I can't wait to share with you this fun idea!
Ice Cream Cakes in a CUP!
Easy, easy and so much fun to make!
Have the kids help you... if you dare...
You will need...
Cupcake Wrappers (or you could do a sheet cake)
French Vanilla Cake Mix
Bag of Oreo Type Cookies
Half Gallon of Vanilla Ice Cream
Two Tubs of Cool Whip
Small Plastic Cups
Sounds good so far right?
Make you cake mix as directed...
But sprinkle in about a third of the oreos...
crumbled into the batter.
Bake your cupcakes or sheet cake as directed.
I had 24 cupcakes...
So I put ice cream and syrup in each of the cups.
I generous scoop, but leave room for your layers.
Next I added another third of the cookies crumbled into my vanilla icing.
I took the wrappers off the cupcakes and iced them...
Messy is GOOD.
The dropped them into the cups and crumbled them a bit.
Then added a few broken pieces of the left over oreos.
You can never have too many oreos!
Then added the cool whip and syrup.
Freeze them for at least two hours before serving.
Okay, besides being oh so dang good.... these are so cute to serve.
If you are a PTO or classroom mom... you will be the hit of the party.
Plus, everything is all ready, no scooping... no mess.
The cake stays really fresh too.
My 24 cups fit on two cookie sheets and
I covered them with aluminum foil till they were ready to serve.
They will last about a week in the freezer too.
You could do any flavors... but we love OROES... don't you?
Thanks So Much For Visiting!
