International Ice-Cream Month – Let’s Party!

My Dearest Readers, it’s now July and it’s getting seriously cold in Melbourne…on Tuesday when I went to work it was only 4 degrees! But that won’t stop be from eating ice-cream and guess what it’s actually International Ice-Cream Month! Yup it actually exists :) I didn’t know that myself, until Harry’s Ice-Cream and Keep Left PR contacted me and asked if I was interested in hosting an Ice-cream party with everything provided, ice-cream (of course) and all the different types of toppings I wanted!

I most definitely could not turn this offer down :D Now you all know I can eat ice-cream for dinner, but I’m not sure Mr Bao or my friends would appreciate that, so I decided to double it up and make it a dinner party followed by an ice-cream party! So for dinner we decided to have a Shanghainese themed pot luck and we all made a dish.

Shanghainese Themed dinner

We made pork and vegetable wontons, not sure if it’s really Shanghainese but they some how felt like they fitted ~

Pork and Veggie Wonton

I’m not sure if anyone is interested in the recipe, it’s one that Mr Bao’s grandma uses and we love it! I love eating it with chilli oil the hotter the better! Let me know if you’d like the recipe and we will post it ~

Lion's heat meatball

Lion’s head meatball

Our friend Momo made Lion’s head meatball, they got their name because of their shape which resembles a lion not really sure where that came from but haha anyhow these are not just any lion’s head, these have a secret inside! If you follow me on Instagram you will already know hehe, Momo put quail eggs inside! Which made it extra tasty!

Mini Oreos, chocolate chips, marshmallows, sprinkles, assorted M&Ms, desiccated coconut, Nutella and Gingersnap cookies :) What’s some of your favourite toppings?

Sticky Date Pudding and Pavlova Ice-cream

Sticky Date Pudding and Pavlova Ice-cream

We all started with a scoop of Sticky Date Pudding and Pavlova with passionfruit and was free to add any toppings we wanted.

Whats your favourite topping?

I dressed my ice-cream with mini Oreos, I reckon their better than the original ones, crispier hehe assorted M&M’s and of course some 100s and 1000s to finish off ~ I think all the toppings worked really well with the ice-cream not overpowering the flavours.

Double Sticky Date!

Double Sticky Date!

Very lucky to have friends who are chef ;) was half persuaded and half forced to make her famous sticky date pudding paired with Harry’s Sticky Date Pudding Ice-cream plush that amazing butterscotch sauce. And that’s how we ended up with Double Sticky Date pudding dessert, and trust me it will not be the last time I do this, I loved the intense date flavour and surprisingly it wasn’t actually that sweet, Mr Bao agrees too.

Thank you Harry’s Ice-cream and KeepLeft PR my friends and I had so much fun with the ice-cream party at home and we can’t wait to do it again, perhaps by then it will be warmer and we’ll have a barbecue and the part outside ~ If you haven’t tried Harry’s Ice-cream before they are currently sold at Woolworths, Foodland and IGA for all stockists refer to this link.

Daisy@Nevertoosweet and friends was sent Harry’s Ice-cream and Keep Left PR to try and review. All opinions areย my own and honest.ย

    I wish I’d been at your ice cream party! All the food looks amazing. I’ve never heard of lion meatballs and I’m relieved there’s no lion in them! I will look out for the ice cream at my IGA xx

    An ice-cream party sounds like an awesome idea, ice-cream is perfect at any time of year! I also like crushed cookies on ice cream, but my favourite would definitely be hot fudge sauce! Your wontons look very dainty and tasty – I would definitely be interested in the recipe :)

    There’s nothing better than an ice cream party in the middle of winter because your ice cream won’t melt! Hahah looks delish though, especially the double sticky date pudding one!
