Blogger Brooke is right: Sometimes you just need ice cream. Check out this great idea for Bubblegum Ice Cream Bars at Babble.com’s The Family Kitchen. Anyone spending hot days with kids needs activities to nab the borings and cool treats for cool playtime breaks. These ice cream bars are a great kid-friendly activity, and fun for adults too. The best part is, all it takes are popsicle sticks, gum balls, and a rectangular carton of ice cream. Of course, I suppose you could stick other things to your ice cream bars. What’s your adult version? Chocolate-covered espresso beans?
