Ice Cream Balls

Who doesn’t love going to get a snack at Dairy Queen on hot summer days? What’s your favorite treat to get there? I like to get Dilly Bars and my favorite is the mint and the butterscotch flavor. Now you can make them at home, using your favorite kind of ice cream.

Take out your favorite muffin tin and line them with cupcake liners. Scoop some ice cream into them and put a popsicle stick in the middle. Kind of like this.

Put them in your freezer for about a day. I just did a day because I was worried that the ice cream wouldn’t get hard enough.

Next, melt some almond bark or your favorite kind of chocolate in a microwave and take the ice cream balls and dip them in there. You have to work really fast with these. When I was doing this the ice cream would make the chocolate get hard again and it was getting hard to work with. I did 6 at a time.

Voila, you have you’re own homemade dilly bars and didn’t have wait in line at Dairy Queen to get them.


6 scoops of your favorite ice cream (I used vanilla)

6 cupcake liners

6 popsicle sticks

Almond bark or chocolate chips.


1.  Line 6 muffin tins with a cupcake liner. Using an ice cream scoop, scoop out the ice cream and put them in the cupcake liners.Freeze for up to a day or until hard enough to dip the ice cream into chocolate.

2. Once the ice cream is hard enough, melt some chocolate in the microwave. I did mine for about 1 minute and 25 seconds. Dip the ice cream balls into the chocolate. Freeze the chocolate balls until their ready to eat. Enjoy!
