I don’t know if I like a good workout…for the kids or my curiosity got the best of me. I saw this in the “Sunbury America” and had to try it. I have fond memories of my brother and I kicking the can with ice, salt and cream and finally getting to eat real ice cream.
There are easier ways to make ice cream.. I like the easy way…plenty of favorite brands usually those that have the least ingredients. I believe this will be one of those moments that create fun memories that will last you a life time like my brother and I.
You can enjoy the antics of your children, finding unique ways to shake their bag of cream into ice cream. It’s quite entertaining and the bonus are delicious results . Then you can all sit down with a glass of ice water maybe cookies or candy mash ins, like the one featured in this post. It’s just a peanut butter cup I made with milk/white chocolate and candied apricots on top. If you put in mash-in like candy give them a ruff chop so they aren’t to big.
