Sweet Treat for Kids: Snowmen Ice Cream Sundaes

Feb 23, 2015

These snowman ice cream sundaes are the perfect treat to beat the cold weather blues.  The kids will love helping you make these and they’ll love eating them even more!  These snowmen would be a great party treat and you can use whatever candies you have on hand to make them even easier to make!

What You’ll Need

  • vanilla ice cream (or frozen yogurt)
  • candies for decoration (I used black licorice, sour belts, mini chocolate chips, orange gummy fish, chocolate shortbread cookies and a mini rolo)

How To Make It

1. Grab your vanilla ice cream and place 3 scoops, one on top of the other, in a shallow dish.

2. Take your candies and cookies and decorate your snowman. You can decorate him with whatever candies you have on hand and anyway you like. If at any time during decorating your ice cream gets too soft or drippy, pop your dish in the freezer for a few minutes to get it to harden back up.

3. Serve immediately and enjoy!

The kids are going to absolutely love these snowmen ice cream sundaes.  They are fun to make and even more fun to eat!  Enjoy!
