National Ice Cream Soda Day

One of the best treats of the summer comes ice cold in a glass. It’s smooth and creamy, yet fizzy and refreshing, and merges today’s hustle and bustle with “the good old days.” Fans of floats, ice cream sodas, brown cows, spiders or whatever you call them in your region, take today to celebrate your favorite ice cream soda recipes, like the ones below.

Ain’t No Mountain High Enough

Have you ever ordered Red Robin’s Mountain High Mudd Pie desert and wished you knew the recipe so that you could make it at home for your family and friends? Well, I found it so I am going to share it with you.  You will need about seven hours to make this (mainly due to the freezing process), so be prepared for that.  The recipe will feed about 12, which is perfect if you want to make it for a birthday cake or a party desert. You can also freeze the leftovers in a sealed container for up to two weeks.
