One of our favorite fall activities is apple picking. It’s become quite the little fall tradition in our house ever since our first trip to the apple farm when my son was in preschool. Now it’s a yearly tradition that we all look forward to. I’m not the biggest fan caramel apples on a stick but I love caramel and apples together. I’m more of a dip my apple slices in caramel kind of gal. Plus, apple slices are just easier for the kids to eat so it’s no surprise these were such a big hit in my house. What I love most about this Caramel Apple Nachos recipe was how easy it was to make. Plus the flavor combinations are endless.

Who wants some ice cream? If I even whisper those words, My oldest comes running. I honestly can’t blame him. There is never a shortage of ice cream in our freezer. It was the one snack I really craved when I was pregnant and honestly there is nothing better than a delicious bowl of ice cream on a warm summer night! Well actually, maybe there is. There’s nothing better than a yummy ice cream cake.
Typically when it comes to ice cream cake, I always buy one. Sometimes it’s just easier and I’m all about easy recipes. Until I had an idea for an easy ice cream cake hack.
Last weekend, we were shopping at Walmart and while we were there, they were holding a Blue Bunny Ice Cream Sandwich demo. Getting to try samples of ice cream sandwiches totally made his day. So I grabbed a box to try my hand at my own ice cream cake. Don’t worry, you don’t have to miss out on all the fun, keep an eye out for the next Blue Bunny Demo taking place on June 20th. Walmart stores will be holding tastings of Blue Bunny Vanilla Ice Cream and Biscoff. Yum! To see if your store is participating, CLICK HERE for a list of stores holding the demo.
There were so many delicious flavors of Blue Bunny Ice Cream to pick from but Mint Chocolate Chip is a favorite of my entire family, so that’s what we went with but you could totally make this with any flavor.
This easy peasy ice cream cake is perfect for a after dinner treat or your next barbecue and since it doesn’t take a lot of effort, you can feel good about making it.
- 1 Gallon Blue Bunny Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream
- 1 box Blue Bunny Ice Cream Sandwiches
- Wax Paper (or foil if you don’t have any wax paper left like me)
- Hot Fudge
- Whipped Cream (I made homemade but a tub of frozen whipped topping would work too)
- Chocolate Sprinkles
Spoon softened Blue Bunny Ice Cream on top of ice cream sandwiches.
Top with another layer of ice cream sandwiches.
When ready to serve, remove from freezer. Frost with whipped topping and drizzle with chocolate sauce and sprinkles.
- 1 Pint Heavy Whipping Cream
- 2 Teaspoons of Vanilla
- 1/4 cup of Confectioners Sugar
This is my go-to whipped cream recipe and it’s really easy to whip up a batch. It paired perfectly with the ice cream and I can’t wait to serve this at my next picnic!

Nothing screams spring and summer to me like a tall refreshing glass of lemonade. It reminds me of the little lemonade stand that my son used to set up at his grandmother’s house on warm, sunny days. That tall refreshing glass of lemonade always tasted so good. When I think of Country Time Lemonade, I immediately think of my grandparents. They always had a canister in their house and there may have been a time or two that I would sneak a spoonful of that powdered mix while they were making a pitcher for us to drink. Ah…..childhood memories and the things we did when we were kids. Now that I’m a mom preparing my own family get togethers, I see all the hard work that goes into holiday preparation. With Easter right around the corner (um…where did March go??) and dinner being hosted at my house, I needed to come up with some delicious dessert options. These Lemon Blueberry Mini Bundt Cakes are everything I wanted and then some. Seriously this may be the best dessert I’ve ever made. They’re that darn good.
