The "Kitchen Sink" at Jaxson's Ice Cream Parlor in Dania Beach, Florida (established in 1956). This place is ridiculous. If you're ever lucky enough to be in the area, make time to go here! The wait is crazy sometimes (like, line-out-the-door crazy; this place is pretty small!) but it is so worth it. Ice cream done right.

"It all began with a Radio Flyer wagon, an innovative hand-welded machine, and an abiding love for ice cream…. In the pursuit of creating better ice cream, Robyn Sue Fisher spent five years developing a one-of-a-kind ice cream machine, now named “Brrr.” Brrr’s uniqueness stems from its ability to make the smoothest, tastiest ice cream from scratch in 60 seconds. How? Brrr runs on liquid nitrogen. Smitten Ice Cream was born in late 2009 when Robyn Sue hit the streets of San Francisco with an apron and a dream, pulling Brrr atop a souped-up Radio Flyer wagon (complete with off-road wheels and a homemade battery pack). Since then, Robyn Sue has teamed up with pastry chef Robyn Lyn Lenzi. They’re united by the Smitten mission: to make each and every truly decadent scoop to order, using only the freshest, purest, locally sourced and seasonal ingredients. One minute, it’s milk, cream, sugar, and caramelized peaches; the next minute, it’s the smoothest, most flavorful peach ice cream you can imagine. Over its first year, Smitten’s artisan ice cream and magic captivated foodie audiences at Bay Area festivals, corporate shindigs, and high-end events—garnering rave reviews and delighted bellies everywhere they went. Now, Smitten has parked its wagon in San Francisco’s Hayes Valley and transformed a recycled shipping container into an ice cream shop like you’ve never seen before. Your favorite dessert just got better. Prepare to be smitten."

The webseries Welcome to Sanditon, based on Jane Austen's unfinished novel Sanditon, features a plotline in which ice cream shop owner Clara Breton is trying to save her ice cream from being turned into a juice bar. To encourage townspeople to let her keep it around, she shares some videos of creative recipes utilized in her shop for fun and different ways to enjoy ice cream. Here -- the Brownie Sandwich. A great way to alter the recipe would be to use this delicious recipe: www.goodhousekeeping.com for Flourless Caramel Almond Brownies, which would cut out the steps of having to add plain caramel sauce and nuts when you can use a fabulous brownie already including those toppings.
