This Halloween ice Cream Sundae is something you’ll want to scream over. The simple, spooky treat uses ice cream and store bought strawberry topping to make a tasty, bloody treat.
If I had it my way, I would have ice cream for dessert every day of my life.
Even on my birthday, which lands in chilly December, I want an ice cream cake.
So it’s no surprise that on the spookiest day of the year, I’d want the sweet treat as well.
How to make Halloween Ice Cream
The main aspect of this “recipe” is making the eyes.
- First, soften your ice cream a bit so it’s easy to work with.
- Take your spring loaded scoop and scoop out some ice cream. Flatten the edge so that when you release it, it will be a half-sphere.
- Release onto a cold, parchment-lined sheet tray and continue until you have enough. Press a candy eye into each. You can use any candy eyes, like these.
- I made mine by warming white candy melts in the oven on a parchment-lined sheet tray until soft, then pressing a wide chocolate chip (I used these) into the center to make a pupil.
- Quickly use a toothpick dipped in red food coloring to make the veins – you could alternately use decorating gel or red frosting.
- Allow to set up. This is a great thing to do ahead of time if you’re having a Halloween party!
- In the meantime, lay some strawberry topping onto a plate. If you want it more bloody looking, add a few drop of red food coloring to deepen the color.
- Place your frozen eyes on top and boom! You’ve got a tasty Halloween Ice Cream Sundae.
You could also pop them into soda for a fun Halloween ice cream float!
