These Crunchy S’mores Ice Cream Pops are the perfect s’mores inspired ice cream dessert for your family and friends. Full of great flavors, these pops are sure to please!

2015-08-18-6580

The boys and I love to play around with different ice cream combos during the summer. Everyone knows ice cream tastes so much better in the summertime!

I just had to post one more of my favorite ice cream pops on the blog. This ice cream pop is s’mores inspired and delicious!

What do I mean by s’mores inspired? Think of the wonderful flavors of s’mores mixed with a creamy chocolatey ice cream and there you have it! So if you like the familiar flavors of s’mores you will like these, if you’re a s’more lover you will LOVE these!

I decided to make my own little crunchy bits for these pops and am I glad did! Once you taste them you will know exactly what I mean. :)

It’s all about the flavor my friends…and this ice cream pop has a wonderful flavor!

2015-08-18-6553

To make your own s’mores flavored crunchy bits you’re going to need rice krispies (or toasted rice cereal) and Wilton S’mores flavored candy melts.

This is what your cereal and chocolate mixture should look like. Once it dries, you can break it up into pieces and voila, you have your own little s’mores flavored crunchy bits!

These cups are filled about 3/4 full. If you want to fill them more or less feel free.

See how the ice cream pop is just beginning to soften and melt a bit? This is the way we LOVE to eat these pops! So tasty!

Crunchy S’mores Ice Cream Pops

Ingredients:                                           2015-08-18-6580

2 cups Rice Krispies (or any brand of toasted rice cereal)

1 bag (10 oz.) Wilton S’mores flavored candy

1.5 quart container chocolate ice cream

6 chocolate wafer cookies, crushed

1/2 cup marshmallow bits, divided

Additional Items:

Twelve 5-ounce paper cups (Dixie Bathroom Cups work great)

Wooden Popsicle Sticks, or decorative straws

Directions:

1. Place 2 cups of rice krispies into a large glass bowl (you’ll need the room for stirring). Melt the chocolate melts according to instructions on the package. Pour the melted chocolate over the cereal and gently stir well to evenly coat cereal.

2. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper. Pour cereal mixture on to parchment paper, spread out evenly and allow to dry. Once mixture is dry, break into desired pieces. Keep in mind these pieces will be used in an ice cream pop so you don’t want them too large.

3. Take the ice cream out of the freezer and allow to soften for a few minutes. Crush chocolate wafer cookies. Place a small amount of the crushed cookies and marshmallow bits in the bottom of each cup.

4. Scoop the softened ice cream into a large bowl, add the chocolate covered cereal bits and remainder of the marshmallow bits. Stir gently with a large spoon, it doesn’t take much to combine the ingredients. You want the ice cream soft but not completely melted.

5. Spoon the ice cream mixture into the cups. Carefully insert a wooden stick or straw into each cup.

6. Freeze for approximately 2 hours to set.

Makes 12 Servings  

*Note: I learned this today. If you have boys that like to play as boys do, you may want to use popsicle sticks instead of straws. The straws look great, but if you have kids around that like to play or get silly with their food definitely use popsicle sticks! Love my boys…just saying. :)

Have you tried my Flurry Ice Cream Pops yet?

They’re another fun and tasty ice cream pop perfect for summertime!

Pumpkin Spice Brownie Pops

2014-10-16_3362

These Pumpkin Spice Brownie Pops have just become a new favorite in our house! Pumpkin spice, chocolate fudge brownie and milk chocolate make for a wonderful Fall inspired treat!

2014-10-16_3348 Pumpkin Spice Brownie Pops

My Pumpkin Spice Brownie Pops are a fun twist on both brownies and pumpkin spice. These brownie pops are delicious chocolate fudge brownies that are moist and tender and basically enrobed in a wonderful milk chocolate and finished off with a nice touch of pumpkin spice.

What does a nice touch of pumpkin spice mean? So glad you asked. :)

So let’s take it from the top, using pumpkin spice creamer in place of water in the brownie batter creates that perfect hint of wonderful pumpkin spice along with the chocolate fudge flavor. A few simple steps later the brownie pops are dipped in a wonderful milk chocolate coating.

Then there’s another accent of pumpkin spice added to the top of each brownie pop. Yes, it really does taste like pumpkin spice! Then I like to top off my Pumpkin Spice Brownie Pops with some fun sprinkles perfect for the season!

