I was cruising around my favorite places and pinning like a mad woman today. I just had to share one of my faves!
I found this recipe for homemade ice cram in a zip top baggie and when I realized that we had the ingredients, we had to try it immediately!
I used the recipe from 2 Little Hooligans and her directions and photos were easy and helpful.
1 Cup half and half
2 Tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
in a small zip top baggie.
Then put 1/2 cup coarse, canning, or table salt
into a large zip top bag halfway filled with ice cubes.
Nestle the small bag into the large bag and then shake for 5 minutes.
WAIT- you zipped those bags well, right?
My hands got cold ( go figure the kids wouldn't help with the actual work of this one), so I used the dishtowel shake method...it's a thing.
and dang-don't my nails look fun?
After 5 minutes we pulled out or goodie bag and had some delicious ice-cram! Next time we will probably get a little creative and add chocolate chips or cookie dough and see what happens!
What a fun and easy treat on a warm summer afternoon. It was actually worth getting out of the kiddie pool for!
