Jello Ice Cream Shamrocks

Our family has always been big about holidays.

Every holiday.

We can’t pass up any excuse to celebrate and have had great Mardi Gras, Chinese New Year and Cinco de Mayo celebrations to name a few.  When my kids were growing up they also used to love St. Patrick’s Day.  The whole day was filled with green food from breakfast to dinner and I wish that I had found this pin for Jello Ice Cream Shamrocks from Creative Food way back then.  My kids would have loved it and now yours can too!

Jello and Ice Cream Shamrocks. Kids will love making these Jello Treats!

The fun thing about this recipe is that after you mix everything together, while it is cooling the ice cream rises to the top to make a fun layer. Oh and if you see any little black specks on the Jello, I promise it isn’t dirt!  I used a vanilla bean ice cream and those are specks of vanilla bean. Phew.  I knew you were worried.

Jello Ice Cream Shamrocks. The ice cream separates from the Jello to make this fun St. Patrick's Day treat!

I’m sure you could make these in any flavor and cut with any shape of cookie cutter.   The possibilities are endless. But for the time being, these will be on our menu for our St. Patrick’s Day dinner!  Top of the mornin’ to ya cause This Pin Rocks!

Jello Stars Recipe

“Watch it wiggle, see it jiggle.” No I’m not talking about my thighs! They do jiggle, but I don’t want anyone to watch that. I hope you remember the Jello commercial that had this jingle in it! I’ve never seen white Jello before this pin. I thought at first it would be some mixture of Cool Whip […]
