How to Make Champagne Ice Cream Floats


Hard to believe another year has almost come and gone, right?!  We are getting ready to ring in 2022 with some dear friends that we celebrate with each year.  The kids play, the adults eat (and drink) and everything is merry!  It’s low-key and I love it.  I decided to make things a little more festive this year with these easy champagne ice cream floats!  Follow along and make some for your own shin-dig this year!  This is one the kids can get in on too (minus the alcohol of course). NOTE: I originally saw this recipe via The Venue Report, but have adapted it slightly to make it my own!

Follow these simple steps to make your own champagne ice cream floats!

Ok friends, this recipe could not be easier! And who doesn’t love breaking out some of your glassware you don’t get to use that often?!  

  • Follow the instructions on the package for melting your white chocolate chips. 
  • Dip the rim of each glass into the melted chocolate chips.  You may have to roll the rim of the glass to make sure you get the chocolate all the way around the glass. 
  • If you’re doing this with the kiddos, now is when you want to dip the cones as well!
  • Begin shaking your choice of sprinkles on the glasses (and cones).  I did this directly over the bowl of melted chocolate chips to make for easier clean up. 
  • Scoop two scoops of ice cream into each of the glasses.  Hudsonville SuperScoop is a fun colorful ice cream with a blend of luscious swirls of thick, creamy Black Cherry, Blue Moon, and classic Vanilla.  Perfect for this New Years Eve treat!
