My SIL had a great idea the other day, and as soon as he mentioned it, I had to run with it! He told me that since it is too hot for Hot Cocoa Bombs now, I should do the opposite and have Ice Cream Bombs! I thought, "What a great idea! Little nuggets of ice cream, just the perfect size for children or dieters or to eat as many as you want of the various flavors!
In the next few minutes, I was off to the store to get the ingredients that I knew I would need:
You will also need your molds that you use for Hot Cocoa Bombs. You can find them here.

Eating Ice Cream Bombs:
When you go to eat these tasty little nuggets, I've found that the best trick is to use the base around the stick as it is intended, a base to keep the ice cream in place. When you bite through the chocolate at the top and begin to eat it and the inner ice cream, it can all sit on the base without falling all over the place. Then, you have the nice chocolaty base to finish it all off. So, be sure to stick that chocolate base to the stick very well!
My favorite chocolate was the milk chocolate, but my SIL says he prefers the semi-sweet. What do you think?
I have a refrigerator on my back patio where I keep drinks and snacks. My grandchildren like to get out popsicles and eat them during the summer. Last summer I found a sticky puddle in the refrigerator to clean up because my little grandson had put the rest of his popsicle in the fridge thinking it would keep it cold for later! Ha Ha! Hopefully this summer these cute little Ice Cream Bombs will get all of the way eaten with no leftover mess! (Chocolate and not mess? Ha!) I hope that you will give them a try, too!
