Summer is all about relaxing. That’s why themotherboard.com is collecting tips and ideas to keep summer simple. If you’re having company over or are just wanting to make something sweet, surprise your kids and guests with these delicious ice cream treats that are super simple to make.
Crunchy Ice Cream
Forget the cones? No big deal, replace it with cereal and let the kids help crush up their toppings.
Choose any flavor of ice cream and roll it in crushed-up cereal (or just sprinkle the cereal over the top for less mess). I like Kellogg’s® Corn Pops because it tastes just like a cone and adds a fun crunch to each bite. You can also use graham crackers instead of cereal.
Ice Cream Sandwiches
Serve delicious chocolate chip mint ice cream cookies at your next party, here’s how:
Scoop mint ice cream onto one cookie and then place another cookie on top to create a sandwich. Wrap the ice cream sandwich in plastic wrap and place in the freezer to set up. You can also use vanilla wafers or brownies instead of a cookie.
Upside-Down Mini-Ice Cream Cakes
Get “fancy” without much work by using cupcake materials to make ice cream cakes.
Place paper cupcake holders in a cupcake pan (the pan will help the paper hold its shape). Then layer in at least 3 different kinds of ice cream on top of each other. Place cupcake pan in freezer so your ice cream cakes can set up. When ready to serve, simple dump your cupcake paper upside down and take the paper off. You’ll have a cute little layered ice cream cake. You can garnish with chocolate syrup, cherries, anything you want!
Yum Hope you’re enjoying your summer!
