Similar to a Dairy Queen Blizzard these Lucky Charms Avalanches are perfect for St.Patricks Day!
I can’t believe it’s almost St.Patricks day. It feels like just yesterday we were watching the ball drop and now spring is just around the corner. I’m really looking forward to a “meltdown” day because we still have snow up to our knees. These lucky charms avalanches will be the first thing I make after the snow melts.
The crunchy cereal combined with the creamy vanilla ice cream is a match made in heaven. When you bite into one of the marshmallows your tastebuds go for a ride. I honestly don’t know why Dairy Queen hasn’t thought to add cereal to their Blizzards.
These lucky charms avalanches would be perfect for kids. This recipe makes one huge glass so you could easily divide it into two smaller portions if you’re serving it to a child. If you’ve never had a Dairy Queen blizzard you might be wondering what one is. Well I like to say that a blizzard or an avalanche in this instance is somewhere between soft serve ice cream and regular ice cream. Sometimes soft serve can be a little runny so it really all depends.
Dairy queen mixes in things like cookie dough, Oreos, Reese Pieces, and cheesecake. I wanted to take the blizzard to a whole new level so that’s why I decided to make my own line of avalanches.
On my blog for Valentine’s day I came up with a recipe for Red Velvet avalanches. They were a hit with my boyfriend. I’ve also been working on another amazing flavor which will be on my blog later this month. We apparently love ice cream in this house! I love recipes that are simple but impressive so that’s why I’ve been so addicted to making these avalanches.
