Grasshopper Soda Float

Mint and chocolate. Need I say more? I happen to love the combination in all sorts of dessert forms – cheesecake, brownies, etc. For today’s treat I thought a grasshopper soda float would be a fun take on the frozen pie.

While you can buy chocolate soda, it is super easy to make your own by stirring together chocolate syrup and club soda.

A few scoops of mint chocolate chip ice cream is added to the bottom of a tall glass (preferably narrow to trap the fizz) and the chocolate soda is poured on top to create the deliciously simple dessert. Dig in with a tall spoon and a straw or two. In my house the kids barely came up for air, attempting to drink the grasshopper soda float in one sip. The adults showed a bit of restraint and managed to stretch their consumption to a few gulps. I think I have found a new summertime favorite treat!
