When I was pregnant with my oldest son, now 16, I craved Slurpees every day. A Slurpee, for those unfamiliar, is a slushy froze drink sold at 7-11 convenience stores. Over the years since, I’ve grown to love all sorts of frozen drinks. I’ve learned how to make a couple of tasty ones at home, but am always looking for new delicious, frozen drink recipes to try. When offered the opportunity to check out Frozen Delights, all I could think is “oh my goodness, I must have it”.

From cover to cover this magazine is chock full of frozen delights that will make your mouth water.

Plus a bunch of drinks too! Basically, I want to try to make most of the things in magazine. The photos and recipes inside the magazine look just as good as the one on the cover. I recommend anyone that likes to drink frozen yummy treats like me grab this magazine while they can.
Here’s a recipe for Chocolate-Peanut Butter Bombe, courtesy of the publisher.
Chocolate-Peanut Butter Bombe
Total time: 30 minutes plus freezing
Makes 16 Servings
- 2 pints chocolate-peanut butter ice cream
- 2 pints dulce de leche ice cream
- 8 fun-size peanut-chocolate candy bars (such as Snickers)
- 1 bottle (7.25 oz.) chocolate-and-peanut butter shell ice cream topping
1. Coat 12-cup bowl with nonstick cooking spray; line with plastic wrap, extending wrap over sides by at least width of bowl.
2. Cut carton off chocolate-peanut butter ice cream. Cut ice cream in ¾ –inch-thick rounds. Place slides in bowl to cover bottom and side to 1 inch from top, cutting slices to fit. With spatula, fill in gaps. Freeze 20 minutes or until firm. Meanwhile, refrigerate dulce de leche ice cream to soften slightly.
3. Cut candy bars into ¼ -inch-thick slices (total 1 cup). Use potato masher or large spoon to stir dulce de leche ice cream to soften evenly; stir in candy. Spoon ice cream into bowl; spread level. Sprinkle crushed cookie crumbs over top; press into ice cream. Fold plastic wrap over ice cream to cover. Freeze bombe overnight or up to 2 weeks.
4. Up to 1 day ahead; cut cardboard or paper plate to fit on crumbs. Invert bombe and cardboard together onto wire rack over rimmed baking sheet. Remove bowl and plastic wrap. Quickly smooth wrinkles. If ice cream starts to melt, refreeze before coating. Pour most of shell coating over bombe; use spatula to spread evenly. Transfer bombe to plate and drizzle with remaining shell coating. Freeze until serving.
