Great Eats: Homemade Strawberry Shortcake Ice Cream Bars

It’s the first day of June, which means we’re less than a month away from the first day of summer.

At this time of the year, I enjoy fruity desserts (like the very special recipe I shared here yesterday) and cold treats that are easy to consume on a sticky, sweaty day.

I thought about one of my favorite store-bought ice cream treats, Strawberry Shortcake Dessert Bars by Good Humor (pictured above). The nostalgic ice cream bar offers a sweet strawberry center and an irresistible strawberry shortcake crumb coating.

Read on for a delicious, easy (copycat) version to make your very own bars at home!

Instructions
  1. Divide ice cream or gelato among ice-pop molds, insert sticks, and freeze until firm, at least 4 hours.
  2. Meanwhile, pulse cookies in a food processor until fine crumbs form. Transfer half of crumbs to a plate. Add strawberries to remaining crumbs in food processor and drizzle with butter. Pulse a few times to create strawberry crumbs. Stir strawberry crumbs into plain crumbs on plate.
  3. Line a large plate or rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Dip molds briefly into hot water. Working one at a time, remove ice pop from mold and thaw 1 minute. Dip in crumbs, turning to coat and pressing to adhere. Transfer pops to prepared plate and freeze again at least 15 minutes before serving.
