The Halloween twist with these spooky root beer floats is a fun and easy update to the original.
These spooky root beer floats come to life with ice cream eyeballs made with Sprouts Pomegranate Berry Swirl Ice Cream. The streaks of dark red and magenta throughout the pink ice cream base really put a special blood-shot-spooky spin on these simple scoops that quickly turn into a Halloween treat with the addition of candy eyeballs.
I’ve teamed up with #Sprouts Farmers Markets again this month to make a Halloween treat that will delight all of the ghost and goblins in your clan! Some of my favorite seasonal treats are based on a few, quality ingredients and a short instruction list: these root beer floats won’t disappoint!
Rootbeer floats are a treat of days gone by and they deserve to be brought back to menus in ice cream shops again. I enjoyed one on a recent trip to the mountains here in Colorado. An old fashioned ice cream shop had every combination of float, shake, cone, and dairy treat that you might imagine– and some that I had never heard of! Drinking the rootbeer float took me back to younger years when my mom would make these for us at home.
