When I lived in NJ and CT, these sodas could be gotten at just about any soda fountain. Now that I live in OH, I got sick of trying to explain how to make these (here, a "black & white" is a cookie with vanilla and chocolate icing on it), and got my own ingredients.

How To Make black & white ice cream sodas

  • 1
    Place chocolate sauce and milk in the glass you plan to use (at least 12 oz. capacity) and stir well. Pour seltzer water a little less than half full, stir gently. Add ice cream, one scoop at a time. being careful not to overflow glass; stir again (gently). Add more seltzer, if necessary, and top with Redi-Whip if you like.

    Feel free to play around with the amounts of chocolate and milk. A lower-fat version can be made by simply using skim milk and low-fat ice cream. Go ahead and use the Redi-Whip, anyway.
