Tip of the Day for 18″ Doll Collectors

Throughout the country, everyone is dealing with a major heat wave! Here is a simple recipe to help you and your American girl stay cool. It only requires 2 ingredients, is easy to make, and really fun to enjoy! This is a treat that my mother made for my brothers and me and I have been making it for my children for years. Stay cool and enjoy!

Chocolate Ice:

Ingredients: 1 large can of chocolate syrup, 1 1/2 cup water and an aluminum pan…a brownie or bread/loaf pan is usually what I use.

Mix the chocolate and water together. Freeze and periodically, “mash” the ice as it begins to freeze. Scoop and enjoy. It is so refreshing and chocolaty, that you might forget the heat…as least while you are eating!

As a reader of American Girl blogs, do you live in one of the 12 cities where there are currently American Girl retail stores? Have you ever made a visit to one of the retail stores? I have had the opportunity to visit both the New York and Chicago stores. What an adventure! You can see the smiles on children’s faces from miles away! The excitement is palpable and once you enter the building you become intoxicated with the landscape…everything American Girl Doll®! The displays, the dolls, the theater…tea parties, hair salons and electricity fills the air. If you are a doll collector, you should make a point to visit the nearest retail outlet. It is an experience you won’t soon forget. If you just can’t make the trip, you can find great clothes to fit the American girl on My Doll’s Life.
