Frozen Tumbleweeds

Surprise Me!

I am coming out of the closet. Yes, I watch the Bachelor!  I know, it is not an example of the finest television programming. The worst part (actually the best part) is that it is so important that I get together with a group of girls —yes every Monday night to watch the Bachelor. We must have been pretty desperate for reality TV (really each others company) that we got together to watch Mama’s Boy last night. All I can say is OH MY, I think we are in for some drama.  However, they are going to put it back to back with the Bachelor–YIKES.  What is a girl to do?  It might take some smooth channel flipping but we will get our fill of drama.

When we gather for this guilty pleasure we have a few cocktails and appetizers! So I thought Frozen Tumbleweeds would be the perfect Christmas gift for these girls.

They are really simple to make and so delicious! The recipe is from my sister-in-law.

Frozen Tumbleweeds

1 5qt container of vanilla ice cream (softened)
2 1/2 cups coffee liqueur (Kahlua, I am on a budget so I used Kamora )
2 1/2 cups creme de cacao (Hiram Walker)
3 – half gallon buckets (I found these at Wal-Mart)

Mix all ingredient in a huge bowl. I used a hand held electric mixer. Fill the buckets and now you are ready to label.

I put a label on the top telling what is in the bucket and that it needs to be kept in the freezer and must be stirred before serving.

If you would like the labels I used you may download them.  I printed them on 1-up label paper I purchased in individual sheets from the copy store (Kinko’s) and cut out on the gray line.

Then on the front I put a greeting from our family. I have made these labels so you can download them and then change the area that says who the gift is from. Click your cursor over that area and you should be able to customize the labels (I am crossing my fingers that this works)
