Fudgy Freeze Bars Summer Fun for Everyone!
School’s out. The kids are home, ready for summer fun.
This year, why not add baking and decorating to the activity schedule? Not only is baking a great way for families to spend time together, baking at home is fun, economical and educational.
These Fudgy Freeze bars are easy to bake and decorate, and they make a yummy treat. Don’t be fooled by their appearance; they look like an ice cream bar, but they’re not! Underneath the delicious chocolatey coating is a brownie on a stick. Use a brownie mix, or a favorite recipe, and let kids help measure the ingredients and stir up the batter.
After they bake, use a brownie cutter to score the bars to the correct size (you’ll get a dozen bars), then cut them and insert the ice cream stick. Place them on a cooling rack. Ice the bottoms with light cocoa Candy Melts; when the icing has set, turn the bars over and cover the top and sides. Now’s the time to really get creative by decorating the bars with colorful jimmies or other favorite sprinkles.
