This Recipe is so COOL! (It uses Ice Cream!)

Here is a recipe for these really yummy ice-creame pops

vanilla ice cream 
2 five ounce milk chocolate bars 
1/4 cup of shortening
1/2 cup of chopped nuts
take out 
sharp knife,
shallow pan,
measuring cups,
double boiler,
small bowl,
table knife.
step 1
 write names on spoons.
cut ice cream in half .cut
eache piece in half again.
step 2
stick a wooden spoon in each piece. place in a shallow pan. freeze until vary hard
step 3
put 2 inches water in bottom of double boiler. melt chocolate and shortening in top. mix. cool till warm 
step 4
spread chocolate on one side of pop. dip in nuts at once. repeat on other sides, bottom. store in freezer.
I wanted to make this recipe but we did not have a double boiler.  We tried melting the chocolate in a pan that was sitting in another pan of water.  It sort-of worked but not really that great.  One day my mom came home from grocery shopping and she said, "I have a surprise for you..."  and I somehow knew what it was IT WAS A NEW DOUBLE BOILER! And I have used it a couple times now with peanut goodies witch we will talk about later ...And I love it!  And as you can see, my little sister LOVED the ice cream treats!

My favorite pizza

I am beginning to be a cook and one of my favorite things to cook is a pizza recipe that I made up myself!  
Here it is:
 2 freezer rolls for each person
 Ragu sauce (or any other pizza sauce )
 shredded cheese (I like to use cheddar)
put any toppings you like (my mom likes vegetables on it)   bake at 400 degrees for about 10 - 15 minutes.
 Heres how I got the idea.  One day I was making rolls with my mom (and a bunch of other things.)   I nibbled on a piece of dough and said, "This tastes like pizza dough!" so I decided to make a personal pizza and thus the recipe was born!  So first I stretched out one of the thawed out pieces of dough and made it into a small pizza.   On another day, I stuffed the pizza sauce and pepperoni into the dough and baked it.  It also had cheese in it.  This is actually called a "Stromboli".  My dad likes the pizza better than the Stromboli.    My grandma likes the Stromboli.  My mom really wants me to start making mine with vegetables like she does but I am not too big on vegetables.  Pizza sauce is made of tomatoes so at least that is a start!
