Planning even the smallest of parties requires time, effort, patience and an eye for detail. You know the drill; the theme is chosen first then the intricate web of party pieces start spinning.
As parties go, dessert is the star of the show. And let’s be honest, a party without Casper’s FatBoy Ice Cream is just a meeting. For your next celebration why not take it up a notch and transform dessert into more than just a sweet ending to a great event by making the dessert into an activity focal point?
How? Create a FatBoy bar! This is easy to do and as versatile as the crowd that arrives when you announce FatBoy is on the menu. Read on for a few ideas on using FatBoy to make party throwing easy, delicious and memorable.
Organizing Your FatBoy Bar
To make a FatBoy bar, simply place a line-up of toppings and sundae syrups in small bowls or jars. Be sure you have bowls wide enough so your guests can easily dip their FatBoy Sandwich into the toppings.
While the iconic Casper’s vanilla ice cream sandwich is a good neutral flavor, ready to be dressed up in any crazy topping, don’t forget many of your favorite toppers would pair beautifully with our other ice cream sandwich flavors. How fun would it be to this activity with our Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich?
FatBoy Bar Toppings
Topping choices are endless and any crushed or mini candies adhere best to the creamy center of our FatBoys. A simple stroll down the candy and baking aisle will rev up more than enough inspiration.
Some suggestions that will work fabulously:
- Chocolate chips
- Butterscotch chips
- Peanut butter chips
- Any sprinkle
If your favorite candy doesn’t come mini or crushed simply give it a quick chop. Sundae Syrup choices aren’t exactly skimpy either. Be sure to include the classics such as hot fudge, caramel and strawberry. Then wow them with unexpected syrup flavors like marshmallow and pineapple. Yum!
Things To Consider For Your FatBoy Bar
When setting up your bar consider your party crowd. If you’re celebrating for a younger child, think of fun vibrant options like colored sprinkles, tiny gummy bears or rainbow candies. Crushed oreos, crushed wafer cookies of any flavor and crushed graham crackers are all kid-friendly choices as well. But really, when ice cream and candy collide who’s not going to be happy?
If your party boy or girl is a little older, consider toppings to appease a more sophisticated palette:: toasted coconut, coffee candies or crushed pistachios, peanuts and pretzels that will add salty to the sweet cream of your FatBoy. If you’re feeling gourmet, how about some cocoa nibs or crushed gingersnaps? Add in unique sundae syrup toppings such as salted caramel, chocolate coconut, or a classic dark chocolate flavor. Truth is, you can be as creative as your mind will allow. You’ll be surprised at the creative candies out there making it easy to get all the details of your party just the way you want it.
If you love the idea of sticking to your theme search for toppings that tie back to your party colors. This is easy to do with specialty candy shops, colored M&M’s and the variety of sprinkles available both at your local grocer.
Keep it Clean and Ooey, Gooey, Go!
And now, the fun part; seeing what your guests create! We all know messy is best when it comes to dessert so don’t forget to begin the assembly line with bowls and end it with utensils and plenty of napkins.
And there it is: no baking is required and no arduous scooping of ice cream necessary; your party people will walk away with a smile on their face and a satisfied sweet tooth.
From our freezer to yours, Party On! You deserve it.
