FLAVORS FROM MY PAST.
ORANGE DREAM PUPPY CHOW!
In the “olden” days we used to call them 50/50 bars. Vanilla ice cream swirled with orange sherbet. It was my favorite! That’s what this puppy chow recipe reminds me of. Because this puppy chow reminds me of ice cream I thought it would be fun to give this treat as a party favor for an ice cream themed party. I love using the rocket pops because the gift can be used again for a Popsicle. Don’t have the rocket pops? How about serving them in ice cream cups. Either way they are cute and full of yummy goodness.
