Ice Cream Ornaments

Oh man, the mother of all snow storms is hitting us. Yesterday, not a flake of snow on the ground.
This is what I woke up to this morning:
This blizzard is supposed to drop an entire 14 inches on us. Oh well, that's what you get for living in the U.P.

In honor of the area starting to FINALLY look festive, I have a fun, festive treat to share with you.
Ice Cream Ornaments
This one's perfect if you have kiddos.
-Ice cream (I used vanilla)
-Twizzlers Pull N Peel
-Mini Resses peanut butter cups
-Wax paper
-Cookie sheet
1. Lay out a sheet of wax paper on your cookie sheet.
2. Scoop some ice cream into a ball and place on your cookie sheet (try to make it as round as possible!)
3. Stick it in the freezer while you are getting the other parts ready.
4. Start making the tops. Unwrap a peanut butter cup and turn it upside down.
5. Make two holes on the top with a skewer.
6. Break off a piece of Twizzler and shove each end into the holes.
7. Pop those into the freezer also, to harden.
8. Once you have waited about 30 minutes, get the sprinkles set for your kids (or yourself!). Bring out the cookie sheet.
9. Let them go nuts!
10. Refreeze if you are using them for a party, or let everyone dig in right away! This is what ours looked like in the end:
Festive, right?
Now I'm about to throw on my shoes (because for some reason I haven't owned boots since I was 10........dumb......) and I'm going out to shovel the porches and driveway for a free workout! Toodles!


  1. I didn't know where you were going with this at first -- so cute! And original!

  2. Those are so cute! I was wondering how in the world you were going to make ornaments out of ice cream and hang them on the tree, lol!

  3. lol, it seems that a lot of people were thinking the same!
    Thanks for stopping by!

  4. What a cute, quick and simple idea. I just wish my grandkids were here so I could enjoy doing it with them.

    Merry Christmas & Hugs...Tracy :)

  5. Oh' yeah. I almost forgot. Stay warm and stay safe in all that snow.

    Tracy :)
