Ice Cream Tacos | #icecreamtaco #dessert #bsinthekitchen

As many of you may have already read from Bob’s Beer Can Chicken post, we were recently back on CTV Morning Live with our good friend and fabulous anchor (and apparently my twin – as I was stopped at a local coffee shop later that afternoon asking if I co-hosted the morning news!), Stephanie Massicotte. Bob covered the savoury dish with his chicken, so I was back tackling the sweets with these ice cream tacos. These tacos are so fun and simple, so don’t hold back the reins. Be fully creative and see what kind of ice cream tacos your imagination can come up with! Read on for the easy, and kid friendly, recipe.

Now, I have to thank Bob for styling and taking these photos because they are beautiful! Especially since I thought the ice cream tacos didn’t turn out 110% the way I wanted them (I know… tisk risk – I’m still, and likely always will be, learning not to be such a perfectionist), but in the end they looked good, but more importantly tasted great as credited by numerous sources.
