Every night after dinner without fail, my boys ask, “Mom, can I have a dessert?”
If they ate a decent amount of nutritious food, the answer is always “yes.”
They favor ice cream, and I usually have assorted ice cream snacks in the freezer for desserts. They love ice cream sandwiches, frozen ice cream candy bars, ice cream cups, you name it. If it’s frozen and tasty, they love it.
So, when I saw this recipe in a magazine, I knew we’d be trying it. The original recipe called for a layer of ice cream on the bottom, but I thought it made more sense to put a “solid” layer on the bottom, and it worked out well that way. Easier to hold and eat!
