Easy Recipes: Homemade Ice Cream with Iced Gem Biscuits
What a beautiful Sunday! Not too humid, if I may say so. The past few days had been unbearably hot that it’s been very difficult to stay away from sodas and Ice Cream. So if you have been pretty successful with your diet enough to deny yourself of these summer quenchers, good on you!
Last month, we received one of the best treats everrrrrr — Iced Gem Biscuits! I’ve been munching on Iced Gems since my preschool days so it’s not surprising that my kiddos love it just as much.
Baon mula noon hanggang ngayon (Snacks then and now)
I don’t know about you but Iced Gem biscuits take me back to some of the best times in my childhood. Like I said, I’ve known it since preschool. My mom used to run a preschool with a small store where my classmates can buy snacks, and Iced Gem was one of the most popular sellers.
Iced Gem was also a staple in my lunch box. I would share it with classmates during recess before we go running off to play skip rope or race around the play ground.
My kids’ childhood may be slightly different because they’re home schooled, but Iced Gem biscuits make these new memories just as sweet as mine had been.
Vanilla Ice Cream made better with Iced Gem biscuits
Anyway, I tried to keep the bags of Iced Gem biscuits away from the kids for a while because I wanted to create some fun desserts for them, but after a week, I just had to give in. I mean, how can you take away such delights from them, right?
So anyway, they ate all of them in two days time. Yup, you read it right — two days. And we got 4 packs? I did manage to keep a pack of Choco Iced Gems which I used to top our homemade Vanilla Ice Cream which I served our young tornadoes today.

Iced Gem Biscuits
How to make:
1. Put a few scoops of Ice Cream in a cup.
2. Add in candy and marshmallow sprinkles.
3. Add chocolate syrup.
4. Top with as many Iced Gem Biscuits.
So easy to make with your kids. If you have small ones like mine, this a great DIY dessert for them to make.
Why, even the Ice Cream is easy to do.
My 6-year old Judah was the one who prepared the Ice Cream yesterday. In our case, it takes 24 hours to chill our Ice Cream so aside from learning how to make one, he also learns that some good things take time.

awwww This is my Childhood too! I remember eating the biscuits first before the icing on top ? Thanks for this. This is such a fun and easy way to decorate a dessert. love it!
The nostalgia of my Elementary days. I used to have Iced Gems as my baon in school too during my Elementary days. Sprinkling it in Ice Cream is a nice idea!
Love ko to. I always look for this whenever we go for vacation. 🙂 I gave some to my kids but they did not appreciate it well. (Yet) haha love this. 🙂

I am sure kids would have been drooling over it and looks very appealing. This is perfect for the summer weather these days.
Yes, this is popular biscuits when I was young too. But I am not fond of this, I rather eat Marie biscuits. I’ve seen some kids who eat the colorful icing before the biscuits. 🙂

Ahhh! One of my fave childhood foods! It’s wonderful that they still have it, even up to now. My son loves Iced gem too, esp the icing!
I love ice gem cookies since I was a kid. This would really be great with ice cream.
I still eat Iced Gems. When I saw a close sari-sari store selling them, I just had to taste it again. They`re only around Php 5-7 each plastic. I didn`t know they have chocolate Iced Gems.

Childhood snacks is making a comeback with new packaging! Nice to know that they are innovating and the recipe is definitely very feasible~
I remember those biscuits from my childhood years too! As I read your post, I could taste the sweet flavor come right back. What a treat!

Ice gem is a favorite. Since bata pa ako and my boys learned of this delicious and cute biscuit because I would always get a pack or two kapag naggrocery kami. I havent tried making it as a topping sa ice cream. Siguradong patok to sa mga boys!
I see my kids having their fill of Iced Gem topped Vanilla Ice Cream. Thanks for sharing.
