Now that it's finally starting to look and feel like spring, it's time to enjoy ice cream outdoors.  Carvel America’s Freshest Ice Cream® is celebrating the beginning of spring with a new flavor - Salted Caramel.

"Salted Caramel is the salty-sweet combination Americans have come to love and Carvel® has launched an all-new salted caramel flavor featuring deliciously creamy caramel ice cream and a hint of salt just in time for the warmer temperatures."  I learned of the news, and was first in line to try the new flavor.  The flavor was just as promised; that deliciously creamy caramel we all love with a hint of salt.    I got to try it in soft serve form, since they were in the middle of mixing and freezing to have ready for the next day.
Now through June 29, you can try this new flavor in a variety of ways;   including Salted Caramel Soft Serve (the way I had it) and Fresh Scooped Salted Caramel with bits of Heath Toffee Bar  packed inside.

"Carvel® is also offering the new flavor in its signature on-the-go ice cream treat, the Salted Caramel Heath Sundae Dasher™, which features salted caramel soft serve ice cream with multiple layers of delicious Heath milk chocolate toffee bar chunks, drizzled with caramel sauce and topped with whipped cream." I have yet to try it in this way, but will be back to give it a go.  Carvel® will be celebrating it's 80th Anniversary so look for more new flavors and promotions including giveaways contests, fundraisers and more during their "80 Days of Summer" celebration.
Many delicious freshly made flavors are waiting for you...
Along with delicious custom cakes ready for order...

Allergen free milk chocolate filled with pink marshmallows.

All made possible by the Good Cook Spring Silicone Chocolate and Bark mold.  

Seriously adorable, and easy to make. 

I melted top allergen free chocolate chips in the microwave for about a minute long, stirring halfway. 
It should look like this. 
Spread the melted chocolate with the adorable spring spatula, find it on the Good Cooks spring tools section.  
We look for the allergen friendly marshmallows, and have had luck with Kraft marshmallows before.  According to the ingredients it should be safe for most top allergens.  To go along with the spring theme, I chose the pink marshmallows.  Although after trying it out, I do recommend the original white marshmallows instead.  If you want color, just use some natural food coloring instead.  The flavor and consistency was just not the same.  
While the chocolate hardened up in the freezer.  I melted the marshmallows in the microwave as well.  I spread the marshmallow filling over the hardened chocolate.  
I took more melted chocolate and spread it out all over the top.  Then topped with allergen free rice crispy cereal.  *I would recommend putting the layer of cereal under the chocolate and over the marshmallow layers, the chocolate hardened up too fast and the cereal didn't stick too well.  The cereal gives extra crunch, and balances out the sweet in the chocolate and marshmallow filling.  It should taste like a fun version of smores.   
When you have food allergies it's hard to find treats that are safe, and even harder to find treats that look and taste good.  I'm glad to find products like this and share them with you all that make it fun and easy for everyone.