Enjoy, my fellow brownie and pumpkin spice lovers!

My Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Pudding Pops are so much fun for summer! With only a few ingredients, you’ll have a nice cool treat in no time at all!  

Reese's PB Cup Chocolate Pudding Pops_2512

With Summer being here in full swing another cold treat sounded so good! Last week I brought you one of our favorite ice cream pops, today I bring you one of our favorite pudding pops!

Naturally we want to wrap up National Ice Cream Month on a positive note. :)

Of course my kids absolutely love both pudding pops and ice cream pops! Their favorite pop depends upon the day of course. But they truly do love both kinds of pops. After all, what’s not to love?

The pictures of my Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Pudding Pops are a little deceptive. What they don’t tell you is how incredibly yummy these pudding pops actually are! The chunks of chopped peanut butter cup Oreos, the pieces of peanut butter cup minis, and the creamy chocolaty flavor make these pudding pops amazing!!

Let’s take a look at how to create these wonderful icy treats!

PBPP_2516

So, the other day I bought a pack of the somewhat-new Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Oreos. I thought they would be fun try. Not only that, my kids seem to have a never ending desire for more Oreos!

I will be honest with you guys, I wasn’t expecting much. However, I can honestly say they were REALLY good!

I knew almost instantly they needed to be incorporated into some type of cold treat, so that’s what I did!

PBPP_2518

Please keep in mind, the finely chopped Oreos on the bottom of the cup, therefore the bottom of the pudding pop are completely optional. Feel free to make them however you want to!

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Oreos for the IN the pudding pops = COARSELY chopped, or broken into pieces.

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Oreos for the BOTTOM of the cups = FINELY chopped.

Yes, it really does make a difference. :)

PBPP_2514

When serving tear of the cups. If desired, add a few mini chocolate chips right before serving. ENJOY!

3. In the bottom of each cup place a small amount of finely chopped Oreos, or you can skip this step. Pour desired amount into each paper cup and insert your wooden popsicle sticks

4. You can added a few mini chocolate chips if you would like, or you can do this before serving, if desired. Freeze for approximately 2 hours to set.

5. Tear off paper cups to serve. To add a few more mini chocolate chips, allow pops to sit out for just a couple of minutes and sprinkle with desired amount of mini chocolate chips. This step is completely optional.

My Flurry Ice Cream Pops make the prefect quick ice cream dessert any day or night of the week!

FICP_DSCN2312

My son the ice cream monster named these Flurry Ice Cream Pops because they kind of, sort of, remind him of a blended ice cream treat he orders whenever given the chance. This kids LOVES his ice cream, and is very particular about can be mixed into it.

It’s kind of nice to have someone like that around because he can tell me in a millisecond if a flavor combo sounds good, and he’s almost always right!

If you have kids, or you yourself are an ice cream lover you have probably made your own ice cream pops at least once! I make these for my kids all the time because they’re always SO good!!

Everyone likes something different and that’s just fine. This is just one of the many combos the boys go crazy over. Save yourself some money and make your favorite flavor combo at home.

So let’s take a look…

I always start with a small scoop of the goodies on the bottom of the cup. Kids absolutely love this! My kids always say the can’t wait to tear the cup off and see what the bottom (now the top) looks like!

DSCN2314_FICP

This variation of my Flurry Ice Cream Pops is probably the most basic of all the varieties I make, but it seemed like a good place to start!

There are chopped sandwich cookies in these pops, along with mini M&M’s, rainbow sprinkles, and of course good vanilla ice cream. All very important groups to my kids!

The BEST Brownie Pops!

My husband and boys are forever asking me to make more brownies and more cookies! According to them, they haven’t had brownies in forever. Let me explain their use of the word forever. In this particular case it means approximately a couple of weeks. :)

With the weather just starting to change, and Fall coming very quickly, I was thinking Fall when I decided on brownie pops with some fun Halloween sprinkles. Mostly because the colors of the sprinkles are perfect for Fall.

Being that I had just made a different kind of cookie pop, for the Farmers Market a few days ago, I still had pops on the mind. So, let’s have some fun with brownie pops, shall we?

copy of 010

I admit we are not fans of cake pops, but we do like both brownie pops and cookie pops. I do make both depending upon the day or course. Plus they’re just a fun dessert to serve for just about any occasion. :)

 These brownie pops are so good and so easy, once you get going it all comes together in no time at all!

