I decided to have interactive snacks for my crafts on Fridays. I thought, “What could be better for a snow theme than ice cream!” Therefore, I searched the web and found the following recipe at http://crafts.kaboose.com/ice-cream-in-a-bag.html.
Homemade Ice Cream in a Bag
by: the contributors of Kaboose.com
–1 tablespoon sugar
-1/2 cup milk or half & half
-1/4 teaspoon vanilla
-6 tablespoons rock salt
-1 pint-size plastic food storage bag (e.g., Ziploc)
-1 gallon-size plastic food storage bag
1. Fill the large bag half full of ice, and add the rock salt. Seal the bag.
2. Put milk, vanilla, and sugar into the small bag, and seal it.
3. Place the small bag inside the large one, and seal it again carefully.
4. Shake until the mixture is ice cream, which takes about 5 minutes.
5. Wipe off the top of the small bag, then open it carefully. Enjoy!
Tips: A 1/2 cup milk will make about 1 scoop of ice cream, so double the recipe if you want more. But don’t increase the proportions more than that — a large amount might be too big for kids to pick-up because the ice itself is heavy.
Notes: Eat fast! It melts pretty quickly.
