This was pretty good ice cream, reminds me of Eddy's. I would recommend wrapping the ziploc bag in a towel or using oven mitts...it gets really cold. My 2 year old keeps asking me to make ice cream.

This was great! I had 10 children each make their own at my son's birthday party! They had a fantastic time and one of the little girls told me it was the best party ever! Note: the gallon bag gets very wet. I gave each of the children a hand towel to wrap their gal. bag inside and they squashed, squished and pounded the bag INSIDE the towel. Also note that getting as much air out of both bags helps to prevent the bags from opening. This was truely a super fun activity and the ice cream tastes GREAT!

This is a great idea for single servings. I've made ice cream with my Brownie Girl Scout Troop, by using a large coffee can and a small can (used to be 3# and 1#) Of course, the amounts were increased to make 4 servings. Fill the first can with the 1st 3 ingredients, then seal the can with duct tape. Place the small can in the center of the large can, fill with the salt and ice and then seal again with duct tape. Anyway, the girls formed a circle and played a game rolling the can to each other. The end result was a treat they all shared.

I really liked this recipe, its so simple! instead of using rock salt I simply used table salt & it turned out delicious! It would be perfect for babysitting kids; it is a fun way to keep occupied, I even loved it myself! Amazing!

Love it!!! Used one sandwich bag and one gallon Ziploc bag just as the recipe states. While squeezing the bags, wearing oven mitts helped to keep my hands warm. Ate it with blueberry syrup. YUM!

This was great! I don't have an ice cream maker, (although i really want one), but i really wanted some homemade ice cream. Maybe not as good as stuff made in an ice cream machine, but pretty close. I made 2 different bags, and added cinnamon to one of them. Delicious!

My husband loves ice cream so I made this for him as a surprise. It turned out great and was fun to make. We'll definitely make it again.

Update: We tried this again, but tripled the recipe. It is better to keep the recipe in single servings. Seems to work better. But Still a lot of fun and very yummy. It is mid winter here, and my 6 yr. old wants Ice Cream.. So I look here and what do I find? Yes. The answer I was looking for. I did not have half and half. I did however, have Canned evaporated milk. (mix with equal amounts to rehydrate) . So I used 1/4c canned evap. Milk and 1/4c water, the sugar and Vanilla. I also did not have any ice cubes. But, there was plenty of snow, beings there is a blizzard out side. I ended up using about 6 cups snow. Once the snow starts to melt the Ice cream sets up real quick. Keep checking it. No need to be real vigorous with the mixing, it is so easy to do..and cuts that craving for Ice Cream quickly.
