To make a chocolate float, substitute cola and chocolate extract for root beer and root beer extract. Use Blue Bunny® Premium Chocolate or Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream instead of Vanilla. Garnish root beer float with whipping cream and maraschino cherry. Use premium Blue Bunny® Quick Blend™ for a faster-blended float.


Don't let the ice cream sit out too long. It loses flavor and texture if allowed to melt too much.
