Strawberry Ice-Cream Ham Recipe

Strawberry Ice-Cream Ham Recipe

This menu item will give your kids a chance to really ham it up! For the best results, you'll want to prepare a slice the day before. When it's time to present the meal, add it to the plate at the last minute.


  • Half-gallon strawberry ice cream
  • Caramel candy (the kind with the white center)


First, cut or peel away the container from a half gallon of strawberry ice cream. With a long knife dipped in warm water, slice off a 1-inch-thick slab (a parent's job) and place it on a piece of waxed paper.

Press a caramel candy into the center of the ice-cream slab. If necessary, use a rubber spatula or the back of a spoon to smooth the ice cream and fill in any gaps around the "ham bone." Then shape the sides of the slab to resemble the rounded edge of a real ham steak.

Cover the slice with another piece of waxed paper and fold together the edges of both sheets so that the ice cream is wrapped. Store the wrapped slice in the freezer on a cookie sheet. To serve, gently peel the waxed paper from the bottom and set the slice, unwrapped side down, on a breakfast plate. Slowly peel away the second piece of waxed paper.
