Introduction: Run Out of Ice Cream? Make a Frozen Delight!!!

Picture of 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 $'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.

zachninme (author)2006-09-11

They are trying to make penutbutter-and-fluff sandwitches illegal in my state... Damn health nuts... Nice idea. :-)

gizmology (author)zachninme2011-03-06

How can they make a KIND OF SANDWICH ILLEGAL? I think you must mean something else...

FrenchCrawler (author)zachninme2006-09-11

That would suck...No more Fluffernutter sandwichs :( Thanks

I've never really been able to figure put what the people in the US call "Jello," and what hte devil is "fluff" when it goin'??????????????/

Jello is a gelatin dessert or a type of pudding. It's actually a brand name. And fluff is pretty much marshmellow but kind of melted.

OK.,yeah gotcha,over here in the UK we call it "Jelly," which is your name for what we call "Jam," and marshmallow...................well its' just marshmallow,ho,hum..... "Two great Nations divided by a common language" quote George Bernard Shaw.

I've heard from someone that the more northern states use Jam but the more southern ones use jell. I'm in the south and I call it Jelly but I really don't know.

Count (author)heavy.metal.nguyen2008-02-23

Jam still has parts of fruit in it, where jelly, (think mint jelly) has been filtered.

heavy.metal.nguyen (author)Count2008-02-23

Yeah, it really doesn't matter to me though. I don't eat either.

im from the north and we call it jello. wait, we can fix this bridge bettween these two nations. we both call it pudding, right?

gizmology (author)bigt46162011-03-06

But in the UK, "pudding" can mean any dessert, right? I've heard the after-dinner course just called "pudding", even if it's cake or cookies (biscuits, ha) or trifle, or whatever. Kids say, "Is there any pudding?" the way we would say "Is there any dessert?" in the US. Or is that some ancient thing from the seventies?

Yes, yes we do.

yes!! wow, im good, i should be a diplomat HAHA


hey peoples you know if you wanted you could make a ridiculously long diagonal thingy of comments because it looks like its already started so just keep replying to the last comment someone put like this (just scroll down to the comments to see it):

We're not trying to...

well SORRY!!!!! i didnt know that

Well, just calm down.

Calm down,moi..............................que??

No not you, golden snake.

bumsugger (author)golden snake2008-08-13

???????????? Think i've missed somethin' here...............???

gizmology (author)Count2011-03-06

Yep, jam is mashed cooked fruit, and jelly has the fruit strained out of it so it's completely clear.

bikerbob2005 (author)bumsugger2008-08-15

Fluff is not just marshmellow<br/>its a major food source!<a rel="nofollow" href="">yummy</a><br/>can make s'mores with out setting fire to the kitchen.<br/>jelly ( another major food source ) has pectin in it , so it behaves like the gooiey stuff that sticks to SPAM yet tastes much better (dont eat the gooiey stuff on the SPAM )<br/>

FreshPineSent (author)bumsugger2008-02-21

Actually, we call it "jam" sometimes too. I don't really know the difference...

Derin (author)2008-12-17

I thought this was Turkish Delight.This is also good,though.

crazycelt (author)2007-11-15

This makes me so incredibly sad, the recipe sounds great and I would really like to try it, except they don't sell Fluff in this part of the country =(
I sooooo miss Fluffernutters!

FrenchCrawler (author)crazycelt2007-11-15

Improvise... try melting some marshmallows in the microwave (in a microwave safe dish, of course). It may not come out exactly like this, but it could be better since the mellows are of a more solid form then fluff.

X_D_3_M_1 (author)2007-10-27

never heard of fluff

funwithfire325 (author)2007-07-27

Slavak (author)2006-09-10

Whats "fluff"?

FrenchCrawler (author)Slavak2006-09-11

It's marshmallows, but in a different formula. We used it on sandwiches, but can be used for other things too.

They also have a "Yummy Book" in their site (under recipes). Yay, they don't have my recipe....yet. I'm going to have to try some of the other ones they have listed.

Danny (author)FrenchCrawler2007-01-27

is fluff available in the uk?

TossManual (author)Slavak2006-09-11

Another healthy American treat. One of the main ingredients in a fluffernutter sandwich.

jkl543 (author)2006-11-29

crazy amricans and your fluff and pankake pogos great food though

Crash2108 (author)2006-09-12

Can't you just use snack packs?

FrenchCrawler (author)Crash21082006-09-13

You could, but I didn't have any so I had to make up the batch of pudding. Plus it's also cheaper this way, more for your money and what not.

Tetranitrate (author)2006-09-11

mmmm ... fluff.
