Homemade 0reo Overload

Yesterday, Ashley from After Nine to Five (the shop and the blog) posted her homemade ice cream treat.

It made me hungry.

And it made me think.

Jon and I live smack in the middle of a cute little town. It's really convenient because there is a pharmacy, post office, bridal shoppe (for my dress), and several eateries within walking distance. The different places to eat include a classic diner, some mid-priced places, and a couple fancy restaurants.

And an ice cream shop.

It's so easy to just walk there, grab a sundae, and walk home. But it's so expensive! There has to be a better way to get my summer ice cream fix.

So I stopped at the grocery store on the way home from work yesterday. I spent $5 to get a package of 0reos and a container of vanilla frozen yogurt. With those, plus the chocolate syrup and chocolate chips that we already had, and I created my own 0reo Overload at home!

I decided not to include the fudge, since there seemed to be enough chocolate in there already. And I didn't mind using the frozen yogurt rather than the sweet cream ice cream, because their ice cream is too sweet for me anyway. Plus, after the chocolate syrup is mixed in, it tastes sweeter.

There's plenty left to make several more sundaes, and it's much more cost-efficient than spending $7 or $8 on one small sundae.

I can't wait to try new sundaes!
