powder 2 trays of ice cubes 6 tbsp. salt Waterproof winter gloves Chocolate or butterscotch chips
Flavored syrups and flavoring extracts. Step 1. Put the milk and sugar in the quart-sized
bag and seal it. For vanilla ice cream, add vanilla extract; for chocolate ice cream,
add cocoa powder. Throw in a quarter of a cup of chocolate or butterscotch chips if
you like. Experiment with other varieties by using ½ to 1 tsp. of flavored syrups like
strawberry or caramel or extracts like lemon or almond. Step 2. Put the ice and the salt
in the gallon-sized bag. Step 3. Put the smaller bag inside the bigger bag and seal it. Step
4. Shake the larger bag vigorously for seven to 10 minutes. Wear winter gloves while you
shake; the bag is cold! Step 5. Remove the small bag, which now contains ice cream. Snip
a hole in the corner of the bag and squeeze it into a dish. Makes one serving. Did you

  1. It works with almost any milk if I am not mistaken. Also size if bags are irelvent just need one to hold ice preferably larger but if same size just don't completely fill ingredients bag to top so it can go in ice bag and shake it up.

  2. I'm on my brothers account and I don't have syrup so I just throw in some frozen strawberries white sugar and water in a microwave and it becomes syrup then I follow the instructions and skip vanilla

  3. ….umm..can't we just put the milk and sugar and flavouring into a ziplock box or something and then put it in the freezer?

  4. I tried this and no offense but it was way to sweet and tasted like something else, sorry but I rate this this 1/10 👎

  5. My friend and I made chocolate icecream and it was deliosus p.s. we only shook it for 5 min and it was perfect

  6. She's using a dry measuring cup for the wet ingredients. Might make a difference if you use the right tools.

  7. The bag is not the only thing that got cold 1:23 (Her right one) Sorry, I'm just say'n.. Us fellas notice these things.
