Instead of putting ice cream in your root beer to make a root beer float, put the root beer in your ice cream! Made with root beer creme flavored Oreos and root beer syrup.
You would think with my root beer obsession that it would also include root beer floats. You would be wrong in this assumption. I prefer root beer to be served in a cold glass, untarnished by any other ingredients. However I have discovered that I do enjoy it cooked into sloppy joes, pulled pork, brownies, and chocolate cake. So when I passed by a display of the newest Oreo flavors I couldn’t resist snatching up a package of the root beer float creme flavored golden Oreos. It took me awhile to decide what to make and ended up throwing them into yet another no-churn ice cream recipe. And guess what? I freaking loved it! Apparently as far as root beer float flavored desserts go, I am sold. I even made a root beer syrup which is just root beer cooked down. Maybe I should revisit an actual root beer float?
P.S. This recipe was also inspired by my upcoming trip to Seattle with Kita to visit Peabody next month! We’re going on a root beer (and any other spectacular foods we can get our hands on) adventure!
