Individual Ice Cream Cakes Recipe

Ingredients
3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
2 T. unsalted butter, melted
pinch salt
2 cups ice cream, any variety
1 cup heavy whipping cream
2 t. sugar
1 t. vanilla extract
Sprinkles

Direction
For crumbs, you can either pulse them in a food processor til they are ground or put them in a bag and mash them with a rolling pin or something else heave. You can also buy just the crumbs, although they are a bit more expensive. Mix together the crumbs, butter and a pinch of salt in a small bowl. Set aside. Line a muffin tin with plastic wrap. Be sure to work the plastic wrap into each individual tin as well as you can.

Scoop in about 1/3 cup ice cream into each muffin tin. It helps if your ice cream is softened a bit so it flows easily into the cracks.

Freeze the muffin tin for at least 30 minutes.
Remove muffin tin and pack about 2 T. graham cracker mixture onto each ice cream cake. Pack it down densely. Freeze again for at least 30 minutes. If you plan to freeze for longer, cover with another layer of plastic wrap. When you’re ready to serve, whip together heavy cream, sugar and vanilla extract in cold metal bowl til it forms stiff peaks. You can also use a store bought version.

Carefully peel out one of the ice cream cakes and invert it on a plate. Completely cover cake with layer of whipped cream. if you add a dollop of whipped cream under the cake, it won’t slide around while you frost it. Cover with sprinkles and serve at once.

Does anyone have some good recipes for Brussels sprouts? I love them but want some new recipes. I like frozen ones and fresh when they are in season. Thanks in advance.

The first two recipes are ones that I have made for many years. The third recipe is newer, as it calls for using Butterfinger Jingles, which have not been around that long, at least in our area. I think the Jingles are only available around Christmas and the months leading up to the holiday. I have used regular Butterfinger when the Jingles are not easily found. All the recipes are great any time of year and great for any holiday cookie tray or cookie exchange.
