Here are some photos of our pawty for Poppy.
Mom made us get up early for our walk and breakfast so we would be ready to tell poppy
HAPPY 50th BIRTHDAY!!
We dawned (mom made us wear them) our Happy Birthday tiaras and we greeted him when woke up,
he smiled and giggled a bit--maybe cuz we looked rather silly in these stupid tiaras.
We sang and danced.
We gave poppy his big bag of presents from US,
we did our best to assist him in checking out the bag of loot.
Guess what he found in the bottom of the bag....our most favorite things---BIG BONES!!
Wonder how those got in his birthday bag??? BOL
Best part...Poppy said he didn't care for those big bones and said WE COULD HAVE THEM!!
Yes, it was the BEST party EVER.
We helped mom make this yummy ice cream cake.
MOM's Nutter Butter -Butterfinger Ice Cream Cake
Crust: 3/4 pkg of Nutter butter cookies
mom says put them in the freezer overnight and then crush them in your blender/food processor (says it doesn't get all clumpy that way)
1/4 cup of melted butter or margarine
Mix crushed cookies and butter and pat into bottom of spring form pan.
Freeze til solid.
*** Oreo cookies is another option for the crust.
Place one small jar of chocolate ice cream topping on frozen cookie layer--return to freezer.
**again you can adjust the ice cream topping to match your flavors.
Ice Cream Layer--now you could just soften whatever flavor ice cream you like or mom mixes her own....
1/2 gallon of vanilla ice cream and 3 large butter finger candy bars crushed (again freeze before crushing)
Mix ice cream and crushed butterfingers til soft, and layer onto ice cream topping layer. Freeze.
topping--- save a bit of crushed cookies and chocolate sauce and layer it on top.
Lots of different combinations of flavors to make--some of our favorites are:
mint chocolate chip/ oreo
