    My daughter made this at Girl Scout camp, though not exactly gourmet, it sure is a fun and tasty treat for the kids to make. We use it ourselves now when we go camping.

      5 stars because it tastes great! We made three kinds, the vanilla, chocolate (just added 1/4 tsp cocoa powder instead of the vanilla) and cinnamon (added with the vanilla). All three were yummy..although I think we all prefered the chocolate. Now, it took FOREVER to actually turn into icecream, for us way longer then 20 mins..more like 45 mins, and we had to add more ice and salt. I am wondering if we crushed our ice too much, as it melted pretty quickly. We ended up wrapping hand towels around the bags to help our hands (they were going numb from the cold) and that made it much easier. Thanks for sharing this recipe, it was a fun family activity!
