Happy National Frozen Food Day! Although it may not be what we call, “ideal ice cream weather,” we have chosen to put on our party hats and carry on. To aid this process we have added a little something special called booze. So, bring on the weekend with these fun boozy frozen treat recipes.
Side note: Please keep out of reach from children.

2 ½ cups Coke
1/3 cup Captain Morgan Spiced Rum
1/3 cup Kahlua
1. Place all ingredients in a large glass and stir to combine. Pour mixture into popsicles mold.
2. Freeze for up to 2 hours or until starts to solidify enough to hold a popsicle stick upright. Insert popsicle sticks and finish freezing overnight. To release popsicles run hot water on the outside of popsicle molds for 2-3 seconds. Recipe found on endlesssimmer.com
Boozy Lucky Charms Milkshakes
1 ½ cups lucky charms marshmallows
2 cups milk
4 cups vanilla ice cream
1/3 cup marshallow vodka
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
A batch of marshmallow frosting

Add the marshmallows to a food processor and blend until powdery. It’s okay if a few larger pieces remain. Add the milk to a large bowl and pour in the blended marshmallows. Stir to combine, then let sit at room temperature for 30 minutes. Add the ice cream, marshmallow milk, vodka and vanilla extract to a blender. You can add extra cereal if you’d like. Blend until combined and pour into glasses. Top with frosting (or whipped cream) and some extra marshmallows. Found on: howsweeteats.com
White Russian Pudding Pops
2/3 cup sugar
¼ cup cornstarch
3 cups whole milk
3 large egg yolks
2 tsps pure vanilla extract
2.5 ounces vodka
2.5 ounces dark rum
2 ounces Kahlua
2 ounces Bailey’s Irish Cream
1. In a medium saucepan, whisk together sugar, cornstarch and salt. Continuing to whisk, add milk and egg yolks.
2. Heat mixture over medium heat and continue to whisk. When mixture starts to bubble, reduce to low heat and cook for one more minute. Remove from heat and pass through a fine sieve into a medium mixing bowl.
3. In a food processor, combine vanilla mixture and the rest of ingredients and process until smooth, approximately 2 minutes.
4. Pour mixture into 9oz disposable cups, filling half way (1/3 cup). Freeze for about 1 hour or until mixture starts to set.
5. Carefully insert a large cinnamon stick in the middle of each cup.
6. To unmold the ice pops, run them under lukewarm water for 10 seconds then slide them from the molds. Found on: mom.me
