You’re probably wondering what those UFO-looking things are for. Well they’re called Mega Balls. Mega balls are a new, revolutionary way to make ice cream for those of us who can’t afford, or don’t have the space for, big, giant ice cream machines. Last night my father and I made Hot Chocolate Ice Cream from scratch and it was the best ice cream I ever had!! You can find the Mega Ball at almost any retailer such as Wal-Mart, Target and Amazon for less than $40.00. It is totally worth it, I swear by this product and it’s a lot of fun and easy to make with kids!
The Mega ball comes with a booklet of different ice cream flavors you can make including S’mores, Coconut Almond and Cherry Chip! But here are the ingredients and directions for making the Hot Chocoloate Ice Cream I had last night. This will make about a Quart of ice cream for you and your family to enjoy!
1 Quart Heavy Whipping Cream
1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
3/4 Cup & 2 Tablespoons Sugar
2 Hot Cocoa Mix Packets (marshmallow optional)
Rremove the lid from the ice end of the Mega Ball and fill with as much ice as you can and 1 cup of rock salt. The salt makes the ice even colder. Then, add the above ingredients in a container and shake well. Once the ingredients are well mixed, pour them into the metal cylander of the Mega Ball (on the opposite end of the mega ball from where you added the ice). Once all the ingredients are in, shake the ball for 20 minutes to a half hour non-stop until you think the mixture is turing into creamy, delicious ice cream!
I promise you won’t be dissapointed and if you like ice cream like I do, you won’t be able to resist!! It’s so easy to make, you must be careful not to eat it every day since it’s a million calories!
