Long ago on a far away planet I was actually a child. I had a great Mother, she was always looking for things to amaze, amuse or teach me something, and upon that rare occasion treat us kids. This is one of those things. Mystery Cups are a kid's treat but adult fall right in line also. They are unbelievably easy to make and store and just a little goes a long way when needed. I can not tell you how highly I recommend these for ever home freezer on this planet.
All you need is small Dixie Cups (container) Small bathroom size work great!
Ice Cream (Plain works great). I would use Blue Bell but currently its unavailable.
A little extra..... made by Hershey's
Now comes the mystery....... sweet buttery crunchie crumbles, which are Sooooooo hard to make...NOT!
So you take a cup, add a small scoop of ice cream.
a very little syrup
Rinse and repeat
A very little goes a long way...... kids go crazy for 'em, so do adults but they don't want ya to notice. They can sit in your freezer in large ziploc's (after a days hard freeze to set). Kids know they are there and become a little easier to manage, its win/win.
Secret Crumble Recipe (very hard)
1 stick melted butter (use the real stuff for heavens sake)
1 Cup brown sugar
2 Cups Corn Flakes
You can add variations like strawberry topping vice chocolate, Toffee bits, sprinkles, etc etc..... But try the easy way first, you may decide to not mess with it. Great for a large BBQ party for dessert.
And seriously, the little 5 or 7 ounce cups are great cause a larger cup could hurt you. LOL
Its an amazing and easy dessert that will keep 'em begging for more.
My Baby Sister turns 60 tomorrow, I am making up a full tray full of these to freeze tonight, she'll remember 'em as a kid. Hope they make her smile. Good GWAD 60 years old.......
If you'll try 'em,I swear you'll like 'em.
