Ice Cream Making

Today we decided we wanted to make our own ice cream flavours, we decided on the easy option of adding our ingredients to ready made ice cream and decorating our cones with chocolate and yummies.
We started by shopping for our ingredients, chocolate, wafer cones, soft scoop ice cream and sweeties…


Whilst in Tescos we picked up some pots and lids from the salad bar…

We then placed them in some ice lolly moulds to keep them upright (you could use a glass) and put them in the fridge to harden..

We then set about adding our ingredients to our ice cream, we mixed the ingredients in before the ice cream melted, scooped it into pots and returned to the freezer (we found soft scoop ice cream was the best to use as it didn’t need to thaw to enable us to mix it, it’s important to work quickly to avoid the ice cream melting as re freezing isn’t recommended) ..

We then checked to see if our chocolate covered cones had set..

We popped on a movie and scooped up our ice creams ๐Ÿ™‚
