10 Awesome Sweet Treats for Summer!

Summer is here! Last day of school for a huge part of the country and I’m celebrating by taking the kids out for sweet treats! Here’s 10 fun sweet treats you can all enjoy all summer long!


  1. Sour Patch Grapes Sour Patch Grapes are my new go to for my sour candy fix! With only two ingredients, these candied grapes come together in seconds and taste like you threw deliciously tart green grapes into the machines at the Sour Patch Candy factory!
  2. Ultimate Cookie Dough Ice Cream Sandwich The Ultimate Cookie Dough Sandwich with Cookie Dough flavored Ice Cream, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Chunks (Eggless) sandwich between 2 fresh baked Chocolate Chip Cookies
  3. Disneyland Frozen Chocolate Bananas Disney Chocolate Covered Frozen Bananas are a popular treat inside the parks, at amusement parks and beaches across the world. Frozen Bananas dipped in melted homemade chocolate magic shell and covered in peanuts. The perfect slightly healthy treat!
  4. Strawberry Shortcake Ice Cream Bars – Just like you remember as a kid! Strawberry Shortcake Bars are made with rich Vanilla Ice Cream sandwiched around Fresh Strawberry Sorbet and rolled in a deliciously nostalgic strawberry crumb topping with a butter crumb made with milk powder and freeze dried strawberries. I promise you'll feel like you took a trip back into your childhood when you take a bite but you will love that they are made with natural flavors!
  5. Double Chocolate Brownie Batter Ice Cream No cook, egg free Double Chocolate Brownie Batter Ice Cream! Ready to churn in just 2 minutes and taste's like you are licking the bowl of your favorite brownie batter but in ice cream form!
  6. Sprinkles Cake Batter Ice Cream No cook, egg free Spinkle & Cake Batter Ice Cream! Ready to churn in just 2 minutes and taste's like Cold Stone's Cake Batter Ice Cream!
  7. Oreo Chunk Cookies Chewy & Crispy Oreo Chunk Cookies made with Oreo crumbs and Oreo chunks! The best of an Oreo cookie and sugar cookie combined!
  8. 3 Ingredient Strawberry Sorbet The most perfect, simple, 3 ingredient strawberry sorbet. Sweet, refreshing, tart and creamy, this recipe will not disappoint you and will keep you from ever buying it again.
  9. Sprinkles Birthday Cake Cookies Chewy, crispy delicious cookies that taste like a delicious birthday cake covered in sprinkles! A perfect treat for a birthday lunch or a birthday party dessert table, these cookies will put a huge smile on your face.
  10. Drumsticks Ice Cream Cone All the flavors of the original, with ¼ the number of ingredients! Homemade delicious vanilla ice cream, dipped in homemade chocolate magic shell and topped with crushed peanuts.

Hope you all are enjoying the start of summer!! I am off to see my oldest graduate from one year of pre-school to the next (is this graduation thing a yearly thing? Do kids graduate second grade too?)

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