St. Patrick’s Day Cookie Pops

St. Patrick's Day Cookie Pops

St. Patrick's Day Cookie Pops

I’ve got another simple yet delicious treat for you today!

I call them St. Patrick’s Day Cookie Pops. This one is great for kids and adults. You can put them on a stick, or serve them without a stick, and they’re just as good, and just as fun either way!

So here’s the deal, you know the millions of cake pops that are out there? Well, I’m not a fan! I can hear you gasping from here, they’re just not my thing. I’m not a big fan of frosting in general, and I really don’t like that mooshy cake and frosting combination. Anyway, that said, let’s move on.

Hmm, cookie pops. Have you ever thought about how you like your Cookie Pops? I have, many times. I know exactly how Cookie Pops should be in theory, but that’s not how I make my Cookie Pops, ever. Big surprise, huh?

I purposely leave the mixture just a little chunky, notice I said a little chunky. We all (at this house) prefer them a little chunky, so that’s what I do.

Cookie Pops can’t be too chunky or they’re just not going to turn out the way they should. They’re not going to roll right when too chunky.

Let’s take a look at how to put these St. Patrick’s Day Cookie Pops together.

First off, I would like to say these aren’t based off of a specific recipe. I always make them the way I know my family is going to like them. So after I made these St. Patrick’s Day Cookie Pops, I dug through a bunch of recipes just for those of you that like specifics. :)

          006

First, I made a batch of my favorite chocolate chips cookies. You have several choices here, you can make your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe, use refrigerated cookie dough, or even use pre-packaged cookies.

I always make my own cookies for Cookie Pops, but that’s because we prefer the taste of home-made. But you can do whatever you want here. There will be no cookie police coming to get you. :)

011

The chocolate chip cookies gently crumbled into pieces with approximately one cup of frosting added. As you can see in the picture, I didn’t completely crumble the cookies into super fine pieces, that’s simply a personal choice.

013

These are the St. Patrick’s Day sprinkles I used after the chocolate firmed up completely. You can garnish with anything you want to, St. Patrick’s Day sprinkles, or nothing at all. You decide. :)

018

Whenever I do cookie pops, or almost any treat on a stick I also like to do some without a stick. Depending on who you are serving, and where, it’s nice to have a choice. If you’re serving kids they almost always go for Cookie Pops on a stick! If you are serving adults, it really varies.

St. Patrick’s Day Cookie Pops

INGREDIENTS

1 batch of your favorite chocolate chip cookies baked, or 24 Keebler Soft ‘N Chewy Cookies

1 cup canned vanilla frosting (I used a little less)

24 lollipop sticks

2 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate morsels

2 tablespoons shortening

1/2 cup white chocolate chips or white candy melts

St. Patrick’s Day sprinkles, or any other garnish, if desired

 

DIRECTIONS

1. Bake a batch of your favorite chocolate chips cookies, allow to cool completely. In a medium bowl, crumble approximately 24 of your favorites chocolate chip cookies, or crumble 24 Keebler Chips Deluxe Soft ‘N Chewy cookies.

2. Stir in frosting. Shape mixture into twenty-four 1 1/2-inch balls. Don’t worry about the exact number, but you do want them to be the same size. Insert stick into each, pressing balls around sticks; unless you decided to make some without a stick. Place in single layer on wax paper-lined baking sheet. Cover and freeze for 1 hour.

3. After cookie balls have frozen completely, prepare chocolate. In microwave-safe bowl, combine chocolate morsels and shortening. Microwave on high for 1 to 2 minutes or until smooth, stirring every 30 seconds. Let stand for 10 minutes.

4. Dip lollipops into chocolate mixture, allowing excess chocolate to drip off. Set in cake lollipop stand or place on wax paper-lined baking sheet. Let stand about 15 minutes or until firm.

5. When firm, melt white chocolate coating according to package instructions. Pipe onto cookie pops or drizzle with fork. Garnish with sprinkles, or any desired garnish. Let stand for about 15 minutes or until firm.

Keebler has a recipe for Chocolate Chip Lollipops very similar to how I make mine. I really didn’t adapt from their recipe, because I have been doing it this way for a very long time for different occasions. But the recipe at Keebler.com is very good!
