Fun Summer Treat- Ice Cream Cookie Sundae with Candy Flowers

Last week was the last week of school for my kids and to celebrate I thought that we needed something sweet, like ice cream.  Nothing screams summer to me more than ice cream and a fun sweet treat!  Instead of just doing plain ice cream, I thought it would be fun to make some ice cream cookie sundaes and top them with a bunch of different candies, including some fun candy flowers that I made.

I headed to Walmart to get all the supplies.

 I found the Skittles® and M&M's® in the candy aisle.  I found the M&M's® Cookie Ice-Cream sandwiches and SNICKERS® ice cream bars in the frozen section.

MARS® candy is by far my favorite candy so it was a no brainer to use it in the ice cream sundaes.  And right you can enter to win a $100 Walmart gift card daily!!  Plus you  should Download the Blippar app from your Apple or Android store to scan your package and receive exclusive content.

The flowers were super easy to make and they were so much fun to make!  I love how they turned out and better yet, I liked how they tasted :).  The first thing I did was took a square pretzel and some white candy melts.  I put the melts into a sandwich bag and then heated it up in the microwave for about 1 1/2 minutes (in 30 second increments).  I cut off the tip of a corner of the bag .   I worked on wax paper so they were easy to get off the plate.

I then covered the pretzel with the candy melts and then added the Skittles® to the pretzel.

Aren't they so much fun??  I love all the bright colors!  They are so easy that it's a great  activity for the kids to do too. My 4 year old made lots :).

For the ice cream cookie sundaes, I took off one of the cookies from the M&M's® ice cream cookie sandwiches (you can use it for another sundae).

Then I added some whip cream and topped it with the flower candies and the SNICKERS® ice cream bars (all cut up).  And that's it!  They were so amazing!!! I loved everything about it :).  You can do an ice cream cookie sundae bar and let people put whatever toppings them wanted on there.
