Winter may be the time to cozy up by the fire with a warm drink, but this activity becomes less enjoyable when green grass is visible outside. Why not celebrate the un-seasonally warm weather with some cold desserts instead? Remind yourself of negative temperatures by giving yourself a brain freeze with these frozen treats. We promise this is a way better (and tastier) alternative to frozen fingers or toes.
