Ice Cream in a Bag

I made this with my kids and they loved it! We used chocolate milk to make chocolate ice cream.

What You'll Need:

1 Tbs sugar
1/2 cup half & half
1/4 tsp vanilla
6 tbs rock salt (I bought "ice cream salt" in the baking aisle)
1 pint-size Ziploc plastic bag
1 gallon-sze Ziploc plastic bag
Ice cubes

How to make it:
Fill the large bag half full of ice, and add the rock salt. Seal the bag.
Put half and half, vanilla, and sugar into small bag and seal it.
Place the small bag in the large one and seal again carefully.
Shake until mixture is ice cream, about 5-8 minutes.
Wipe off top of small bag (you don't want to taste salt.) and then open and enjoy! It makes a 1/2 cup serving of vanilla ice cream.

You can also use chocolate milk to make chocolate ice cream.
