Cooking with Kids: Ice Cream Dessert

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day yesterday! Little man and I spent the day at my sister's house with family (husband had to work - boo!). We watched my nephew's baseball games in the afternoon and headed back for a barbecue afterwards.

Here are some samplings - my dinner plate and dessert plate. You can never have too much food right? Burger with pepper jack cheese, dill pickles and mustard, potato salad, deviled egg and baked beans. Then my dessert plate (I know!) - ice cream sandwich dessert, jello pretzel salad and Snicker salad (recipe to come!).
















I was so stuffed driving home. Uncomfortably stuffed. It wasn't good, but so worth it as it was going in my mouth!

My nephew and I also had the chance to throw together an easy ice cream dessert. If this kid doesn't turn out to be a professional athlete, he might just be a chef. I've never met a kid who loves to cook so much and eats ANYTHING. He is not picky. He'll eat you out of house and home, and won't be choosy about what he eats!

Next time you have little ones around try out these simple and easy dessert.


Ice Cream Sandwich Dessert
1 box ice cream sandwiches
1 large tub whipped cream
1 bottle caramel topping
2 candy bars, crushed

In a large 9x13 pan, lay ice cream sandwiches on bottom on pan and drizzle with caramel. Spread whipped cream on top of sandwiches, drizzle with more caramel and top with crushed candy bar of your choice. Freeze for at least one hour before eating.


Yum! It was a hit. A great dessert to make for the upcoming hot summer days.

What is your go to dessert in the summer?

  4. Hope you had a good Mother's Day!

    That dessert sounds so simple and of course, look amazing. I'm sure it's fat free too, right? ;)

    I noticed that you had Jello Pretzel salad! My hubby's mom makes that and now it's a recipe that I'm required to make for him. Not many people make it or have had it...and I'm not a fan of jello (at all!), but it is a delicious dessert.

  10. That dessert looks a lot like one my mom used to make all the time! YUM :-P

    My go-to summer dessert is soft serve ice cream, hands down. Depending on the mood, it's either a sundae with caramel, or an orange & vanilla twist with rainbow sprinkles :)
