Stuffed Monster Heads
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 Frosty Pumpkin Faces.
1 scoop favorite ice cream
shredded chocolate or chocolate jimmies
assorted candy for features
Place a scoop of you favorite ice cream on a serving dish. Color does not really matter as you will be totally covering up the ice cream. Heavily sprinkle shredded chocolate or chocolate jimmies all over the ice cream. I prefer to use shredded chocolate, and really like using several varieties to get several colors. You can mix the colors together to make a variegated colored fur, or else you can use one color for the body and another color to make the face stand out. Use cinnamon imperials or chocolate chips for the eyes and nose. Use string licorice or frosting for the mouth. Add ears with chopped chocolate, string licorice, frosting, or chocolate chips. Serve immediately, or freeze for up to three hours.
