Expert Tips

You can top the ice cream bars with hot fudge or strawberry ice cream topping. Top with whipped topping and sprinkles to make it just like a sundae!

Use any kind of ice cream you like--try mint chocolate chip, cookies ‘n cream or vanilla. Use full-fat ice cream for best results.

You can soften the ice cream quickly by spooning it into a large bowl. Allow it to stand at room temperature until soft but not melted.
