“Imagine being in the wilderness, camping with your family, and the nearest town is an hour away. It is hot and the kids are restless and all you hear is "I'm bored... there's nothing to do". Well, your coolers are stocked with food, beverages, and of course, ice... Why not exclaim "Who wants some Ice Cream"?! Well, it can be done without leaving your campsite with just a few simple things on hand. (I have an alternative option for Camping Made Easy: Tin Can Ice Cream that works just as well). Chocolate syrup or a different flavored extract (such as mint) can be added to change this up. Your choice. This is great to use at a children's birthday party, also. The kids can make there own ice cream to go with the birthday cake. I hope you and your family find this fun and enjoyable. *Note: Cook time is shaking/freezing time.”
