Ice cream in a bag?

Anyone ever try this recipe for making ice cream?

I often have to entertain my nephew, and was wondering whether this would be a good idea.

  1. I have made a sinilary recipe for a summer school class. It does work- but it also melts quickly. Have fun

    1. My little brother did this once and he said it was quite enjoyable. It also works with one small coffee can nestled in a larger one. You basically just roll it around. Have fun.

      1. I did this en masse last year with a group of 20. It's a fun, novel thing to do. Some bags worked better than others, and shaking a bag of ice got a little tedious. I think if you're doing this with one or 2 kids, it would be really fun. LL Bean and REI sell an ice cream ball, which does the same thing - a container inside another container that may be even more successful and more fun, as it's a ball you can roll around.
