Ice Cream Balls


Did you know that people in New England eat more ice cream per capita than in the rest of the country? This proves that ice cream is not only a warm weather treat. Try these easy almond-coated ice cream balls with your kids; they’ll forget the snow…

1 cup chopped toasted almonds or pecans or if your kids would strongly prefer, colored sprinkles
1 quart vanilla ice cream

Place almonds or sprinkles in a shallow dish. Scoop out ice cream and shape into balls. Roll in topping until well coated. Place on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet and freeze.

Hot Fudge Sauce

1-1/2 cups Rich’s whip, defrosted
2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
¼ cup margarine, cut into pieces
2 cups powdered sugar

Combine the whip, chocolate chips and margarine in a saucepan. Cook, stirring, over low heat until smooth. Add powdered sugar and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Serve hot or cold over ice cream balls. Yum!
