This ice cream is a favorite for the Studlies
The recipe came from Grandma Reva (Studly's father's mother)! Legend has it she made it pretty sweet! It was passed down to Studly's mom - who modified it to make it less sweet! Then, it was passed down to me - and if ya all know what a sugar-aholic I am - you can guess what I did with it!
Here's What You'll Need:
2 Small Boxes of Cook & Serve Vanilla Pudding
6 Milky Way Candy Bars (Plus 2 Candy Bars [optional] for Garnish)
1 Cup Sugar
2 Cups Half & Half
2 Cups Heavy Cream
4 Cups Whole Milk
Pour pudding mix, sugar, half and half, and heavy cream into a large pan. Cut your 6 Milky Way bars into small pieces, and add them to the pan.
Cook on medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until the Milky Way pieces are melted. Remove from heat.
If you have the freezer that you use ice and rock salt with, you can freeze it immediately. I got a new freezer that doesn't require any ice or salt
I should note the home-made ice cream isn't like the ice cream you buy in the store - it's soft serve - more like a "Frosty" from Wendy's type consistency when it comes out of the "ice cream" freezer!
After you've frozen it, and put it in the refrigerator freezer - it will become more dense. Now, if you're like me - and you want it to be more like the soft serve when it came out of the ice cream freezer - nuke your bowl in the microwave for about 7 to 10 seconds and stir!
Studly Jr. likes his with some chopped Milky Ways on top.
