It’s ice cream season and I have the perfect addition to literally top off your favorite Turkey Hill Dairy ice cream – a peanut butter magic shell!
Obviously I kind of have a thing for desserts, and with the weather finally agreeing with the calendar telling us it’s almost summer I have been digging into all the ice cream. And since the rest of the country is probably on the same wavelength, Turkey Hill Dairy launched the Good Mooed Tour in select U.S. states spanning the East Coast to the Midwest.
On their tour they will be handing out free ice cream samples for you to try along with the giant cow for a great photo-op. This past weekend they were spotted at Rock on the Range here in Columbus, OH! Want to find the giant cow and enjoy some delicious ice cream? The cow will be at Taste of Cincinnati on May 27 and then in the Detroit area June 11-19th. More tour dates are being added! Find out more online at https://www.turkeyhill.com/events/good-mooed-tour. Also visit the Dairy online at www.TurkeyHill.com, on Facebook, or on Twitter (@TurkeyHillDairy).
Turkey Hill Dairy makes a high-quality all natural ice cream in Lancaster County, PA, using only the simplest of ingredients, like milk, cream, sugar, and natural flavors for unforgettable richness. (Turkey Hill’s All Natural Homemade Vanilla contains just four ingredients!) There’s also no artificial colors, no artificial flavoring, and no stabilizers. It’s ice cream the way it used to be made when Turkey Hill first started, more than 80 years ago. With these simple ingredients they are able to make 20 different all natural flavors including classics like Vanilla Bean and Belgian Style Chocolate, and fruit-infused favorites like Blueberry, Mango, and Blackberry Swirl.
For a little history lesson, Turkey Hill Dairy was founded in 1931 by Armor Frey, with the ideals of hard work and dedication to the community. Armor started by selling milk to friends and neighbors in Lancaster County and a few years later used extra milk to make ice cream! Years later this modest dairy farm and milk delivery route has grown into one of the nation’s leading producers of ice cream. Their products are available in 49 states and a dozen different countries!
Their high availability means it was easy to locate at a store near me, so I scooped up a carton to share a fun and easy recipe for you. You know those coatings that freeze on top of cold ice cream, resulting in a shell? I made a peanut butter version that was the perfect addition to the vanilla bean ice cream – not that I wouldn’t eat it straight up but I cannot resist an excuse to consume peanut butter. All you need is peanut butter and coconut oil and you have all you need to make your own magic shell!
