I'm so excited to share this cool treat with you today, in fact it's so cool, it's frozen!
A DIY Star Ice Cream Bar
And the coolest thing about these bars was how simple they were to make.
The possibilities are endless, as I've got a bunch more cool ideas floating around!
Star Ice Cream Bars
I started with the Wilton silicone mold and Dreyer's Slow Churned Yogurt which I thought was ice cream.
I don't know how I ended up with this, but I loved the taste.
Maybe it was because as I was reading all the ice cream labels, I got the look, you know that look, like "what on earth is taking so long, just pick a carton"!
So thanks to my hubby's impatience with me, I have found a new "Ice Cream"!
I let it soften enough to fill each star mold.
Then I leveled off the top with an off set spatula and froze overnight.
Next I made the chocolate shell to dip the ice cream in.
After mixing it up, I poured it into a smaller, deeper bowl.
After letting the ice cream stars freeze over night, I removed them from the mold and inserted wooded skewers, one at a time.
Then I dipped each one in the chocolate shell.
Planning ahead, I got out my FUN tastic pack of paper straws, from the CAKE POP STAND COMPANY and pulled out the red and white straws, to cover the wooden skewer.
For a little added fun, I sprinkled each chocolate star with red, white and blue jimmies before the chocolate shell set up.
Of course you could serve the Star Ice Cream Bars laying down, either way, they taste great...because I put LOTS of chocolate on each star.
Why not let these be the "Star" of your next party??
