This past weekend, we had some our family in town. It was so nice spending quality time together. We usually hit the theme parks, but decided to have a more low key visit this year and do something more relaxing. So Saturday we took the boat out on the river and stopped at the springs. It was a beautiful day and despite a few rain showers, we had great weather.
When we got back home, we were all craving ice cream, so I decided to put something special together. I took a box of my favorite ice cream bars, Blue Bunny, and with a little Cool Whip and chocolate sprinkles, and made a little magic. This is the easiest little frozen cake and took me all of maybe 5 minutes to put together.
I thought this was also a great way to celebrate Ice Cream and Novelties Month, which is this month! I started this cake by just unwrapping all the ice cream sandwiches. I put four on the bottom, spread on some Cool Whip and then added 4 more ice scream sandwiches and more Cool Whip. To top things off, I just added a few chocolate sprinkles. Now how easy is that!
You can change this cake up by using chopped up Oreo cookies, colorful sprinkles or chocolate syrup and M&M’s. You can even use some fresh berries, yum! Also, you change the size to make an even bigger cake for a larger crowd or maybe even a summer birthday party. You’re only limited by your imagination!
With my ongoing EasyHomeMeals.com and the NFRA (National Frozen & Refrigerated Foods Association) I wanted to share a quick and easy dessert treat to help keep your family cool this summer. This is a great time to check out all the frozen treats available in your grocer’s freezer.
Don’t forget that frozen foods aren’t limited to just ice cream. There’s also healthy produce, perfectly-portioned meals, a variety of ethnic cuisines and dishes to meet strict dietary needs.
