Nothing says summer better than ICE CREAM! We are ice cream lovers at this house — for sure! Pretty sure we keep Sonic in business with 1/2 price shakes after 8 pm! So how appropriate for us to read a book involving ice cream and coordinate that with an ice cream project. We read the book “Sunday Love” by Alison Paul. This is “mostly” a wordless picture book. It tells the story of a burglar who breaks out of jail on Valentine’s Day, but is followed by Cupid. Can you guess what the burglar falls in love with? We think the title should have been Sundae Love.
Our project had to do with ice cream, but wasn’t actually ice cream….
This idea comes from Rose Bakes.
Nutter Butter Cookies
White Almond Bark
Lay out sheets of waxed paper to place the cookies on after they are dipped. Melt the almond bark (or candy melts) as directed on the package. Dip one-half of each cookie in the almond bark. Place it on the waxed paper.
Quickly, before the almond bark hardens, sprinkle with candy sprinkles and place a mini M&M at the top (like a cherry).
That’s all there is to it! Let them sit to let the almond bark harden.
Enjoy that different kind of ice cream!
We decided to deliver cookies to our next door neighbors as a special treat for our special neighbors. Will took this picture of our neighbor, Shirley! We also packed up a special bag of cookies for the Grandmas and Grandpas! It is fun to share with others (I hope that’s what my boys are learning!).
HAPPY SUMMER DAYS!!!
