Frosty Pumpkin Faces


This is a very simple, but oh so cute ice cream treat. There are many clever treats to make with ice cream, and a selection of them for children to choose from always goes over well. Use your imagination with these treats as I have not yet had a chance to photograph them and the instructions are very general as there are many ways to get the desired effect. It really depends on what ingredients you have to work with. Take these instructions and have fun with them. Each recipe makes one ice cream creature. All of these recipes are great for children to make (with some adult assistance.) Make sure to try the other variations, Cookies and Cream Bats, Frankenstein Heads, Witch Heads, and Wacky Werewolves.

Shapes cut or formed from melted chocolate, chocolate chips, softened tootsie rolls, or frosting
1 scoop orange sherbert
Green gumdrop


Orange Ice Cream ScoopAdding the Chocolate FeaturesCut shapes from melted and poured chocolate or else, use very soft chocolate(or softened tootsie rolls) to mold the features for the pumpkin face. You can also use chocolate chips to form the features, but it will not look as cute. If you have a good hand with a frosting tube, try piping the features onto the ice cream with a thick chocolate buttercream. Place the scoop of ice cream on a serving dish. Add the chocolate features. Roll the gumdrop on a hard surface to form a stem like shape. Place the gumdrop on top of the ice cream scoop. Serve immediately, or freeze for up to three hours.
