The boardwalk reminds us of sandy summer feet skipping along hot wooden planks towards snacks and cold drinks. These always erred on the side of fast food -- hot dogs, salty fries, ice cream, funnel cakes -- but it was more than alright, because we were young and on vacation. We could have ice cream before dinner and run around on the beach to shake off the sugar rush.

Even if you're stuck at home this summer, don't worry -- you can still enjoy your favorite boardwalk fare from the comfort of your own kitchen. Though the flavors might not be exactly the same, these options are a homemade way to indulge your inner child. Try the recipes below -- we recommend that you eat them outside for an authentic experience.
