Frozen Cappuccino Cups

P6030768


One of JB's favorite desserts is a cappuccino chiller from TCBY.  It's a frozen coffee drink, and it is delicious.  These frozen cappuccino cups are very similar, but think less drink and more ice cream.  This picture does not do this dessert justice.  They are wonderful - cold, chocolately, not too rich.  So good on a hot summer day.  In case you haven't heard, we're having a heat wave in Alabama.  The heat index today was 105.  You should make these now.  They are THAT good.  

I should also mention that they're only 110 calories each.

Frozen Cappuccino Cups

Ingredients:
15 whole Oreos

2 Tablespoons Melted Butter 
3 ounces, weight Semi Sweet Chocolate, Chopped Into Chunks 
3 cups Breyers Coffee Ice Cream, Slightly Softened 
½ teaspoons Ground Cinnamon 
⅛ teaspoons Ground Nutmeg 

Toppings:
Extra Chocolate Cookie Crumbs 
Finely Chopped Pecans 
Chocolate Sauce 
Sweetened Whipped Cream 
Chocolate Curls

Directions: 

Place twelve cupcake liners into muffin cups. Crush cookies into crumbs. Add melted butter, then mix to combine. Press crumbs into twelve cupcake liners. Set aside. Mix softened ice cream with chocolate chunks, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Spoon into cupcake liners. Freeze until firm, then remove from muffin pan (leaving on the cupcake liners) and place in a Ziploc or other airtight container. 

To serve, peel off liners, place on a plate, and top with any or all of the toppings. You can also just serve them in the liners.

(Alternately, you can press nuts and/or crumbs into the top of the cups before freezing them.)
