recipe: cupcake ice cream without an ice cream maker

homemade no churn ice cream

Today on DIY Candy I'm sharing a no-churn ice cream recipe...because it's a million degrees outside but I can't cram an ice cream maker into my kitchen cabinets.  Ha!

Find the full post and recipe right here.

ps.  I've shared other flavors of ice cream that don't require an ice cream maker before...

chocolate dipped bananas + homemade magic shell


Remember eating chocolate covered bananas as a kid??  

We threw a birthday party for our two youngest over the weekend and I made these for the dessert table.  They were a hit and so easy to make too!



I started by prepping the night before...I cut the bananas in half, skewered them with a thin popsicle stick {found here}, and then put them in the freezer overnight on a cookie sheet.  

To make the chocolate shell, you'll need:

about 8 oz dark chocolate and 8 oz milk chocolate {I used an 8 oz bar of each}
about 2 tbsp coconut oil

Melt the chocolate {I did it in the microwave in about 45 sec}, stirring until smooth, and then stir in the coconut oil.  

Working quickly, dip the bananas {or anything else!} and coat with toppings...I used sprinkles and coconut flakes.  Place them on a parchment lined cookie sheet to harden.  



They're as pretty as they are delicious!
