Note or Comments

Looked at this recipe a few times before making it. When I finally made it for a family gathering it was the first dessert gone.

I have made it at least 8 times now and it always a hit. It can be a little runny, but I have noticed that if you use an electric beater to mix it firms up better.

Also, I use slightly less milk and slightly more root beer to get more of a root beer taste. Also does set up better if you freeze it overnight and let it thaw in the fridge the next day.

I have also tweaked the recipe a bit and made this with orange soda a few times and that has been a big hit as well, it tastes like a creamsicle. Really a family favorite.
