Today I am giving a couple fun 'recipes' for the summer months. Oh who am I kidding - I'd eat these goodies absolutely anytime of the year. Bet you would too!!!
ICE CREAM TACOS
8 frozen round waffles - thawed
1 quart ice cream (flavored best) - softened
Mini marshmallows, hot fudge, chocolate syrup, mini chips - whatever you like
8 cherries (optional)
Warm the waffles - do NOT toast. Gently fold each waffle in half and set it in a 13 x 9 baking pan - open side up. Keep rows tight, so they don't fall over.
Add ice cream and any other ingredients you wish. Cover and freeze until firm. Drizzle with chocolate before serving.
ICE CREAM CONE CAKES
Mix up your favorite cake batter.
Set up cones in a flat bottom baking pan. Fill cones to within 1/2" from top. Bake at 375* for 35 minutes (or as directed by your cake recipe). Cool completely and ice as you wish.
What a cute party idea - great for little ones or grown ups! Makes eating your cake fun and easy!!
STRAWBERRY FREEZER JAM
2 C strawberries - hulled and crushed
4 C sugar
1 3/4 oz. pkg. powdered pectin
3/4 C water
5 - 1/2 pint freezer safe containers
Combine sugar and strawberries in a large mixing bowl and set aside
Whisk together pectin and water in a small saucepan - bring to a boil. Boil and stir constantly for one minute, remove from heat. Pour pectin water over strawberry mixture. Stir until sugar is dissolved - about 3 minutes.
Pour into container and secure lids. Set in frig until it sets up (about 24 hours). Freeze for up to one year.
What a great gift!!!
Have some summer fun and yum. I just love cute and simple recipes that makes people smile.
These would be fun for every age group!
