    This summer, invite the neighborhood kids over for an ice cream social in your backyard. The kids will have fun decorating their own sundaes, and you may even want to have a contest for the most creative or the most colorful. The toppings are endless - hot fudge, butterscotch or caramel sauces, walnuts, peanuts, candy sprinkles and maraschino cherries. A fun time for kids and adults!

      RECIPE INGREDIENTS

    3 half-gallon cartons ice cream in your favorite flavors
    1 1/2 cups homemade or purchased fudge sauce
    1 1/2 cups homemade or purchased chocolate sauce
    1 1/2 cups homemade or purchased butterscotch or caramel sauce
    2 jars (7 ounces each) marshmallow cream
    4 to 6 tablespoons half and half
    1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
    1 cup Spanish peanuts
    1 cup coarsely chopped toasted almonds
    2 pints strawberries, hulled, sliced, and sweetened
    Assorted jars of decorative candy sprinkles
    8 bananas peeled and sliced lengthwise
    1 jar (10 ounces) maraschino cherries, drained

    Summertime Treats It?s summer and the kids are home...for three whole months! What better time to relax together, whipping up delicious treats in the kitchen or dabbling in fun crafts indoors and out. Parents will find plenty of ideas and inspiration for magical summer days in Summertime Treats, the handbook to keeping families cool and creative during the best months of the year. From an afternoon with the kids making Shake-Rattle-and-Roll Ice Cream and Big Bug Bungalows to a fabulous Fourth of July Star-Spangled Celebration and a Memorial Day Tailgate Picnic, author Sara Perry suggests wonderful ways to please every member of the family--including parents and other grown-ups. Fully illustrated with photographs throughout and chock-full of tempting snacks, summer drinks, fun projects, and clever ideas, this antidote to the allure of the television lets parents and kids of all ages have a great time cooking and making things together.

      RECIPE METHOD

    To prepare ice cream, remove the ice cream from the cartons several hours or the day before the party, and cut each block into 1-inch-thick slices. Place the slices between pieces of waxed paper, and repack or store in plastic bags in the freezer.

    To prepare the sundaes, first set up the table: Run sheets of aluminum foil the length of the two tables. Fold up the edges of the foil to form side walls. You will now have 1 giant try covering each table. (For easy cleanup when the party is over, roll up the foil and toss.)

    Warm the fudge, chocolate, and caramel sauces, and pour them into separate small pitchers. To dilute the marshmallow cream to a pouring consistency, place the open jar in the microwave and heat it for 15 to 20 seconds. Stir with a spoon so the warm, puffy cream deflates, then stir in enough half-and-half to achieve the proper consistency. Pour into a small pitcher.

    Place the walnuts, peanuts, almonds, and sliced strawberries in separate bowls.

    Just before serving time, gather up your family of helpers to place the ice cream slices lengthwise down the center of the foil "tray." Put the pitchers, bowls, and decorative sprinkles along the length of the tray and the bananas alongside the slices of ice cream. Pass the cherries and spoons, and see how many different sundae combinations you and your family and friends can create.
