A people-pleasing dessert that takes no trouble is an ice cream mix-in “bar.” Buy basic ice cream flavors and set out bowls of mix-ins: M&Ms, chopped peppermint patties and peanut butter cups, chocolate and butterscotch chips, mini malt balls, cookie dough, walnuts, almonds, peanuts, pecans, bananas, coconut. Chocolate and caramel sauces can be overkill with mix-ins, but a little whipped cream is a perfect topper. Set the ice cream containers in a punch bowl or other large container full of ice, with a scooper for each flavor, and let your guests help themselves to ice cream, mix-ins and fun. They can layer ice cream and mix-ins, or simply use the mix-ins as toppings.
