No cook Mini Ice-cream balls

No cook Mini Ice-cream balls prepared with JUST 4 INGREDIENTS. You heard me right… no cooking required and an easy dessert whisked up in just minutes. Cook time mentioned is the setting time required to freeze these goodies. Plain Vanilla ice-cream whisked up with cookie crumbs, rolled in unsweetened chocolate crumbs and topped with cherries is a perfect kid’s friendly recipe. It involves all of their favorite stuff – ice-cream, cookies and chocolate – a heavenly abode what all they can ask for. Be careful this dessert is very addictive, even after repeated warnings there will be lots of licking going on behind your back 😉 . 

If you prefer you can enjoy it as is or shape them into balls. Ice-cream balls have to be rock solid before you start working with them. Be quick in shaping them as the heat from our hands will make them melt away. Another option would be to freeze it in a big container, scoop out tennis ball size scoops, roll them in grated chocolate and freeze until ready to freeze. This way you don’t have to worry about them melting away – next time I am going to give this idea a try!!

Cookie crumbs used in this recipe are low in sugar – you can use any kind – Parle- G, Marie, Nilla wafers, plain butter cookies to name a few. Crushed cookies add that crunchy texture to the ice cream making it a fun twist to the regular ice-cream. Serve them in muffin cups or on a stick – this way everyone can have their individual share and opt for more.. if you have any leftovers left. Kid’s break from school – what a perfect day for them to assist me in the kitchen and they enjoyed playing around with ICE-CREAM.Whisked up an extra batch to reward my little hard workers(wink, wink.. 😉 )
