Do you want to know a secret? Well, it’s not a secret if you follow me on Instagram, but I am really obsessed with Dreyer’s Slow Churned Frozen Yogurt. Like a lot. Ever since my hubby and I discovered it, it has become a staple item in our home. At any given time, you can find the Slow Churned Vanilla Frozen Yogurt and the Slow Churned Chocolate Vanilla Swirl in our freezer. It’s kind of our little treat after the kid’s go to bed. We cuddle up on the couch, watch our favorite shows and eat a bowl of deliciousness. I love the slow churn so much because it is rich and flavorful and has this really wonderful light and fluffy texture to it. It’s dreamy. And do you want to know another secret? I eat mine with a scoop of peanut butter and chocolate sauce! Heavenly.
Well, now that the Holidays are in full swing it’s time to add something new into the mix! I’m always looking for fun treats to make with Miss E and I came up with these easy Ice Cream Cone Santa and Reindeer using Dreyer’s special edition, Slow Churned Peppermint Wonderland Ice Cream. It just screams CHRISTMAS! And guess what, it’s HALF THE FAT and 1/3 FEWER CALORIES than regular ice cream because it’s made with non-fat milk.
To make the characters, I placed two scoops of the Dreyer’s Slow Churned Peppermint Wonderland Ice Cream into standard waffle cones. Then for the reindeer, I broke a pretzel in half for the antlers, used mini chocolate chips for the eyes and then a red chocolate candy for the nose! And Santa was pretty close to the same except he got a strawberry hat.
These took minutes to put together and would make a really easy treat for a Holiday party.
To keep them looking fresh, I poked holes into a cardboard box and was able to stand the cones up and place them in the freezer to preserve their cuteness. This way, you can easily make them ahead of time for your event.
And in case you are wondering, the Peppermint Wonderland IS limited edition and is only available through December. So hurry!
