Summer and ice cream Oh yeah! Two of my very favorite things! These super cute MINI MINT CHOCOLATE CHIP ICE ICE CREAM PLANTERS are perfect when you have guests dropping in and you don’t feel like turning your oven on to make some fabulous dessert.
Did you all have a great long weekend? We sure had. Lots of fun, family time and some pretty cool fireworks at the backyard:-)
I am so excited to share these cute little ice cream planters with you all today. Summer is my favorite season and of course there is no summer without ice cream! Oh, and did I ever mention that we are ice cream distributors? Pretty cool, ha 🙂 Summer is all about being outdoors for me and I have to be quite honest that I don’t turn my oven on too often in summertime. I rather find other ways to create fun party dessert, like these cute little planters.
I did not make my homemade ice cream, but you totally can! Being an ice cream distributor, there is always ice cream in our freezer.
To create these cute little planters you will only need a few things:
– SMALL TERRA COTTA POTS ( lead free) OR CERAMIC POTS
– ICE CREAM (MINT CHOCOLATE CHIP – any brand)
– mint Oreo mint cookies ( crushed)
– fresh mint leaves
I crushed some mini Oreo mint cookies and filled the bottom of the MINI pots with it. If you wish you can cover the inside of the pots with parchment paper.( optional) I, then scooped ice cream on the top and sprinkled some more cookie pieces on the top of the ice cream. Embellished it with fresh mint leaf.
Don’t you think it’s adorable? I absolutely love how cute they are and believe me, your guest will love them, too!
Be sure to only prepare these pots when you are ready to serve them. Ice Cream melts pretty quick:-)
Hope I inspired you to make these cuties for your next party!
