  • 2 oranges
  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 8 ounces vanilla ice cream or 8 ounces vanilla frozen yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon caramel topping or 1 tablespoon butterscotch topping

  • Cut off top of the oranges and scoop out pulp with a melon baler or serrated spoon down to the pith, or white membrane, inside orange.

  1. My mom helped me make these for a planned play date. My friends and I thought they were fun to eat, and my mom liked that they were something different.


I am a very talented 5 year old chef that loves to cook! I started cooking when I was just turning 3 with the help of NcMysteryShopper. My Dad is very proud of me and I love to cook dinner for him. I can now cook a few things on my own with hardly any help! I also like to take photographs of the food i make! I love Hot Wheels! My favorite movies are Shriek, Nemo and Madagascar. My dog's name is Harley. I have two hermit crabs. Their names are "Escar" and "go" (Escargot)and they get lost a lot... but I find them. <img src=""> I want my own account so that I can leave my own reviews cause sometimes I don't like what NcMysteryshopper and my dad like to eat. NcMysteryShopper says that my opinion is important too! So all other 5 year olds can have their moms read my reviews to them. I cannot type or spell really well yet so I told NC what to type for me. She is good at the computer. <img src=""><img src=""> <img src="">
