Root Beer Float Bar

Root beer float bar

This root beer float bar is perfect for your summer family fun nights or BBQs.

When I think of some of my favorite childhood summer memories I think of nights at the drive-in, ice cream for dinner, swimming in the pool and catching fireflies. I long to get back to those simple times and give my kids those summers that I had. Scroll down to see my root beer float bar and more vintage summer ideas from some of my friends. Every Friday night we have our Friday night pizza nights followed by a movie. In the summer if it’s a nice night we will set up an outdoor movie on the deck. I made this root beer float bar for a special treat during our movie. It reminded me of being at the drive-ins!

Root Beer Float Bar Fixings

Some other fun and different root beer float variations:

  • Make a boozy peanut butter float peanut butter cup ice cream and with peanut butter flavored whiskey.
  • For the coffee lover use coffee flavored ice cream!
  • For a healthier option if you like bananas, freeze some bananas then blend with a little bit of milk of your choice until an ice cream consistency and use for your float.

I added some decor I had around the house just to make it feel a little more fancy, like my chalkboard and cake stand.

Some tips-

  • If not making and enjoying right away, you may want to have a galvanized bucket of ice and keep the root beer and ice cream on ice.
  • Use small bowls for things like sprinkles, nuts, marshmallows and chocolate chips.
  • For the sauces, whipped cream and cherries, just put out in their original containers or jars.

3.) Roll dough into a small ball, about 1 inch, press into your hand to flatten and then press into the muffin pan going up the sides. Tip – You can also use the bottom of a small shot glass to give you a perfect cup shape.

4.) Repeat with the remaining dough until the muffin tin tray is full.

5.) Bake for about 8-10 minutes, until the edges are slightly golden.

6.) Allow to cool, then remove from pan and place on a cooling rack. I used a butter knife along the edges to help me get them out of the pan.

7.) When ready to serve, place the cookie cups on a large serving platter or dish and fill with your toppings of choice. I used whipped cream and lemon curd and topped with fresh berries.
