Pink Bubble Gum Ice Cream Cone Pigs
These adorable Pink Bubble Gum Ice Cream Cone Pigs
will bring the kid out in everyone. This fun treat is great for cooling off in the summer!
Were you one of those kids who loved finding bits of bubble gum inside your ice cream?
I have to admit the child in me loves the flavor of bubble gum ice cream but has never enjoyed finding bubble gum balls in every bite of my frozen treat.
Making my own homemade version was the perfect solution to the overload of bubble gum problem I’ve encountered in most bubble gum ice cream.
My version of this sweet treat is smooth and creamy throughout, with only a few bubble gum decorations adorning the outside of the ice cream scoop.
The decorations were necessary to make this scoop of bright pink goodness look like a pig.
Why a pig you ask? No particular reason, other than I though it was cute.
Pink Bubble Gum Ice Cream Cone Pigs
Ingredients: (makes 6 cones)
Bubble Gum Ice Cream-
recipe adapted from Domestic Rebel
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
1 dram (1 teaspoon) LorAnn bubble gum oil
pink gel food coloringDecorations-
6 ice cream cones
6 pieces pink bubble gum (I used Double Bubble)
12 candy eyes
6 curved chocolate sprinklesSupplies:
gumpaste dog bone tool (or use a lollipop stick)
Whisk heavy whipping cream, bubble gum oil, and pink food coloring to stiff peaks.Add sweetened condensed milk and whisk to combine.
I use my Kitchen-Aid stand mixer and this ice cream comes together in a few minutes.
Freeze ice cream for at least 3 hours.
Before serving, scoop ice cream onto cones then return to freezer for at least 15 minutes or up to 8 hours. If you leave them in the freezer for too long, the cones will become chewy.
The decorations are made out of bubble gum.Cut one piece of bubble gum into five slices, widthwise. Flatten and shape each slice into pointed ovals. Pinch one end into a sharper point. To give the ears a bit more shape use a gumpaste dog bone tool to create the indentation in each ear. Create a total of 12 ears for your 6 ice cream cone pigs.
Cut one piece of bubble gum in half, widthwise. Smooth out each piece as needed Use the dog bone tool to create two indentations for the nose. Create a total of 6 noses.In order to attach those noses to the scoops of bubble gum ice cream, you need to create a bubble gum cone to attach to the back of them. To do so, cut a piece of bubble gum into three slices. Pinch and shape the slice into a cone. Rub your finger on the flat part to make the gum a bit sticky and attach it to the backside of each bubble gum snout.
Select 6 curved chocolate sprinkles to use for the pigs’ mouths.
NOTE: If you don’t have a dog bone tool, you can use the end of a lollipop stick or wood skewer.
Working with one ice cream cone at a time, use a knife to create a small hole on the front side of the ice cream cone. Insert a bubble gum snout. Insert two ears. Press two candy eyes and a chocolate sprinkle smile onto the ice cream to create a total of 6 adorable pigs. Pop back into the freezer and grab another cone to decorate.You can make and decorate these cones, then place them back in the freezer for up to 8 hours. This is great if you are having a party.
Imagine how cute these would be served at a farm day party, as a treat after a petting zoo trip, or simply for some summer fun.
