Coca-Cola Cake a la mode and Mini Coke Floats

coca cola cake #shop #cbiasAhhh, Coca-Cola….my most favorite drink EVER! I love this drink and have it just about every day. I love that Coke is doing their Share a Coke campaign, and I wanted to share my Coke with my family in some unique ways, so I first made this Coca-Cola Cake a la mode to share with my family and friends.coca cola cake a la mode #shop #cbiasIMG_20140628_184111_559

This little dessert is rich in flavor and perfect served warm with some ice cream on top. It’s made from scratch and made from love. So delicious! Before I show you the next thing I did to share a Coke, I just had to say how much I love that they  have bottles of different people’s names on the 20 oz Coke bottles  at Walmart. I also saw that they had bottles that say “Share a Coke with Family” and “Share a Coke with Friends”, so I picked a few of those up for the two recipes I made. That’s what I was doing, so why not?! Oh and during this Share a Coke promotion, head over to Walmart where they will be having a Share a Coke demo in their stores On July 6. Check here to see if your local store is participating!mini coke floats #shop #cbias

I wanted to do something cute and fun with my girls, so I made them (and myself) some Miniature Coke Floats. I absolutely love Coke floats and I wanted them to try them as well, but in a much smaller portion. I found these mini Coke glasses at our local dollar store and they were the perfect amount for them (and for me too).Miniature Coke Floats #shop #cbias

These little mini Coke Floats are the perfect cool treats for summer and were perfect little memory creators for the kids because it made them feel very fancy drinking out of real glasses. To make these, all you do is put 2-3 scoops of ice cream in a frosted mini Coke glass, top it off with Coke, add a straw and consume. That’s it!

And be sure to check out the recipe for my Coca-Cola Cake below. It’s definitely something you want to make and share with others. So Good!
