What do you do with your ice cream at home?

What I mean is do you just eat old plain ice cream or make some funjazz into it like chocolate syrup + candy toppings + whipped cream? something like that? I like to do that, make it looks so so so nice and slowly enjoy it! And what's good about it is the sugar of the syrup and toppings helps fill me up so I won't feel like going back for more!!! Most of the time, when I have ice cream, I tend to go back for more...:-p What about you? What is your preference when it comes to ice cream?^_^

No ways, if I have an option of having Ice-cream at home, I'll never have a plain ice-cream. I use as much as possible ingredients I have at home. First of all I just slide the chocolate syrups on the wall of the big ice-cream glass bowl. Then I put some pineapple jelly at the bottom, then I put some rose jelly above that, then I put a coupe of Vanilla ice-cream over it, then some chucks of pineapple fruit, then some cubes of solid jelly over it. then again I add a strawberry flavor ice-cream over it, then put some apple jelly over it, and then apply some fresh sweet cream over it at the top center, and chocolate syrups around it. then a big cherry over the fresh cream. and over that I add some choco-chips and dry fruits nuts. Here is my Tall beauty ice-cream ready for me. I love to have ice-cream like this at home.

When I have ice cream, I don't need it sweet. So when I add a topping or candies on it, I just want to make it looking good and I will find more enjoyable. LOL

I have a weakness for fresh thick cream poured over vanilla ice cream, a bit of an indulgence I know but I love the way the ice cream freezes the cream on the top. As it's so hot today I wish I hadn't looked at this thread as now feel an urge to indulge myself with this delicious treat.

We mostly just have the ice cream as is. Sometimes we put it in cones and the occasional time we will make milkshakes. We really don't buy ice cream much unless it is summer.

I don't have any candy toppings and whipped cream in my refrig, but I have ice cream in it. So whenever I have ice cream, I don't have any to add on top of it, so I have them plain.

I put fruits in my ice cream when we have some at home. Either that or if available, I'd put cake in it too! The sweeter the beater :D I like ice creams that has lots of toppings in it - so as long as the add ons go together well with the flavor of the ice cream, I'd dump it into my cup :) Thanks for the response on my discussion :)

ice cream - yea, ice cream
I eat it plain and boring, lol. I don't really like too much on it so I just put it in a bowl or cup and eat it. Most of the time ice cream is already sweet enough to eat, and I think putting all kinds of stuff on it can make it gross.

I don't eat very much ice cream but I did try something different the other day that was quite yummy. We heated up some canned raspberry pie filling and poured it over vanilla ice cream. It was a nice dessert and it was a little different too.

I like ice cream a lot and whatever the season maybe, i do want to eat it. I always stuff my ice cream with Hershey's Chocolate Syrup and then i will add Cherry on top. Sometimes when i do have fresh strawberries, i will also like to place it on top. I do enjoy different kinds of flavors of ice cream. I also want to sprinkle it with marshmallows and chocolate tidbits like i will grate a chocolate bar and that should do the trick. Sometimes when i have vanilla ice cream, i like to sprinkle it with grated cheese and marshmallows. You can also try to add nata de coco or coconut gel when you eat your ice cream. For me it is really so good, chewy, sweet and very delicious when i combine this coconut gel with hersheys chocolate syrup and grated cheese, yummyy

We usually eat it pretty plain here. I don't usually add too much of anything extra. As my kids are usually more interested in the extras rather than minding the melting icecream before them.

sometime I will just eat it like that. Or I will put chocolate syrup on it. or strawberries.
