One of my favorite things about the holiday season is watching my children discover and delight in the magic that abounds. From special family trips to the movies to discovering a new treat for the first time, there are wonderful memories to make around every corner, especially if you keep your eye out for the magic.
We made one such special memory last week when I surprised the kids with some holiday treats from Baskin-Robbins. My girls had absolutely no idea that such a thing as ice cream cakes even existed, but I will never forget the look on their faces when I brought one home!
This is the Ganache Poinsettia Cake, and it is so very easy to get one by ordering online at least 24 hours in advance. You can customize the writing on the 9 inch round cake (or leave it simple) and you can also customize both the cake and the ice cream flavors. We opted for chocolate cake with an OREO® cookie ice cream and that combo was AMAZING! One cake can make MANY slices because it is so tall that even a thin slice will be filling as a dessert for folks. The slice we cut here was enough for 2 to share.
It is so perfect for a holiday party when you need to bring something along (especially if kids will be there: you will be the hero of the event!) or you could just surprise your family like I did and enjoy nibbling away at it for several days (we keep breaking it out to enjoy while watching holiday movies).
Last week we also enjoyed a play date with a close friend of my girls. Her mother was recovering from some surgery so I thought it would be fun to bring along a fun after dinner dessert for her family. Did you know that Baskin-Robbins makes Polar Pizzas? That’s right: it’s like a pizza, only made with ice cream!
This is the Peppermint & Winter OREO® Cookies Polar Pizza and have mercy it is SO good! Just as with the ice cream cake, this Polar Pizza is fully customizable, with a double fudge brownie or chocolate chip cookie crust and your pick of ice cream (but I’m telling you now that the peppermint ice cream is so fantastic…it’s really a must try!). It’s also got that awesome Winter OREO® Cookies topping, along with drizzles of marshmallow and fudge. What a fun way to surprise a friend this holiday season. It’s also a fun host/ess gift idea if you are spending the holidays with others. Everyone will love it and everyone will get to enjoy it, too!
The online ordering system at Baskin-Robbins for special holiday treats is very intuitive and very simple. It’s designed to remove some of the stress of the holidays and make life a little easier for you. I had everything ordered in both cases in just a few clicks and both times I went to pick up my orders, everything was ready and correct. I was in and out of the store in a flash!
And while you are in the store picking up your holiday orders, be sure to ask for a scoop of Peppermint Bark in the Dark, the December ice cream flavor of the month. It will help hold those cravings at bay so you aren’t tempted to dig into your ice cream cake and Polar Pizza on the spot. 🙂
And because I love you and want to help you save your sanity AND a some money, here’s a coupon for $2.00 off a Polar Pizza. You can use this when placing an order online or you can use it in the store if you want to go there to place your order.
I Hope the next week is filled with love of love, laughter and light as you spend time with the ones you love. And I hope it’s filled with some fantastic ice cream treats, too! 🙂
