For this recipe, we decided the ice cream would be the primary focus, but of course, we’d have to spruce it up for Easter! Adding a marshmallow Ducky to the top, and having a homemade chocolate nest bowl to top it off. I think it turned out cute, and my kids? Well let’s just say before I had even finished taking photos my husband was in the kitchen making more of the ice cream

This ice cream has bubble gum eggs in it and was made in our ice cream maker. We decided to add a splash of colouring to make it blue, and a bit more Easter-Like. Topping the whole thing off with sprinkles and every child at your Easter celebration will be thrilled.

This Easter falls right at the beginning of April. We are expected to be induced for baby girl April 1 – 7th, so we are anxious and excited for April to arrive. I know my kids can’t wait for baby sister but also for the Easter festivities as we usually have a big meal, and we will be making these again for every one of them.

The ice cream is so easy to make, and now that I know my husband can hit it out of the park – I will be sure to have him making this all summer long too. Last summer when I was freshly pregnant we went to the local ice cream shop a few times a week, and I got their pink bubble gum ice cream. It was my major weakness. Lucky for me right now I am still on my gestational diabetes diet. Otherwise, I’d eat this all up myself. It’s just as delicious as local ice cream shop bubble gum ice cream!

    Love this craft dessert for Spring and Easter. I think the egg would be so much fun to eat out of but I know they are as fragile as eggshells. Will make this with my nieces and nephews.

    I could eat ice cream all day, every day. Thankfully we’ve had a pretty mild winter here in California so the weather allows for it. This bubble gum Ice cream is going to be a fun Easter treat.

    I don’t have a kid nor am I nearby to my child relatives but the “kid friendly” applies to the kid in me so I’m making these! It seems too delicious to ignore.
