These may be mini but have major flavor! Mini Root Beer Floats are a family favorite. Alright... I admit....Mini Root Beet Floats are a favorite of some of our family. Some of us (who will remain nameless) would like a 32 oz. Root Beer Float instead of a 2 oz. Root Beer Float. I don't understand that thinking...DUH... the mini ones are cuter! Plus, there is little to no guilt eating a mini float. I am in to no guilt these days!
My favorite part to these little guys is the crushed Root Beer Barrels on top. They give the float an increadable Root Beer taste! I put a handful of Root Beer Barrels in a plastic baggie and give it a couple of hard slams whit my mallet. The crushed Root Beer Barrels are so deliciously spicy they give the float a extra needed KICK! Sprinkle the bits of barrel liberally on top of the foam. They are obviously heavier than the foam and will crush the foam...don't freak out...just re-pour a little more Root Beer on top. The foam will rise to the occasion again leaving the bits of barrel on top. Delicious! I LOVE the little crunchy bits of Root Beer Barrel you get right at the end of the Float. They are KILLER good! Happy Floating! :]
