Homemade Ice Cream Without a Machine!

Sure, it may be 20 below where you live, but every day is a good day for ice cream. Since I only started to enjoy cooking (occasionally) last year, I don’t have any cool kitchen gadgets because I never needed them before. I don’t have an ice cream maker so I’ve been on the lookout for an ice cream recipe that doesn’t need a machine and bingo, I found one!

There are so many flavors you can come up with for this recipe; crumbled brownies, nutella, chopped up cinammon rolls, nuts, layer the ice cream with chocolate syrup, add crushed cookies, etc, etc. I decided to try cookies and cream with a chocolate swirl. It’s so good! Enjoy!

2 cups (1 pint) heavy cream
1 14 oz. sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cups crushed peanut butter oreos
1 bottle magic shell chocolate fudge

Whip heavy cream to stiff peaks in large bowl. Whisk sweetened condensed milk, crushed cookies, and vanilla in large bowl. Fold in whipped cream. Pour 1/4 of the ice cream mixture in a 2-quart container. Layer with 1/4 bottle of the magic shell. Repeat until mixture is layered. Freeze for 10 hours or until firm. Enjoy!
