Canteen Classics

There are few treats that symbolize summer as vividly as having a frozen pop, cone or ice cream sandwich in hand — most likely on your face and T-shirt, too. If you've ever attended summer camp, then these frozen sweets surely evoke memories of campfire songs and cannonball splashes. The good news is you don't need to chase down an ice cream truck or a camp counselor in order to get your hands on one of these canteen classics. Dive into one of Food Network Kitchen's nostalgic takes on dipped cones, ice pops and more, and be sure to tune in to Camp Cutthroat on Wednesdays at 9|8c beginning August 12, when Alton Brown will take sabotage and unhappy campers to the great outdoors. 

Chocolate-Dipped Ice Cream Cone

Fill chocolate-lined cones with scoops of your favorite ice cream, then use some of the reserved chocolate sauce for dipping. We guarantee this fresh homemade version will far exceed anything from a box or plastic wrapper.

Fireworks Pop

Food Network Kitchen recreates these familiar patriotic ice pops in three tasty layers: pureed frozen strawberries, followed by lemon juice mixed with coconut milk and sweet syrup, and a final layer tinged with blue food coloring. You can use any ice pop mold, but we guarantee the rocket shape will be a big hit with little ones.

The Frozen S'more

Two of summer's iconic desserts — s'mores and ice cream sandwiches — collide in this sweet hybrid. These s'mores contain all the usual players, like graham crackers and melted chocolate, except the toasted marshmallows are chopped and stirred into vanilla ice cream, resulting in a next-level frozen treat.

Frozen Creamy Orange Pop

This ultra-fresh twist on the classic Creamsicle is a more sophisticated way to savor the quintessential summer pairing of orange and sweet cream. Fresh orange juice, honey, Greek yogurt and vanilla extract serve as ideal counterpoints to the artificial flavors you'd find in any store-bought version.
