I absolutely love birthdays. It’s a chance to celebrate another year of your loved one or friend. One of things I’ve really got into doing lately is making a special treat for birthdays. I like to take birthday girl and guy’s favorite flavors and come up with a dessert. Well, lucky you, my 8 year old niece loves bubble gum. I mean seriously loves gum. So I thought that it would be super fun to make a bubblegum ice cream for her birthday party.
Having never made a candy based ice cream before, I sought advice from a chef friend who has a lot of ice cream experience. Turns out, its pretty simple. The bubble gum actually mostly melts into the base. But, what doesn’t melt, is simply strained out. The same goes with candy. You can steep any candy you want–licorice or jolly ranchers–whatever you can think of. Now, I can’t promise you that it will taste good but I bet at least those two candy based ice creams would be delicious!
