Rich and creamy Oscar goodness

Rich and creamy Oscar goodnessOne of the best foods to enjoy while watching the Oscars? Ice cream! No other treat brings on passion, drama and delicious mouth sensation than this cold, tasty dish.

And just in time for the "Golden Guy"'s red carpet entrance this Sunday, the famous Cold Stone Creamery Custom Creations (with locations across North America) has created an exclusive series of recipes for QMI Agency to reflect the year's top movies up for "Best Picture."These cinematic creations were developed by Andrea Hughes, Cold Stone Creamery Canada's resident ice cream expert.

"By mixing nuts, fruits and candy into our smooth and creamy ice cream on a frozen granite stone - called 'the stone' -- we're actually more like ice cream artists," says Hughes. Cold Stone Creamery ice cream is categorized by industry experts as "Super Premium" because it's made fresh every day in every store - putting Cold Stone completely in a class of its own.

Headquartered in Scottsdale, Ariz., Cold Stone Creamery operates more than 1,450 locations in 12 countries worldwide and Canadians can find them in select Tim Hortons across the country. Check out the company's Facebook page and enjoy these sweet interpretations of the top films up for Oscar:

THE BLACK SWAN - Graceful yet dark, keeps you on your toes: chocolate ice cream with cherries, fudge and dark chocolate shavings. THE FIGHTER - What an athlete would eat to fuel-up before a big fight: banana ice cream, bananas, peanut butter and almonds.

INCEPTION - This film is nuts and out there. It blows your mind: psychedelic green mint ice cream, brownies, almonds and fudge.

THE KIDS ARE ALL RIGHT - Bright blue cotton candy ice cream, sprinkles and gummy bears - every child requests these!

THE KING'S SPEECH - Perfect end to a feast of bangers and mash - middle of the road English fare: French vanilla ice cream, brownie and a hint of decadence, fit for a monarch, with luscious caramel.

127 HOURS - The Sinless Smoothie has healing fruits that also harken the bloody gore of the movie: strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, ice, - bright red and chunky!

THE SOCIAL NETWORK - A large take out container of sweet cream ice cream, lots of Oreos and fudge to share with your social network. Who wouldn't "like" this?

TOY STORY 3 - Yummy cake batter ice cream meets fudge, cookie dough and sprinkles.

TRUE GRIT - the White Hat (good guy) inspired creation: French vanilla ice cream, graham cracker pie crust, caramel, white chocolate chips and pecans. The cracker adds some "grit" and pecans and white chocolate chips bring a nice crunch to this light coloured creation.

WINTER'S BONE - a mountain girl is the heroine in this movie, why not a Rocky Road inspired creation? Chocolate ice cream, marshmallows, Snickers bar, fudge.
