Today Sandy, from Reluctant Entertainer, is here sharing a wonderful and fun idea for a kid pleasing dessert! Sandy’s fabulous blog is all about imperfect entertaining, hospitality and family life! You will want to check it out!
My daughter’s soccer team came over last week for a swim party. I decided to make my Ice Cream Trough dessert for the girls, because it’s easy, feeds a ton, and is always a big hit.
My friend had borrowed my trough (which is just a planter box!) the day before and returned it with leftover cake (perfect, I didn’t have to bake a cake!).
After filling the bottom with ice, then plastic wrap, we cut the cake up into cubes.
Scooped out the ice cream (2 pints).
Added whipped cream and a few bananas. Sprinkled with M&Ms and Wah Lah! A trough ready for hungry kids!
My friend Cindy and I carried it out to the girls (best to eat outside where they can make a mess!) with plastic spoons and paper towels. And the girls dug in! The other option is to scoop out individual servings.
The beauty of this dessert is it doesn’t have to be perfect.
You can use what you have in your kitchen (cake mix, brownies, leftover cake), and even leftover ice creams from your freezer. Look around for a topping (I happened to have M&Ms and a few bananas) and pile it on!
The kids don’t care. They’re just happy to have something yummy to eat.
Good friendships, sunshine, water, imaginations, laughter, and full tummies.
