Candy Bar Ice Cream

Am I the only one with chocolate Easter candy still stashed away in the freezer?

In an effort to use what we have, these chocolate bunnies and peanut butter eggs were a fabulous substitute for my regular Butterfinger candy bars.

An easy, frugal way to change plain ol’ vanilla into…

… homemade candy bar ice cream!

Works for me!

  1. that ice cream looks so good, very creative with the candy.

  2. That looks like such a fun treat! 🙂 Too bad we don’t have any leftovers… we never had any Easter candy to start with.


  3. This looks good!! Unfortunately, or fortunately, we don’t really do a lot of candy at Easter…we used to, but I would end up throwing 99% of it away. But this is such a creative way!! I’ve never made homemade icecream, but would love to see how it’s done and try it some time!!

    Looks delicious! But the peanut butter eggs never would have made it past Easter in my house. They’re my favorite!

  5. How clever are you! Unfortunately I do not rest until all candy has been consumed so I don’t tend to have it on hand to add to ice-cream. I could certainly buy some though, it would be cheaper then a Blizzard!

  6. That makes me so hungry. If you hear someone banging around your house tonight, it’s just me looking for the leftovers. Though, I have to say, I really can’t imagine anything being a reasonable substitute for Butterfingers. 😉

    Have you ever noticed that I always seem to stop by your WFMW post when it’s about food? That’s not an impressive trend for me. lol

  7. That sounds delish, I bet the peanutbutter ones would be so good!

  8. What a fun idea! While all our “good stuff” is long gone, we have a lot of those generic chocolate eggs that could make a great “blizzard” …. hmmmm … thanks!

  9. Oh, Yum!! That looks too good to be true. Unfortunately, candy never lasts very long around MY house… {sigh}

  10. Looks YUMMY.

  11. Oh that looks yummy! I’ve never made ice cream.
    Thanks for sharing!

  12. This is such an awesome idea. I wish I had known this a few weeks ago, before my kids ate all that candy. I’ll have to remember this for Halloween and Valentine’s Day candy also! Thanks!

  13. We use up solid chocolate candy by making Hershey Bar Pie. Simply melt chocolate candy and fold in about 6-8 cups of Cool Whip or homemade whipped cream. Pour mixture into a graham cracker crust and place in the fridge or freezer for a couple of hours. Enjoy!
