“Pickle and Ice Cream Cupcakes (copycat From People magazine and on FOX 2 news) Would you think a girl was pregnant if you saw her eating pickles and ice cream together? I don't know much about it ! But I don't think doing crazy things with food makes her pregnant ! But probably assume that since that's one of the stereotypes of pregnacy. This was designed for our expectant mothers. Sort of combines the whole shootin' match in one dish. People always want to know, is it dill or sweet? Well, it's both, and it's much better than you'd think. For this unusual but very tasty ice cream, use the ice cream base for the Old Time Vanilla Ice Cream. Then add 2 teaspoons of dill weed and freeze according to the manufacturer’s directions. When the ice cream is nearly frozen, add in 3/4 cup of chopped sweet pickles. That was a Dill pickle ice cream recipe. Really? Did you actually crave pickles and ice cream? I wasn’t sure if that was just an old wives tale. They actually aren’t bad. Although,”

  9. I topped the cupcake with vanilla ice cream. Can anyone think of a flavor that would go better with pickle? The topic had never come up for me before and I figured vanilla would be a safe bet.
  10. I would love to hear any improvements and/or variations you make to this simple recipe. Enjoy!
