School’s out and Summer is in. As much as I am happy that I can sit around and watch TV throughout the day, I still find myself to become quite bored. In the GA heat it can become pretty hot. So, what’s better than a nice popsicle?
I don’t know about you but one of my absolute favorite treats is cookies n’ cream anything. Today I am going to show you how to make a cookies n’ cream Popsicle. This popsicle is inspired by a Buzzfeed video I saw on social media.
To make the delicious treat shown above, you will need:
1 cup of heavy whipping cream
7 oz of sweet and condensed milk
1/2 a teaspoon of vanilla
First, you will need to take about 15 oreo’s and separate the inside from the cookie. I used a knife to slide off the filling. Next, you need to crush the cookie part of the Oreo. These are going into the popsicle molds later, so you can make them fine or not. But, consider the fact that with Oreo chunks, it will be harder to put the mixture into the mold, and to put the tops on. I did mine in chunks, but I wish I had crushed them finer. I used the same knife from before to make the chunks.
Next, add 1 cup of heavy cream into the mixing bowl that also has the inside of the oreos. Along with that, add the 7 oz of sweet and condensed milk and the 1/2 a teaspoon of vanilla. Beat this with a mixer and its whisk attachment until your mixture is medium peaks or looks like this:
Medium peaks mean that when you raise your mixer out of the bowl, the peak top will fall over slightly, as shown in the picture. The peak is not stiff, meaning it stands upright, but is not soft, meaning it falls out of shape almost immediately. This peak does slightly fall, but still holds the shape of a peak.
Lastly, you need to fold in the crushed Oreos from earlier into the mixture. Fill you popsicle molds up and set in the freezer for at least 6 hours. I would recommend to use a spoon or knife to help you fill the molds. It is not a runny liquid so you will need to use a utensil to help get it in. This is what mine looked like after filling up the molds:
When they are done, you might need for run the mold under some hot water to help release the yummy popsicles! You are left with a delicious treat that will cool you down from the heat!
