Ice cream, any flavor you want
Ice cream scoop
Muffin tin, or baking tray
Toppings (sprinkles, crushed cookies, small candies)
Step 1: Before the party starts, fill the muffin tin with cupcake liners. Scoop ice cream and add to each liner. Immediately set the muffin tin in the freezer to keep the ice cream frozen.
Step 2: When you are ready to serve the ice cream, remove from the freezer, and add some whipped cream, crumbled cookies, and, of course, sprinkles.
