Instant Ice Cream Recipe in Richard Scarry’s Super Stupendous Stories

Lowly loves ice cream, do you?  We came across this story title recently in Richard Scarry’s Super Stupendous Stories and our lovely wife realized it was a call to action:

Chocolate Ice Cream Recipe Part I

With the help of our 7 year old, they went straight to work gathering the ingredients listed in the image above.

They then followed the Instructions above, performing step 6 to the tune of Taylor Swifts’ new hit, “Shake It Off” on repeat until the 10 minutes were up.

Instant Ice Cream!

After a mere 10 minutes chilling in the refrigerator, it was time to open the bag to see what happened!

Enjoy!

Not bad for 25 minutes work.  Our 7 year old had worked off the calories and sugar energy during the shaking phase so that even the normal ice cream side effects were mitigated.

Thank you Mr. Scarry for teaching children, and adults, that making Ice Cream can be easy and fun!
