Introduction: Run Out of Ice Cream? Make a Frozen Delight!!!
This is a very simple and easy (well depends on how lazy you are) to make frozen dessert. If you want the recipe, paypal me $20....it's worth it.
I won't charge this time, but next time I'm going to have to....
The story behind it all.
I was looking in the freezer to see if we had any more ice cream left. Guess what, we didn't. So after much consideration, I figured I'd try out some ideas. My first idea was Fluff with chocolate syrup mixed together and frozen. It was alright, but didn't have the texture of real ice cream. So I tried again and kaboom, I had figured out how to make a frozen dessert that was almost like ice cream (maybe even better). One of my friends was walking by and jokingly said that it was a frozen delight. So now that's what we call it.
1. Fluff (Marshmallows will work)
2. Chocolate Syrup (Optional)
3. 2 Containers
4. 2 spoons
5. Pudding (Instant is easier)
6. Milk (for the pudding)
7. Additional additives (chocolate chips, M&M's, chopped nuts, banana, etc.)
-Measuring cups also helpful, but not neccessary (if you can do it by eye).
Step 1: Make the Pudding and Prepare the Fluff
1. Follow the instructions on the pudding box. I used the instant vanilla, but wanted chocolate (didn't want to wait the hour for the other type) so I added a 1/2 tablespoon of syrup to the pudding (more if you want it rich, less if you don't). Mix until smooth and place in the fridge.
2. Using the spoons, do your best to get approx. 1 and 1/4 cup of the Fluff into the other container (if you use the mellows, do it by heating them up in the microwave, but be sure not to blow them up. This will make them more liquidy). Now mix the Fluff until it is smooth and not so sticky any more.
I had to use both Fluff and mellows, cause I ran out of Fluff. You can also use other types of puddings to achieve different flavors.
Step 2: Finishing It All Up....
1. After the pudding is done, take it out and measure out about a cup and mix it into the Fluff (I did it the other way around, cause I wanted to use up the rest of my pudding). Make it as smooth as possible (should be easy unless you used the mellows, then you'll have some chunks) and add the optional ingredients into the batch.
Some ideas are : Sliced bananas/strawberries/blueberries (especially if you kept the vanilla flavor), peanut butter (can you say, Reeses?), chopped nuts, M&M;'s, chocolate chips, crushed Oreos, etc.
Perhaps even a few drops of mint extract to liven it up.
2. Now freeze it (depending upon your batch size, mine took an hour). After it's frozen, you can easily dig a spoon into as if it was ice cream. Now enjoy your delicious Frozen Delight. Maybe even add some "ice cream" toppings to it.
