You guys probably had no idea that I was so obsessed with fresh corn. And yeah, this ice cream starts with fresh corn.
I never talk about my love of fresh summer corn here because typically we just grill it, spray it with butter, and sprinkle some salt on it. Easy easy and so good. But there’s no need for a recipe when you’re doing that.
My love of corn is coming out this week.
Back when I lived in Alabama, I made frequent trips to the flea market because they had (probably still do?) a stand that did roasted corn and then they had, like, this bar of different seasonings you could sprinkle on it.
Omg, you guys. My favorite thing in the world. Last time we went home I told my husband we had to get some before we left and he was all, “You really want to spend your time at home at the flea market?”
Uhhh yeah, eat corn, look for Pyrex. Does he know me at all?
If you are into sweet corn like me, you are going to be obsessed with this ice cream. So the ice cream itself is just corn flavored. But then at the end, you mix in some caramel sauce. And then you can top it with some real caramel corn if you like a little crunch in your ice cream like me.

Happy Wednesday, y’all! I’ve got the PERFECT treat for this amazingly warm weather we’ve been having recently.
Ice Cream Sundae Bar!
I put this together over the weekend after my kids had been outside playing with their friends for, like, 8 hours. I went to Walmart for all my toppings and the star of the show, DREYER’S Frozen Custard.
I have always loved frozen custard and I’m pretty stoked that it’s now easily accessible thanks to DREYER’S. It is extra thick and creamy which is exactly why I love it. Plus it’s made with fresh milk and has no artificial colors or flavors!
DREYER’S Frozen Custard comes in so many fun flavors, too! I picked up Old Fashioned Vanilla (the sundae at the very bottom of the post) and Strawberry Shortcake (directly below) – I’m a vanilla person and my husband is all about the Strawberry Shortcake. And oh my gosh, the pieces of shortcake and the strawberry swirls in Strawberry Shortcake are absolutely divine!
Other flavors of DREYER’S Frozen Custard include: Chocolate Malt, Mint Cookies N’ Cream, and Peanut Butter Pie (next on my list!).
Putting together an ice cream sundae bar is so easy and it is so much fun for the whole family! You can basically use whatever you want but I think you should have a good combo of sauces, like hot fudge, and then some candy, like peanut butter cups, and then you have to have cherries! What’s a sundae without a cherry on top?!
Walmart is doing in store DREYER’S Frozen Custard demos across the country March 26 – 29 and you can find out if your local Walmart is participating by checking this spreadsheet. Also, be sure to check out the DREYER’S Facebook page and Pinterest page.
Stick a bowl outside before a big snow so you can make Snow Ice Cream! So easy – the perfect project for kids!
Happy Friday! I’ve got a quick and easy recipe today! You can make it with your kids next time you’re snowed in or just make it for yourself and don’t share with anyone.
I won’t judge you.
We got, like, 8 inches of snow on Wednesday. Which was fun because the weatherman said we’d get 2. He has a history of playing with my emotions so I took a chance and put a ginormous mixing bowl in the background to collect snow.
By lunchtime we had a full bowl of snow and I had a sore throat from yelling at Penelope (the husky) to keep her face out the bowl every time she went out. Seriously, a yard full of snow and she wants to eat my snow?
Besides the snow, you just need a can of sweetened condensed milk! You can get fancy and add vanilla but I think it’s delicious just like this. Then you must top it with at least 1/2 a pound of sprinkles. That’s the only way to eat ice cream, right?
We had a ton of fun making it so I put another bowl out that night and it was COVERED with snow by the time I went to bed. By about 9 am, it had all melted. Because… well, welcome to Colorado.
One way I know that I am getting old is that I no longer like candy corn.
Like, it was only a couple years ago that I had one of my friends over to make those homemade butterfingers out of candy corn because our husbands said they didn’t like candy corn and we were all “WUT?! YOU DON’T LIKE CANDY CORN?!”
So obviously, we needed to trick them into eating (and enjoying) candy corn.
But now, bleh.
I even bought all those fun ones that came out this year. Pumpkin Spice, Caramel something-or-another, S’mores.
Nope. Hated all of them.
But I do love regular foods dressing up to look like candy corn. I made these cookies a few years ago and I absolutely had to make these Candy Corn Pudding Pops this year because I’m currently eating Fudgesicles like it’s my job and I figured these were kind of close to that.
Super simple – you use box pudding mixes and then you just layer them in popsicle molds and freeze overnight. These don’t taste like candy corn (if you can find candy corn pudding, go for it) but I used a cheesecake pudding for the white layer (white chocolate would also work) and then french vanilla with food coloring for the other two layers.
They turned out super cute and my kids were obsessed.
