Ice Cream In A Can!
A wonderful activity to do with children at a birthday party, or any kind of party, is making Ice Cream in a Can. This is a very simple recipe that can be flavored just by throwing goodies into the can. The ice cream is frozen by rolling a can across the lawn (read directions below). Children love this activity and the end result is sweet and creamy.
Ice Cream In A Can
1 pasteurized egg (try Eggbeaters)
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon instant vanilla pudding mix
1 cup milk
1 cup half-and-half cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup rock salt
1 pound crushed ice
In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg, sugar, instant pudding, milk, half and half and vanilla.
Pour the mixture into a 12 ounce size coffee can. Cover the top with plastic wrap, and then the plastic lid.
Place the filled coffee can into an empty 34.5 ounce coffee can (the big ones). Fill the empty space with crushed ice, sprinkle generously with rock salt, and cover with the plastic lid.
Roll the cans around on the floor for about 20 minutes. If the center of the ice cream is still soft, place the containers in the freezer to harden.
