. Everybody's.
Ice Cream Creation S'mores
1 Everybody's (48-oz. size) Cold Stone Ice Cream Creation (suggested creations: Coffee Lovers Only, Peanut Butter Cup Perfection or Founder's Favorite)
