What's in it

Ingredients

Ice cubes (enough to fill each gallon-size bag about half full)

1 cup half and half

1/2 cup salt (The bigger the granules, the better. Kosher or rock salt works best, but table salt is fine.)

2 tablespoons sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 pint-size ziplock bag

1 gallon-size ziplock bag

Your favorite mixins such as chocolate chips, cereal pieces, or fresh fruit.

How to cook it

Directions

  • Combine the sugar, half and half, and vanilla extract in the pint-size bag and seal it tightly.
  • Place the salt and ice in the gallon-size bag, then place the sealed smaller bag inside as well. Seal the larger bag. Now shake the bags until the mixture hardens (about 5 minutes). Feel the small bag to determine when it's done.
  • Take the smaller bag out of the larger one, add mix-ins, and eat the ice cream right out of the bag. Easy cleanup too!
