Oreo Cookie Ice Cream Balls

Summer is almost here and you know what your family wants its Ice Cream!  Who doesn't love ice cream?  The last time I went to a state fair we had this deep fried ice cream and I personally didn't care for it so I thought why not mix the three favorite things in the world to me.  Yes Oreo Cookies, Chocolate and of course Ice Cream.

Off we went to Smart and Final to get all of our fixings.  The Smart and Final First Street Ice Cream located in the frozen section has a huge selection from the originals of Chocolate, Strawberry, Vanilla to the unique of Mint Chocolate Chip, Butter Pecan, and I will be trying next time Moose Tracks which has peanut butter cups mixed in.  Yup!

For this I selected Neapolitan since it is my sons favorite, but you can select any flavor you have your heart set on.

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

  • Your favorite Smart and Final First Street Ice Cream Flavor
  • Ice Cream Scoop
  • Toppings of your choice
  • Melted Chocolate
  • Tray
  • Wax Paper
  • Patience

Using the Ice Cream Scoop make Ice Cream Balls and place on a Tray lined with Wax Paper.  You got to work quick here cause you don't want the ice cream to melt.

TIP:  If you are having a birthday party this is a time saver to do prior to the party and you don't get messy when trying to serve people.

Let them sit in the freezer as you work on the next steps.  Melt the chocolate and let it cool down.

Crumble up your favorite topping.  Then when the ice cream balls have sat in the freezer for a while take them out and work quickly to cover them with the topping.

Place the tray back in the freezer and let them sit again.  I did four at a time and it worked perfectly.

Once all of your ice cream balls were covered with the topping and frozen with a slotted spoon hold the ice cream ball then with another spoon drizzle the chocolate over the ice cream ball.  Here I did two at a time.

Then let them sit again in the freezer until frozen.

That's it!  My last tips are this.  When doing the chocolate part make sure there are no distractions.  And try not eat everything before you finish.

I love shopping at Smart and Final, if you have seen my Smart and Final Grand Opening Post you know their produce section is amazing!  Smart and Final is a one stop shop for everything from produce to meats.  And in case you didn't know that they carry warehouse size items without a club fee, making shopping easy, less expensive and less daunting to shop.
