Audrey's friend the Ice Cream Lady contacted us again. This time it was to inform us about the fun holiday flavors from Blue Bunny. She asked if we would be interested in an ice cream party. Aren't we always? If there is one thing I will sacrifice a few calories for it is ice cream. And this is our favorite, Blue Bunny.
We were signed up to bring snacks this week at our play group so I decided that Mom's Time needed to be our venue for the party. I browsed the Blue Bunny website for some great recipes (of which there are many) and picked up supplies for our Holiday Ice Cream Party.
Blue Bunny sent the ice cream and a gift card for supplies. All we needed was for the day to arrive.
I found a really cute Peppermint Holiday Tree on the Blue Bunny site and was lucky enough to snag just the right size mold at our local grocer, with a lid! The tree is so easy to make and really looks adorable on the table. I wish the lighting was not so bad so you could appreciate how cute the tree really was.

The playgroup is held at a church with an open floor plan. Moms gather near the coffee and snacks while the children run off to play. This time most of the children gathered around immediately to grab an ice cream snack first.

Those plates in front of the children have ice cream bites from the Hot Cocoa, Sugar Cookie, and Peppermint ice cream sandwiches. These are three amazing holiday flavors available right now from Blue Bunny. Ice cream bites were the perfect solution to ice cream with active children. I recommend this serving method any time you want to provide a fun ice cream treat to little ones.

After most of the children had grabbed a plate Maurene remained behind grazing at the ice cream bar. I was too busy taking pictures to notice she had grabbed a spoon and was eating the ice cream tree directly from the container. Fortunately all of the moms help each other so someone caught her before she got to her second bite. It appears her favorite is the Perfectly Peppermint.
These are holiday flavors so I do not expect them to be around for long. I have seen several flavors available at our local grocers. Grab a tub or box while you can!
