Ice Cream in a Bag Recipe With Nut-Free Chocolate Candies

My kids are ice cream fanatics, well who am I kidding? My whole family loves ice cream. It’s one of my biggest weaknesses! Which is the biggest reason that we can’t buy it during our grocery shopping trips. A carton of ice cream in my home is as good as gone in 2-3 days.

Every once in a while my kids will ask for a small cup of ice cream and who am I to deny them? So we decided to try out the recipe for ice cream in a bag.

Making ice cream in a bag is a great way to get active in the kitchen with kids, make a little science experiment and get a tasty treat in the end.

Ice Cream in a Bag Recipe With Nut-Free Chocolate Candies

Ice Cream in a Bag is very simple to make, here is what you need:

  • 2 Zip lock bags – One in a gallon size and the other in a sandwich bag size
  • 1/2 Cup Milk or if you prefer a creamier texture, use Half and Half
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Small handful, chopped up, Skippers from Vermont Nut Free Chocolates (They are just like M&M’s, but nut free!)
  • Drizzle of chocolate syrup or if you are hardcore like us, Magic Shell!
  • 3 tbsp salt – any salt will work, rock salt or sea salt will work best
  • 3 cups crushed ice

Directions

  1. Grab your sandwich sized bag and add the milk, sugar and vanilla. Seal it up tight and set it aside.
  2. In your Gallon sized bag, add 3 cups of crushed ice and 3 tbsp of salt. You can use any salt, rock or sea salt will work best. If you use regular salt, just note that your processing time may take a bit longer.
  3. Put your smaller, sealed up, bag into the bag of ice/salt and then close the top.

  4. Shake! Shake! Shake!! Let the kids do it, saves your arm muscles and it’s a ton of fun for them. Shake for a good 5-10 minutes, depending on what kind of salt you used, until the liquid mixture has formed into something solid.

  5. When done shaking, your ice cream will look like this. I used skim milk for our ice cream, if you want a thicker and creamier texture then try something like half and half.Ice Cream in a Bag Recipe With Nut-Free Chocolate Candies
