How was your Halloween? We had a nice one…chilly but nice. We have had such nice fall weather lately but Halloween was so cold and chilly. Kind of a bummer but we just bundled up and went out trick or treating anyways! We do get into Halloween pretty big in our house…maybe I should say my husband does. He loves to decorate the front yard for Halloween. Our kids get into a lot too. It‘s a lot of fun.
We have lots of extra candy this year…I never know how much to buy because I never know how many kids will be coming trick or treating. Guess I overbought this year…plus with the weather we had a less kids to give candy out to. So what to do with all that candy?…
How about making some No Churn Candy Crush Ice Cream? I made some for my family and it turned out delicious. I think it is our favorite No Churn Ice Cream we have made so far.
Have you ever made homemade ice cream? I tried it for the first time this past summer and I am hooked. It really is so easy to make!
Just two ingredients are needed along with the candy you want to add in. Two ingredients…heavy whipping cream and sweetened condensed milk! To make the ice cream you combine the heavy whipping cream and sweetened condensed milk.
For the candy, pick out some of that extra Halloween candy you have in your house…your favorite candy of course. …and crush up the candy into small pieces. For our ice cream we used M&M’s, Butterfingers and Crunch candy bars. Use whatever candy you love the most and add it into the ice cream mixture until well combined. Place a piece of parchment paper into the loaf pan and pour the combined ingredients into the prepared loaf pan. Freeze for six hours or overnight. The hardest part will be waiting until it is frozen and you can eat it!
We love to have our ice cream in these delicious Keebler waffle bowls. They are so darn cute! Another fun and favorite recipe we make to use up some of our candy is Halloween Pretzel Rods. I love sweet and salty snacks. How about you?
It is hard to believe the holiday season is just around the corner, isn’t it? Time sure does fly by. What is your favorite holiday recipe to make? I have to say mine is my Apple Pie recipe. I make it with the crumb topping….yumm! If you are looking for a holiday dessert that is delicious and also easy to make, check that one out! And a scoop of this ice cream would be a great topping for that apple pie! Just a thought…
