Are you guys sick of the pinks, reds, and hearts yet? Because I’m just getting started over here. You know I am all about the gift baskets.. so over the weekend when I was planning out some homemade goodies for the upcoming hearts holiday I got to thinking about what kind of present I could put together for a friend of mine.
Then it hit me, I’ve got all kinds of little items around here that could be used for an ice cream themed gift basket. What got me thinking about ice cream? I’m not quite sure.. unless I was dreaming about the cappuccino gelato from Al Gelato on my last trip out to Los Angeles. Hmm, that must have been it.
My latest obsession, besides gift baskets, is dipping things in white chocolate. I took plain ice cream cones that I got from the store and merely melted white chocolate bark, dipped the tops of the cones into the chocolate, and then rolled them into the sprinkles to make them festive for V-Day. So simple to do and yet looks so nice.
Package up all of these little goodies, make your “homemade” hearts cones, and then send everything along with a pint or two of your loved one’s favorite ice cream. I guarantee they will love it- and you!
Some of my suggestions of items to put in the mix?
