  • Desired amount of ice cold quality gourmet root beer
  • Desired amount and flavors of ice cream see suggestions in post above
  • Desired amount of mason jars
  • Good quality dark chocolate chips 12oz covers about 8-10 mason jars
  • sea salt


  1. Melt chocolate according to package instructions.
  2. When melted stir and tilt bowl so chocolate goes to one side.
  3. Swirl the top of the mason jar in chocolate, use your finger to smooth chocolate around the rim.
  4. Before chocolate begins to firm up, sprinkle with sea salt.
  5. Allow to sit for a few minutes, so the chocolate just begins to harden.
  6. Scoop ice cream into jar, pour root beer over and serve!
