Neapolitan Oreo Ice Cream Bites
A few weeks ago when my mom and nephew, Liam, came for a visit, I surprised them with neapolitan oreo ice cream bites. After they spent all day driving from Minnesota to Illinois, plus lots of stops along the way, I thought they could use a frozen treat.
I’ve always had a love for ice cream and I guess I thought I was just an ice cream person.. but I’ve come to learn that I get my love for ice cream from my mom. So mom, thanks for passing on your love for ice cream, because it simply makes life sweeter :)
It was a blast having them visit, and it was my nephew’s first time in “Ill-a-noyz” as he pronounced it, haha. I think all Illinois residents get a kick out of hearing the different pronunciations of Illinois, which if you’re not sure, the “s” is silent.
We packed a lot of things in while they were visiting. I work as a nanny so my mom and Liam were able to join me the kids for a day of fun, it was really great for my mom to meet the kids and the family I work for. We also toured the nearby university at which Ryan works, and got to climb one of the bell towers on campus. We were able to watch this wonderful 80 year old woman play the bells during passing period, it was really neat.
And of course, we ate lots of ice cream. These neapolitan bites are just the right amount of vanilla, strawberry and chocolate ice cream, with a delicious and crunchy oreo crumb crust. But it gets even better! Drizzle on some chocolate syrup and add lots of oreo crumbs and you have the best homemade frozen dessert.
