I have a fun treat for you today! I am a lover of ice cream. There is just something so perfect about creamy, cold and sweet mixing together. I decided to give making ice cream a try again, and the end result was almost magical. Seriously. This ice cream is so delicious, you will be begging for more!
I began with a simple vanilla ice cream and made enough for a large ice cream maker, but I only have a small ice cream maker. Because of that, I was able to make two different types of ice cream and only had to make one batch of the vanilla. Tomorrow I will show you the ice cream that I made with the other half of the mixture.
To begin, you will need to blend these ingredients together and then put them in the ice cream maker.
- 1 1/2 C Whole Milk
- 1 1/2 C Sugar
- 1/4 tsp Salt
- 1 can Evaporated Milk
- 1 1/2 TBS Pure Vanilla
- 2 C Whipping Cream
Here comes the fun part. Now you get to add in the mix ins. I chose to do a yummy s’mores ice cream first and boy was I glad that I did! It is delicious! Here’s what I mixed in:
- 1/2 small container of Marshmallow cream
- 1 cup Golden Grahams
- 1 Cadbury Dairy Milk Bar chopped
When the ice cream is just about done freezing in the ice cream maker, add these mix ins in a little at a time. You want to make sure that they are evenly distributed. My girls even got in on the adding mix ins action. (or eating mix ins, both were acceptable) 🙂
After they are all mixed in, you are ready to eat it, or put it in the freezer for later. I found that letting it sit in the freezer for a little bit was a good idea so that the ice cream was still scoopable, but not melting immediately.
Go make some and enjoy! You will be SO glad that you did.
