1, 2, 3...What Am I? Recipe
By Shannon O'Donnell
I first saw this recipe taped up on my Mother-In-Law's refrigerator many years ago...I think she'd printed it out in hopes of trying it out with future grandchildren one day. A decade (and then some) later, and that time has come...my kids (6 and 4) are the perfect age for enjoying this food 'experiment', and we gave it a whirl during a trip to her house in Spokane last week. They had just as much fun MAKING it as they did EATING it, and it's a wonderful cure for boredom on a hot summer day.
1, 2, 3....What Am I? Recipe
Carefully fill a small (sandwich size) ziplock bag with the following ingredients:
1 cup 2% or whole milk
1 T vanilla flavoring
2 T sugar
2 T evaporated milk
WHOA! SEAL BAG T-I-G-H-T-L-Y !
Into a large (gallon size) ziplock bag, add the following:
3 BIG handfuls of rock salt
2-3 cups crushed ice
The small, sealed ziplock bag you just filled
Shake the bag. What's happening??
Shake the bag some more. What's happening now???
When the ingredients in the small bag are thick and creamy,
GUESS WHAT YOU'VE MADE...
Use a spoon to eat your treat from the bag!
