There is nothing more universally loved than an ice cream toppings bar! Not only can you totally personalize it, but there is so much to choose from that everyone can find a combo they love. Win-win! This board is all about the toppings, so pick a few of your favorite ice creams to go alongside and have a party–an ice cream party! You can even make your own ice cream if you’re fancy like that (give this mango sorbet a go!). If you’re looking for something a little more low-maintenance, you can try this Ice Cream Sandwich Board (just be sure to serve immediately).
