My 11-year-old son likes treats. There is a container of red licorice on the table I have to resist whenever I enter the kitchen to grab an apple. When his friends come over they ask me to make them ice cream cones or muffins or for some change for the ice cream man. In the meantime I grab a couple squares of dark chocolate. They are just a little on the bitter side, good, but certainly not fun.
However, when I have the ingredients, I make these little ice cream treats. They are very simple, and quick and cute. It makes me feel like I have a little fun treat myself. and they take about a minute to put together.
