7 Fun Frozen Treats You Can DIY

Nothing says summer quite like an indulgent frozen treat.

While I enjoy light and polite skinny ice cream bars for myself on occasion, and try to keep it on the healthier side for the day-to-day treats I give my daughter, when it comes to summer entertaining, I forgo calorie counting in lieu of enjoying something fun and truly decadent.

A big scoop of real vanilla ice cream sandwiched between two freshly baked cookies is always a favorite, or sometimes it's as simple as a frozen candy bar.

Whatever your pleasure, here are some ideas for truly fun summer treats your kids will love—all for $8 and under!

There's a range of effort involved in these frozen desserts—from simply freezing purchased goods to going all-out with an ice cream maker, so you can choose just how much effort you want to put in. Either way, frozen yumminess awaits!

      Thank you sjdemo, the graham crackers would stand up better to the ice cream.
