Kim of Cravings of a Lunatic and Jen of Juanita’s Cocina have teamed up with more than 20 of their blog friends to bring you a week full of ice cream treats, including a special ice cream giveaway, and our party week ends TODAY! Prepare to have your taste buds tempted with some of the best ice cream treats around! Make sure you enter the giveaway for a Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker and two fabulous ice cream cookbooks so that you can join in on the ice cream fun!

Today we are celebrating Jen of Juanita’s Cocina‘s Birthday with an Ice Cream Party! To show her some love, we invite you all to head over to her website today to wish her the happiest of birthdays. You can also stop by her Facebook wall to wish her a Happy Birthday there as well!

No birthday is complete without some sprinkles so for the party today I brought funfetti ice cream on top of individual funfetti krispie treats, which are what I decided to call funfetti ice cream krispie cupcakes because, well, they look like cupcakes! You can either pick them up and shove them into your face, or be more civilized and use a spoon or fork. Actually I think this treat is a great time to use a spork.

FUNFETTI ICE CREAM KRISPIE CUPCAKES

Makes 12 “cupcakes”

Ingredients:

ICE CREAM

1-1/2 cups low fat milk

4oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix

1/2 cup dry white or yellow cake mix

2-1/2 cups half and half

1/4 cup sprinkles

KRISPIE “CUPCAKES”

3 Tbsp unsalted butter

10 oz. bag (4 cups) of mini marshmallows

3/4 cup dry white or yellow cake mix

6 cups puffed rice cereal

1/4 sprinkles

Directions:

  1. For the ice cream: The day before, place ice cream maker bowl in freezer to make sure it is frozen and ready to use the next day.
  2. In a large bowl combine the low fat milk with the pudding mix and dry cake mix. Whisk until combined, then add the half and half and whisk until incorporated.
  3. Pour the mixture into your ice cream maker bowl and churn according to your machine’s instructions. Once it reaches soft serve consistency fold in the sprinkles, and pour into a freezable container. Place in freezer for 2-3 hours or until firm.
  4. For the krispie “cupcakes”: Lightly coat a muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray, set aside.
  5. Melt butter in a large saucepan over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted
  6. Stir in cake mix until dissolved, then stir in the cereal until evenly coated. Add the sprinkles and mix until evenly distributed.
  7. Press mixture evenly into cavities of prepared muffin pan. Allow to cool completely.
  8. For assembly: Remove “cupcakes” from pan and place one scoop of ice cream on top of each. If desired, top with whipped cream, cherry and additional sprinkles. Enjoy!

*These are best served immediately after preparing. You can assemble and freeze but the krispie treat will be harder.
