homemade ice cream

Just because it is cold outside does not mean that it’s not a good time for ice cream!  I have been wanting to make homemade ice cream for my family and when I received an opportunity from #CollectiveBias to try the new MARS Bites candy I thought it would be the perfect chocolate addition to the dessert.  The Bites come in 4 varieties – 3 Musketeers, Milky Way, Milky Way Simply Caramel and SNICKERS and they can be found at your local Walmart.  I purchased the SNICKERS Bites to add to my ice cream and the Milky Way Simply Caramel ones for a quick snack.


The base recipe I started with I found on About.com, what is nice about this recipe it only requires 3 ingredients and you don’t need a special ice cream machine to make it. Here is all you need:

  • 2 cups of heavy whipping cream
  • 1 14 oz can condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • SNICKERS Bites, coarsely chopped


With an electric mixer beat the 2 cups of whipping cream until soft peaks form.

In another bowl mix condensed milk, vanilla, and pieces of SNICKERS Bites.  Fold into the whipping cream.


Put mixture into a plastic container and freeze for at least 4 hours. For best results freeze overnight.


Once the ice cream is set, top it with your favorite toppings and some extra SNICKERS and enjoy!


My family loved the this dessert and can’t wait to make more! If you try this recipe, I’d love to hear what your family thinks!
