Root Beer Floats
Shake, shimmer, and roll! This dessert breaks the mold -the Jell-O mold, that is!
Why This Recipe Works
For an interesting twist on traditional gelatin, we decided to make root beer gelatin and create a recipe for a "root beer float" without ice cream. Simmering a portion of the root beer with the gelatin, then mixing it with the remaining root beer and chilling the result easily created root beer gelatin. To mimic ice cream in this Root Beer Float recipe, we whipped heavy cream and sugar, then layered it between scoops of the root beer gelatin.
