WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP – Bunker Hill Middle School German students in Mr. Mike McCloskey’s classes recently created recipes for a traditional German treat that looks like savory but tastes like a sweet.


As the kickoff to a project on German recipes, Herr McCloskey helped the students make “Spaghettieis” – ice cream in the form of spaghetti – in class. The treat was created in the German city of Mannheim in the late 1960s.


After enjoying the dessert goodness, the students researched their own recipe and created a recipe card for that dish in German.
