Look, What Nestlé Kitchens Cooking for You

This summer, let refreshing desserts take center stage at backyard picnics, barbecues and Fourth of July festivities. The advice comes from Nestlé.

Can’t get enough of ice cream sundaes? Try a freshly baked pan cookie or “skookie.” Toppings are customizable but we love to go classic with vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup, the company says. You can watch the video demo with Chris Garboski, head of Nestlé Kitchens.

As a shortcut, try making ice cream sandwiches with ready-to-bake Toll House Refrigerated Cookie Dough and your favorite ice cream flavor. Then freeze for anytime treats – they’re also perfect for last-minute guests!

‘Tis the season for fresh fruit! Take advantage of the abundance of in-season produce by visiting farmer’s markets and local grocers. Enjoy your bundle of colorful berries with a dollop of sweetened whipped topping flavored with lime.

If you like to save room for dessert, this delicious Caramel Macchiato Ice Cream Pie is a crowd pleaser. A combination of smooth coffee ice cream, Dulce de Leche, Nestlé Toll House chocolate morsels and an almond graham cracker crust creates a delightfully grown-up taste.
