It’s ice cream season! I love ice cream. Baskin Robbins mint chocolate chip is my favorite ice cream of all-time, hands down.
We’re always looking for random ways to make the ordinary super fun with the kids, so when I saw this adorable idea for Ice Cream Truffles on Pinterest, I thought we could give it a shot. Have you made these before? The recipe is from Real Simple magazine.
It sounds easy enough, but let me tell you: working with ice cream for these is not what I would call super fun.
Ice cream melts, after all. I like truffles to be nice and round. But ice cream, well, melts, and thus while it can be an easy recipe overall, be aware that it can be sticky and messy. So much that even my kids stopped helping me make these after a while.
Here are mint chocolate chip truffles with chopped white chocolate:
These were SUPER tasty! We all loved gobbling these up!
I also made vanilla ice cream truffles with a mixture of chopped chocolate and toffee bits, aka a Heath Bar Ice Cream Truffle:
I also had a wild idea to try to make ice cream truffles on a stick. Like cake pops, but with ice cream truffles!
Unfortunately, because they melt, they don’t work well on the stick. Unless you’re content to pop them onto a stick and gobble them up immediately. So, either enjoy the adorableness of ice cream truffle sticks as soon as you make them and then devour them in a minute, or, don’t bother making them at all.
