Pierre’s Coconut Pineapple Angel Food Layer Cake

Coconut Pineapple Angle Food Layer Cake Cropped FinalPierre’s Premium Coconut Pineapple Ice Cream combines delicious coconut pieces and juicy chunks of pineapple for a delightful tropical treat!

For a simple dessert idea, try this refreshing recipe with family and friends:

Ingredients:

  • 1 1.5 Quart container of Pierre’s Premium Coconut Pineapple Ice Cream
  • 1 Angel Food Cake
  • 1 Tub Fluffy White Frosting
  • 1 Can Pineapple Tidbits
  • 1 Cup Shaved Coconut
  • Jellybeans
  • Colored Sugar Sprinkles

While ice cream is tempering, slice angel food cake into 3/4 inch wide slices, drain pineapple can, and cut jellybeans into halves.

Using individual plates, begin by spreading ice cream onto the top side of the bottom cake slice, layer with a second slice and top once more with ice cream.

Ice cream in the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day

St. Patrick’s Day, created to honor Ireland’s patron saint, is also a fun and festive celebration of Irish culture and food! While there is no historical proof as to whether or not St. Patrick ever enjoyed a dish of ice cream, you will most certainly find ice cream on the Emerald Isle.

Emerald Necklace Ice Cream ConeWith that in mind, we picked out a few fun flavors in the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day!

Emerald Necklace:  While there’s no place on Earth quite like the Emerald Isle, the same can be said about our local natural gem … Cleveland Metroparks! Pierre’s Emerald Necklace Premium Ice Cream pays tribute to our hometown park system and celebrates the great outdoors!

Mint Chocolate Chip:  Ireland is a cool place to experience … kind of like a bowl of Pierre’s Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream.

Lime Sherbet:  Like snakes, lime groves are not to be found in Ireland. However, like Irish culture, Pierre’s Lime Pure Fruit Sherbet and ¡Hola Fruta! Margarita Pure Fruit Sherbet are bold and full of flavor.

Rainbow Sherbet: Legend says that at the end of a rainbow is a leprechaun’s pot of gold. Perhaps that’s true, but a pot of Pierre’s Rainbow Sherbet would be just as nice as far as we’re concerned.

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Ice Cream Brownie Bars Recipe

Hand-dipped strawberries are a classic Valentine’s Day treat, but you can enjoy our seasonal Pierre’s Premium Chocolate Covered Strawberry Ice Cream flavor through May. Still, there’s just something so romantic about that decadent pairing of rich chocolate and strawberries, we couldn’t help but put some thought – and some love – into this easy-to-make Valentine-themed dessert idea.Chocolate Covered Strawberry Premium Ice Cream

This layered dessert is elegant enough for a dinner party but so simple to make you might keep a pan of it in your freezer at all times.

Ingredients:

  • Your favorite brownie mix (enough for two 8” square pans or one 9” x 13” pan)
  • 1 1.5 quart container of Pierre’s Premium Chocolate Covered Strawberry Ice Cream
  • Light or nonfat whipped topping
  • Strawberry sundae topping
  • Chocolate syrup

Prepare brownies as directed; let cool. Remove ice cream from freezer for 20 minutes so it’s easier to work with. Spread ice cream on top of the brownie layer until just below the top of the pan and freeze for at least an hour.

Remove pan from freezer and spread a layer of strawberry sundae topping on top of the ice cream. Then, cover with whipped topping. Freeze until it’s time to serve. Cut into squares, plate and drizzle with chocolate syrup.

They’ll love this dessert almost as much as they love YOU for making if for them!
