Halloween Ice Cream Party!

Do you feel that? I think fall is coming! Well, for most everyone else, it is still pushing 100 degrees at least once a week here in San Diego, but the calendar tells me that fall is almost here and so we are gearing up for Halloween! I love any excuse to throw a party and what better than the ultimate ice cream bar where the kids can make some fun ‘walking sundaes‘ with a fun Halloween twist!

There were quite a few parts to this party but all were worth it, but of course let’s start by going shopping! I ran out to Walmart and grabbed all my favorite toppings components as well as some fun new pieces I have never tried before! I love the great price on Snack Pack Pudding Cups and Go-Paks! Snack Cups all for about a $1 each so I tend to just grab one of every flavor and usually a few extra to have on hand for after school snacks. Plus you can’t have a sundae without some Reddi-wip!

I can’t wait to show you how all of that became this:

So let’s get started!

Once I got home, it was time to get the ice cream going so that it could get put in the freezer. Because I knew that I had stocked up on delicious toppings, I went with a vanilla ice cream and this recipe is beyond simple and only took about 20 minutes in my ice cream maker. Check it out:

  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp vanilla

Once that comes out of the ice cream maker and goes back into the freezer, I thought I would make some fun frozen pudding treats for the top of the sundae. Cherries are fun, but I wanted to make this a fun little theme piece and who doesn’t love a pudding pop? I took each flavor of pudding and started filling some cute little skull silicone molds I picked up while I was at Walmart, leveling off the top and the popping them all in the freezer to get good and solid.

Next, I started decorating my snack cups. The package that the Go-Paks! snack cups come in is perfect for holding these fun walking sundaes! The kids can build their sundae right in the cup and take it with them around the house or yard! I removed the yellow lids but left on the silver cover because I wanted to make sure not to get paint on the top or inside of the container. Then I gave it one good coat of chalk paint (you may need two or acrylic) and let that dry and then added some white vinyl skull and cross bones that I cut with my Cricut Explore to the front and they were done! YUM!

The only piece to put together after this were the fun cauldrons that held all the great Go-Paks! snacks! These were a SVG file that I purchased and cut with my Cricut Explore and I LOVE how they came out and how great they look with the fun cookies!

I lined it all up on my breakfast bar and everything was ready to build the ultimate walking sundae!

    It’s awesome! I love Halloween party decorations and a pretty buffet table. You did a great job and the kids would go nuts for those toppings!
