Monster Ice Cream Cups

The full ingredients list and instructions are found in the printable recipe card at the end of this post. I highly recommend reading the blog post all the way through so that you don’t miss any tips or substitution suggestions and to ensure that you have all the ingredients and equipment required as well as understand the steps and timings involved.

For the easiest dessert ever for a Halloween party or after a spooky family dinner, make these ice cream cups! (Should that be Monster Eyes-cream?!)

They are a fun, kid-friendly dessert made with rainbow sherbet – or any other flavor that you enjoy!

The kids can help you decorate the ice cream with candy eyeballs either before the party starts or you can let your guests decorate their own.

Or you could set up a fun Monster Dessert Bar with different flavor ice creams, sherbets and/or sorbets. Plus a whole bunch of candy eyeballs and other monster themed sprinkles!

Set out bowls and spoons, and let guests build their own monster cups!
