Layers of oreo cookies, chocolate ice cream, vanilla ice cream, and strawberry ice cream make up these fun and easy Neapolitan ice cream pops!
It’s that time of year where I abandon my oven, and frozen and no-bake treats reign supreme. Because it’s just too hot for anything else!
I spotted these Neapolitan ice cream pops in a magazine a few weeks ago and immediately knew I had to try them. Such a fun idea! And they turned out just as easy to put together as I’d guessed— there’s just a few ingredients, almost no prep time, and the freezer does all work. They’re perfect for summer play dates and parties, or simply for storing in the fridge for a cool treat on a hot afternoon.
Tips to avoid freezer burn
- Always make sure frozen treats are tightly wrapped. I like to double wrap to ensure everything is airtight, either using two layers of plastic wrap, or a layer of plastic wrap and a layer of foil.
- Keep your freezer cold! Set thermostat at 0ºF or the lowest setting.
- If possible, store frozen treats near the back of the freezer and/or away from the door. Also, try to open the door minimally.
- Enjoy quickly. Frozen treats like these ice cream pops are best within the first few days.
