Cookies N Cream Popsicles


I haven't been posting much lately because life has been so. flippin. busy.  With the kiddos out of school the days just fly by.  I spent last week camping in the mountains with the youth from my church and learned a few lessons.

First of all, teenage girls are hilarious.   Seriously.  Hil.Ar.i.ous.  Teenage girls usually get a bad rap for being catty and judgmental but in actuality they have great hearts and wicked senses of humor to boot.  Watching teenage girls is a comedy routine in itself.  Sucking down vinegar packets, popping bubblegum all over their faces, putting toothpaste on their noses to attract Snipes... I probably need to adopt a teenage girl just for the daily ab workout.  I have no idea how their minds work.  I really don't.  But they are always entertaining in a "What the crap is going on??"  sort of way.

Second of all, teenage girls have a ridiculous amount of energy.  I like to pretend that I am still young and energetic but this trip reminded me that I am in fact, old.  Teenagers can stay up all night and not act like zombies the next day.  Ok, actually some of them act like zombies. I brought my kids' very realistic, and very hairy, Halloween rat, up to camp with the intention of placing it in strategic places to scare the pants off of some of my girls.   I was so tired I completely forgot about that darn rat!  Wherever these girls get their energy from, I need some of it.

Also, teenage girls eat.  A lot.  It was insanely hot when we were up there and I so wished we could have had some popsicles.  These ones would have done it.  Actually any ones would have done it.  Also a swimming pool full of ice cubes, if we're not being picky.

I had a great time up there with those cute girls but I was not at all sad to come home to my nice soft bed and a hot bubble bath.

On to popsicles?

I love the sound of Cookies N Cream 'popsicles' but let's be honest, there's cream in these so really they're just ice cream bars.

I won't tell if you don't.

I'm hoping to be back posting regularly, now that the crazy bits of my summer are winding down.  I have missed posting but I certainly haven't slowed down in the baking department.  I have lots to share with you.

Have a popsicle and enjoy your weekend!

Cookies N Cream Popsicles
Makes 7-8 pops*
-3/4 cup milk
-1/4 cup sugar
-3/4 cup heavy cream
-1 tsp vanilla
-About 12 Oreo cookies

Heat the 3/4 cup milk until hot.  (I just do mine in the microwave.)  Add 1/4 cup sugar to hot milk and stir until dissolved. Add 3/4 cup heavy cream and vanilla and stir until well combined.

Fill popsicle molds with broken Oreos (about 1 1/2 per pop). Pour cream mixture over top of cookies.  Insert popsicle sticks in molds and freeze overnight or about 6 hours before eating.

*My popsicle molds make large full-size popsicles, but you can adapt this recipe for any size molds.  If you use the small pop molds you may get up to 16 pops. 

Pin It!

So glad to hear you had a fun time at girl's camp. Ours was the same week as yours. I agree, those teen girls are hilarious!

If these taste at all like those Hershey's cookies and cream bars then these are SO right up my alley.
