Is it just me, or can holiday parties be incredibly stressful? Sometimes I feel super stressed out when it comes to planning food for get-togethers when it's at my house.
- 1 pkg 24-count ready-to-bake sugar cookies
- 1 container peppermint ice cream
- Christmas sprinkles
Bake 12 of the cookies. Add sprinkles to the tops of each cookie as soon as the cookies come out of the oven. OR you can roll the little dough balls in sprinkles before baking them. Repeat with the last 12 cookies.
Once the cookies are completely cooled, it's time to add the creamy ice cream! Place a half a scoop of ice cream on the bottom of a cookie and spread around using the curved bottom of the spoon. (This will work much easier if you pull the ice cream out to soften for about 5-10 minutes, depending on the hardness of the ice cream.)
Top the ice cream with another cookie. Repeat with rest of the cookies and place them in the freezer to serve for later. (I put each individual sandwich on a tray in the freezer as I go so they don't while waiting for the other sandwiches to be done.
And you're done! An easy treat that you can put together in advance and just pull out of the freezer when you're ready to serve.
We LOVE holiday treats at our house! They're pretty much my favorite. A few days ago we had a "Welcome Christmas" party and I was assigned to bring a treat. There were going to be a lot of kids there so I thought of just the thing to make: Rudolph Donuts! I've loved these since I was in high school and couldn't wait to make them for the party. And with no surprise, the kids loved them! I think the adults thought they were pretty great too. :) These little donuts are so easy to make!
My little guy and I went over to Dollar General to get the ingredients for this treat. He was pretty excited to go out shopping, can you tell?
He loved the little carts!
Here's what we got for Rudolph Donuts...
I couldn't believe how great the prices are at Dollar General Holiday and how many options in groceries they have!
I ended up with a LOT more than my ingredients for the Rudolph Donuts!
