Making a coke float is easy, right? You just pour a can of coke over some icecream and you are set. But, this week in honor of March Madness and to show support for our favorite team (which is moving to the next level!!), we decided to set up the ultimate Slam Dunk Coke Float bar so each member of the family could customize their coke float. It didn’t take long and was the perfect half time snack!
Slam Dunk Coke Floats
I took a few minutes before the family got home from the days activities to set it up so it would be ready when they were! It didn’t take long to create a fun Slam Dunk Coke Float Bar – complete with basketball decorations and lots of fun toppings and mix-ins so each person could have their favorite flavors and varieties!
How to create a Slam Dunk Coke Float
For our floats, I wanted to offer lots of choices for the family. I picked up as many of the fun toppings as I could think of: sprinkles, whipped cream, cherries, nuts, marshmallows, vanilla icecream and of course the Coca-Cola NCAA® Final Four Pack available at Walmart.
I set it all out so everyone could design their own flavor. Because a coke float just works better with ice cold drinks, I kept them in a large bowl with ice while we were fixing the coke floats!
Every float looks a little more fun with a Go Team flag stuck in the glass. I simply cut some triangle shaped flags, punched two holes and popped them through a bamboo skewer to give our floats a little extra team spirit. Make your own with craft foam and stickers or print our Go Team flags here!
Show your Team Spirit!
What can you do after you finish your coke? Why not pop the tab off and make a quick team spirit bracelet while you are watching the game! Just grab some ribbon in the color of your choice and have it sitting out. The process is simple.
- Pop off the coke tabs (Make sure an adult does this carefully so no one gets hurt)
- You will need 8-10 tabs for a basic adult bracelet.
- Thread your ribbon through both of the holes.
- When it is the right length, just tie it off and slip on your team spirit bracelet!
Who are you rooting for? Do you have your Final Four picked? I’d love to hear your favorite way to enjoy a Slam Dunk Coke Float!
