Every month, Food Network Magazine puts chefs from Food Network Kitchens to the test: Create new recipes made with common supermarket products like pretzels and ice cream cones.

There are numerous brands of root beer available to consumers, and no one recipe is the same. Ingredients like allspice, birch bark, vanilla bean and licorice give this classic drink a unique taste that pairs so well with vanilla ice cream. This month, Claudia Sidoti and Dave Mechlowicz are tackling and transforming the sweet, carbonated soda pop into a cake and grown-up root beer float.
