Ice cream tacos


  • If the weather is warm, you will need to put these straight into the freezer as you make each one.
  • We used a palate knife to fill and smooth these tacos. It gives them a nice smooth edge.
  • We used melted cooking chocolate for these ice cream tacos but you could use a ready-made chocolate topping like Ice Magic.
  • If you are looking for a fruitier style frozen dessert then try this 3-ingredient mango ice cream. It's deliciously creamy too.
  • This 2-ingredient ice cream is so easy and you will probably already have the ingredients in your pantry.
  • Cherry and vanilla choc tops are so easy to make ahead for a crowd.
  • You can make these Ice cream Easter eggs for the cute little bunnies in your life.
  • This Ice cream sundae is better than a store-bought dessert because you can control the exact amount of toppings that you want.
