Paper & Stitch Turns 6! Time for Ice Cream.

6 Unique Ice Cream Toppings

Tomorrow is the last day of national ice cream month and I couldn’t resist posting one last ice cream idea before July is over. I’m going to miss you national ice cream month!

This month is also my blog birthday… Paper & Stitch is now officially six years old! So, I put together six DIY ice cream topping ideas to celebrate. One topping for each year P&S has been around. Hope you’ll grab a sweet treat and celebrate with me.

Here are 6 unique ice cream toppings to celebrate the last two days of national ice cream month (and my blog b-day)…

Fruit Pebbles + Ice Cream

1. Fruity Pebbles – The most colorful ice cream topping / cereal ever created. Better than sprinkles, if you ask me.

Polka Dot Ice Cream

2. Lemonheads – These are just fun. Polka dot ice cream? Come on. You know you want to try this.

Lucky Charms Ice Cream

3. Dehydrated Marshmallows – AKA the only reason why anyone buys Lucky Charms cereal. You can pick the marshmallows out of the cereal box, or order a bag of just marshmallows from Amazon and fulfill your childhood fantasy. No regrets.

Unusual Ice Cream Toppings // Wasabi Peas

4. Wasabi Peas – Okay this is the weird one of the group, but it’s an interesting combo with ice cream. Salty and sweet. And a little bit spicy.

Watermelon ice cream

5. Watermelon Sour Gummies – It’s still summer, after all, so I needed a little watermelon in the mix.

Fancy Licorice Ice Cream

Unusual Ice Cream Toppings // Licorice

6. Fancy Licorice – If you remember this post, you know I’m partial to these pretty candies. And I really like licorice. So it’s a win-win for me.

Birthday Ice Cream Cone

…And a birthday candle to round things out.

Before I go, though, I wanted to tell you how thankful I am to every single one of you who stops by to read Paper & Stitch each day. I am fully aware that I am super lucky to be doing something I love day after day. And that wouldn’t have ever been possible without you. For real. Your support means so much to me! So THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. You’re the best!!!

Congrats on 6 years!!!!
Love these ice creams. They are so you, and so wonderful. Next time we have ice cream cones, I will totally think of you and use a topping that is slightly different.
