The hubby loves floats/shakes so made this as a surprise treat for him. Had a bit of trouble finding the fudge ripple ice cream but it was well worth the effort. We loved using Cherry Coke with the fudge ripple ice cream, reminded us of a chocolate covered cherry. :) Definitely add the whipped cream and cherry to top. Made and reviewed for the For Your Consideration recipe tag game.
Oh yum, breezermom. The chocolate and cherry flavors together were wonderful in this updated version of a classic treat. I couldn't find Fudge Ripple ice cream so I used Vanilla Fudge Sundae ice cream which is just your basic vanilla ice cream with ribbons of chocolate ice cream and small bits of chocolate chunks. Made for your win in the 2013 Football Pool.
I loved the switch with Cherry Coke!!! Reminded me of when I was young and when to roller skate and always got a cherry coke. I subbed plain vanilla and Diet Cherry Coke but otherwise followed as written. Thanks for sharing a fun twist on this float. Made for your win in the football pool, congrats!!!
It was so nice and warm yesterday and today, that I made this twice. It's so good! Definetely will have more during the summer.
This was so delicious that we had them almost finished when I suddenly remembered that I had forgotten to take a photo. I used 2 cups of cherry soda and 2 cups of Coke as someone had consumed the bottle of Cherry Coke that I had bought. Made for Went To The Market tag.
What a splendid idea! And the flavor is great too! I would have never thought to use cherry Coke OR fudge ripple ice cream...great concept. I think the possibilities are endless, now that my eyes have been opened! DS slurped his down, as did DH and myself. Perfect! I skipped the whipped cream/cherry, but will certainly add them next time! Thanks so much for sharing, breezermom!
I cut this recipe in half for just 2 of us, & I know if I'd made it all, I'd also have consumed 3/4 of it myself, it was so good ~ Really enjoyed the chocolate & cherry mix! Didn't even go looking for a fudge ripple ice cream, but instead used Ben & Jerry's Phish Food (an outrageous combo of chocolate & marshmallow & caramel & who knows what else! Anyway, it was just perfect, we thought, for this float! [Made & reviewed in 1-2-3 Hit Wonders tag]
Excellent float recipe. I never would have thought to add vanilla extract to the coke, but it turned out delicious. Thanks for posting. Made for the Photo Tag game.
I couldn't find fudge ripple ice cream this side of the pond so used vanilla. This was still excellent and a real treat. I'll have to try it with my almond coke next!
This reminds me of an old fashioned soda shop!
