This was VERRY Creamy! I used a gallon and 1/2 freezer and it turned out great. I have been making ice cream for 25 years and this was a first time I ever had a hard time getting it out of the freezer. It was very creamy! This will be made instead of our old standby! Thanks

This is a very dense ice cream! I happen to love it that way, but it's pretty hard to scoop out once it's frozen, you should let it defrost in the fridge for about 1/2 an hour before serving. Super creamy because of the condensed milk -- I added melted chocolate and it was almost like eating frozen fudge. Next time I make this I will use less sugar, it was just a little too sweet. Thanks, Beachgirl, I see many versions of this coming out of my freezer in the future.
