"very easy to make..only thing I do differently is add the candies or nuts after the maker is done putting in freezer it keeps them crisp"

MY REVIEW

"Family loved it and it was simple."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 26, 2009

"I have done this for years, I think that the above commenter may have missed the step of hardening the ice cream mixture in the freezer, as after it is done in the ice cream maker it is a rather thick slushy mixture. My family makes this often, using different candies each time. FYI, Twix bars and pretzels are a yummy mixture too. I find that with the larger batches I need to let it harden up overnight in my freezer."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 18, 2009

"This recipe did not work for me. It never turned into ice cream. It only became an icy slush. I was not happy because I spent so much money on the half-and-half but the family would not let me dump it. They drank it and loved it. Only to make me feel better I think. Not sure if I will try again. Let me know if it worked for you."
