Ingredients

  • 4 cups vanilla ice cream softened
  • 3 cups dark chocolate chips
  • 1 ½ Tablespoons coconut oil

Instructions

  • Spread softened vanilla ice cream to about 1/2 inch thick onto a lined baking sheet.
  • Set in the freezer until hardened, about 30 minutes.
  • Once ice cream has hardened, remove from freezer.
  • Cut out mickey mouse shapes with a cookie cutter.
  • Place mickey ice creams on a baking sheet line with fresh parchment paper.
  • Freeze until beginning to firm up, about 5 minutes.
  • Push popsicle sticks into the middle of each mickey ice cream.
  • Freeze until hardened, about 30 minutes.
  • Combine chocolate and coconut oil in a medium sized bowl.
  • Microwave 5 times at 30 second intervals, stirring after each. Total time should be 2 minute and 30 seconds (5 times). Set aside to cool.
  • Remove ice cream from freezer.
  • Dip into cooled chocolate mixture.
  • Place back on baking sheet line with fresh parchment paper and freeze.

Notes

Substitutions:
  • If you don't have Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream, your favorite store-bought brand will do just fine.
  • I personally adore dark chocolate because it cuts some of the sweet! But, feel free to use milk chocolate or whatever else you may like.
  • If you don't have coconut oil, you can use vegetable oil. You may need to slightly cut back on the amount of oil.
Expert Tips:
  • Be warned! Depending on temperatures, your ice cream may melt faster and you may need to freeze it more often or longer than recommended.
  • If your ice cream melts while you're cutting out the shapes, don't worry! Just get them into the freezer as soon as you can. You can always cut off the melted excess.
  • Try and get the popsicle sticks in the middle of the ice creams so they have more stability.
  • You may need to place your fingers between the ears to be able to fully push the popsicle sticks into the ice cream.
  • The chocolate will immediately start hardening once you place it onto the cold ice cream. You can always do a dunking method to try and get a more even coating of chocolate.
  • If your chocolate solidifies before you're able to dip the ice cream, don't worry! You can place it back into the microwave for 30 second intervals until it's melted.
