My ice cream lovin’ daughter’s birthday is today! Happy Birthday, Nicole!
Last week I had to head to Walmart late at night to gather some craft supplies for my classroom, and Nicole decide to come along with me. So of course we had to check out the ice cream aisle. Not that she needs a reason to see the latest flavors and ice cream creations, but her birthday was just a week away. So up and down the ice cream aisle we ventured. Oh, we had fun! We found a whole boatload of new Blue Bunny® ice cream flavors and these great little snack sized ice cream sandwiches and treats called Blue Bunny® Bunny Snacks. Bunny Snacks, are the perfect bite-size treats that come in four yummy flavors: Salted Caramel Pretzel, Chocolate Vanilla Twist, Chocolate Chip Cookie and Cookies ‘N Cream. It was a hard decision!
Well, we loaded up! It was the beginning of birthday week after all. We bought the Salted Caramel Pretzel, Chocolate Vanilla Twist, and Chocolate Chip Cookie Bunny Snacks. And then we found more – more flavors and fun playful combinations to try. So we also bought a tub of Blue Bunny® Monster Cookie Mash and Blue Bunny® Toffee Brownie Twist™. As Sophia exclaimed when she saw the ice cream, “Monster Cookie Mash? How Adoooorable!”
Over the weekend we had friends in and out of the house, so for fun (and in honor of the birthday girl, and because I had just bought so much ice cream) I set up a super easy ice cream station filled with lots of yummy choices and some dip your own ice cream sandwich treats. Fun!
Dip Your Own Ice Cream Sandwich Treats
This super easy dip your own ice cream sandwich treats and ice cream station started by decorating some colorful wavy popsicle sticks with celebratory sayings in bright colored paint pens.
I then simply tied some ribbon around the popsicle sticks, trimmed up the end a bit, and placed them in a marshmallow filled bowl. The marshmallows helped hold them in place – an easy hack!
I placed a popsicle stick into six of the Chocolate Vanilla Twist Bunny Snacks and rolled a few of them into the treats that I had set into bowls. I had a bowl of chopped nuts, a chocolate and mint mixture, and a peanut butter and chocolate mix.
For the record, the Salted Carmel Pretzel is my favorite! I also placed out the tubs of Blue Bunny® Monster Cookie Mash and Blue Bunny® Toffee Brownie Twist™, I placed the ice cream in a glass dish filled with ice cubes to help keep it cold while friends dished up their favorites.
All together the table looked inviting! A perfect way for friends to enjoy some springtime fun in the sun! It was also a perfect way to kick off the beginning of Nicole’s birthday celebration.
For more than 80 years, Blue Bunny® has been bringing delicious ice cream made with fun, fresh ingredients to families—Just like me, they like to add a little playfulness to any occasion. It is perfect for bringing family and friends together. To see even more creative and yummy Blue Bunny® recipes and treats be sure to visit, How to Make Your Summer #SoHoppinGood.
Blue Bunny® products are available at Walmart stores nationwide. This is where we found all of their new flavors. Next time I am going to get the Rockin’ Rocky Road™ or maybe the Mint Cookie Crunch. Or better yet – we really need to try one of their Blue Bunny® Ice Cream Cakes! They looked scrumptious!
No matter how you dish it up, ice cream is a favorite way to kick up springtime and enjoy summer! What is your favorite way to dish up and enjoy ice cream?
