Trying all those recipes should keep us busy for the next few years! We decided to start with these Ice Cream Flowerpots from Disney's Family Cookbook.
To make them, you need: clear plastic cups, green drinking straws, chocolate ice cream, Oreos, green Fruit Slices, gumdrops, and toothpicks. (You also need Sunkist Fruit Gems, but I didn't know this when I took the picture. More on that later....)
Step 2: Twist 4 Oreos to separate their halves. Place the non-frosting sides into a ziplock bag and crush to make crumbs. Pour the crumbs on top of the ice cream to create the look of soil. Place the cups in the freezer.

I love the way the flowers look with the Sunkist Fruit Gem centers! Despite the frustrations along the way, this was a really fun project and definitely one we'll do again.
