Watermelon Ice Cream Pops

All you need:

2 pints strawberry ice cream (or cherry), slightly softened
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips 
1 pint pistachio ice cream (we used mint chocolate chip)
10 popsicle sticks (optional)

Preparation

Line a loaf pan with plastic wrap. 

In a medium bowl, mix strawberry ice cream with mini chocolate chips. Pour ice cream into loaf pan. 

Spread a layer of ice cream over the strawberry layer. Place sticks down the middle of the loaf pan. Place into the freezer for a few hours until firm. 

Once firm, remove from the loaf pan and slice the ice cream in between each stick to make an ice pop! I just cut them into slices, look how cute!

Eat immediately or place them into individual baggies and keep them in the freezer until ready to eat.

Homemade Strawberry Shortcake

Ingredients
1 1/2 pounds strawberries, stemmed and quartered
5 tablespoons sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoons sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups heavy cream

Directions
Mix strawberries with 3 tablespoons sugar and refrigerate while juices develop, at least 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, remaining 2 tablespoons sugar, and salt in a medium bowl. Add heavy cream and mix until just combined. Place mixture in an ungreased 8-inch square pan and bake until golden, 18 to 20 minutes.

Remove shortcake from pan and place on a rack to cool slightly. Cut into 6 pieces and split each piece in half horizontally.

Spoon some of the strawberries with their juice onto each shortcake bottom. Top with a generous dollop of whipped cream and then the shortcake top. Spoon more strawberries over the top and serve.
