Knockoff Frozen Butterbeer

Knockoff Frozen Butterbeer

Last August we went on a vacation of a lifetime. It was one of the best trips we have ever taken and we LOVED every minute of it!

Being a blogger has presented several great opportunities and this trip was one of them! When I lived in Utah I got to know the ladies behind Mom It Forward, a blogger network that brings bloggers and brands together. At the beginning of the year I was at a small local event, chatting with Jyl, when I mentioned that for Christmas we had given our family a jar full of bills and coins to start saving up for a trip to Disneyland. She told me about their blogger retreat for families, Family Forward, and I was SOLD!

I know it’s been months since the retreat but I still want to do several posts about the trip so bear with me- one post will NOT do it justice!!

Today, I’m sharing my knockoff frozen butterbeer recipe. We consumed gallons of the stuff in Orlando and went through withdrawal when we got home. It was sad. When I found myself researching the cost of purchasing a real slurpee machine I gave myself an intervention. You will find the results below…

I eyeballed all the amounts for this recipe. You many prefer more of less butterscotch flavoring. You can always half this recipe to test it out and adjust it to your preferences! I included amounts but again, I didn’t measure!

Frozen Butterbeer

1 litre cream soda
1/3 c. butterscotch ice cream topping

Gently pour 1 litre cream soda in a large rectangular pan or dish (I used a plastic food storage bin) and squeeze about 1/3 cup butterscotch ice cream topping over the top. DO NOT STIR. Put in the freezer.

For the next 3-4 hours, pull the pan out and scrape the mixture with a fork. After an hour or so the mixture will start to freeze so when you scrape you will be creating a delicious slushy. You want the ice crystals to be fine so scrape well but quickly- it starts to melt fast!

Butterscotch Whipped Cream

1/2 pint Heavy Whipping Cream
1/4 c. Butterscotch Ice Cream Topping

In a mixing bowl stir together 1/2 pint heavy whipping cream with 1/4 cup butterscotch topping. Whisk until soft peaks form.

Pour the frozen butterbeer into a glass, top with butterscotch whipped cream, and enjoy!
