Cookies and Cream Popsicles

One of the things that I love about summer is making popsicles. I found a simple mold at the grocery store for a little over a dollar and it makes four popsicles. Our standard is orange or grape juice, but I was feeling adventurous the other day and we came up with something new – Cookies and Cream Popsicles. They came together in a flash and the only downside was waiting for them to freeze. The babies love popsicles in all forms but they were extra excited about these.
They were so excited in fact, that they allowed no time for an official picture of the finished product. I suppose you’ll just have to imagine what they looked like.

Cheers!

Cookies and Cream Popsicles

3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup whipping cream
4 T. sugar
4 Oreo cookies

Add the milk, cream, and sugar to a 2-cup measuring cup. Stir until the sugar is dissolved. Break one cookie into four pieces and drop it into the popsicle mold. Repeat with the remaining cookies, dropping one broken cookie into each popsicle mold. Pour the milk mixture over the cookie until the mold is full. Add the popsicle stick and freeze overnight or until the popsicles are frozen through.

Notes:
The cookies dissolved as they sat in the milky mixture and we ended up with a very cookie layer on the top of the popsicle (bottom of the mold). The layer was delish but the cookie didn’t stay big and chunky like a classic “cookies and cream” dessert. The only way I see to remedy this issue is to buy one of these. While you’re picking one up, grab me one, too…

Mmmm. Doesn’t that face make you want to eat them (or just make you want to grap a washcloth)?

And just so you don’t think we neglect our yard:

I took the popsicle pictures yesterday and I mowed for 2 hours this morning. Short dandelions look just like grass don’t they? I don’t understand all the fuss about getting them out of the yard.

May ran up to me after I turned the mower off one time and said “Mom! You’re mowing all of the flowers!” She was so concerned about all the yellow lovelies I was destroying. They’ll be back little one; don’t you worry.

The tree in the middle of the picture is our cherry tree. With any luck and some lack of freezing, we’ll have more cherries than I know how to use. I’m keeping my fingers double-crossed. I love cherries!

That’s all for today, folks. Thanks for stopping by.
