It's almost that time again, if you consider cold treats to be a seasonal thing--time for ice cream and all those other tasty frozen treats! And if you're looking for ideas to make at home, Food52 has all the ideas you need. From ideas for no-churn ice creams to boozy ice cream treats, from milkshakes to popsicles to ice cream sandwiches, Food52 Ice Cream and Friends has it all.

And I do mean that this cookbook has it all. Not just the frozen treats, but all the accoutrements--magic shell, sugar cones, old-fashioned hot fudge, balsamic butterscotch, and even sprinkles. Yes, they include a recipe for sprinkles. You can add whatever flavor or color you like, because they're your very one homemade sprinkles! How cool is that?

And because it's Food52, they know all the ins and outs of making ice cream. Did your ice cream base break? They know how to fix it. They know how to temper chocolate so the texture is perfect for mixing it into ice cream. They know how best to store it, what kind of shelf life it has, and how to fix it when it gets too melty. They even have tips for dealing with that nemesis of all the frosty summer treats, The Brain Freeze.
