These easy, do-ahead treats are real crowd-pleasers. Make them your own with your favorite ice cream and toppings!
Nothing goes with cake like a scoop of creamy, dreamy ice cream. But when it comes down to serving it, scoop after scoop, it can be a pain and take valuable time away from your party or get-together. How about doing it ahead of time? With a little prep, these make-ahead ice cream scoop pops will be a hit at your next party…and a huge timesaver for you!
First, pick your favorite kind of ice cream and scoop out as many scoops as needed onto a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet.
Insert a craft-type spoon into each scoop. (I found a large bag of these at my local craft store.)
Freeze until hardened. (I left them in the freezer for a couple hours, just to make sure they were good and chilled.) Now comes the fun part! Roll the scoops in assorted toppings. You could use sprinkles, mini chocolate chips, toasted coconut, crushed candy or even crushed cereal. (Hello, Trix®!)
You can then put them back in the freezer until you are ready to serve. (Or even eat them immediately if you like.) Your guests can pick up a scoop to go with their cake. Give it a try!
