Wet-Nap and ice cream in a bag 5.1

One of my favorite things about Summer is our impromptu picnics as a family. I keep a picnic basket stocked with plates, drinking cups, eating utensils, a couple small bags for garbage, and Wet-Nap Antibacterial Hand Wipes. The other basket is ready for all the delicious food we will be enjoying. One of my favorite ways to transport picnic food is in mason jars, plus the food looks so great in jars.

Sometimes I like to add a little something special to our picnic and I’ll make something creative to go along with our dessert or meal. I had all these supplies on hand so I wanted to make our dessert at the park a little more special.

I stamped the wood spoons with dessert related words then put each one in a bag with a Wet-Nap package and tied it off with some bakers twine. It makes things so much easier to have individual packages for each family member. This would also be really cute and easy for a party and they only take a few minutes to make.

Our dessert basket holds everything we need to make Ice Cream in a Bag on our picnic, we also have a cooler with ice and half & half. Ice Cream in a Bag is so fun for kids to make and they love eating what they’ve made. We made vanilla ice cream then had a few add-in options if they wanted to add a little something.

Here’s what you’ll need:
2 tbsp sugar
1 cup half & half
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup coarse salt (I used ice cream salt)
gallon sized ziploc bag
sandwich size ziploc bag

Pour the sugar, half & half, and vanilla extract in the small ziploc bag. Make sure it is sealed tight and mix together by shaking  it for a few seconds.

Fill the gallon size bag half way with ice then pour the salt over the ice. Place the cream filled bag into the ice filled bag and seal tight.

Shake for 5-7 minutes or until the desired consistency. We found that the bag gets very cold on your hands after about a minute. One option is to wear knit gloves or we have also sat in the grass and rolled it around holding the top of the bag. Check the bag after 5 minutes to see if the ice cream is hard, if not, continue shaking. Take the ice cream bag out of the large bag and pour cold water over the outside of the bag to rinse the salt off.

Wash your hands with a Wet-Nap to make sure you don’t have any residual salt on your hands. You’ll be eating your ice cream directly from the bag and you don’t want it to taste salty. I love how easy the Wet-Nap wipes are to use and how they clean up messes quickly. I also love that they are stronger, softer, and aren’t harsh on your skin.

Add any toppings you like. We had mint chips, chocolate chips, nuts, chocolate syrup, caramel, and sprinkles to choose from.

Ammon added sprinkles to his. Who doesn’t love ice cream in the Summer especially at the park? It was delicious. We’ll be making it again before the end of Summer.

Eating ice cream from a bag can be sticky and messy. Wet-Nap wipes can clean everyone quickly and easily. Wet-Nap products are available in the napkin aisle at WalMart. We also found ours in a small center aisle display. You can print off and use the .55 cents off coupon (while supplies last) on any Wet-Nap product to save you even more money off WalMart’s already everyday low prices. Pick some up and keep them in the car for any sticky or gooey messes that might happen.

Believe it or not, we have NEVER made ice cream in a bag! I have got to make an effort to do this before the kids go back to school. Thanks for the visual reminder and I will make sure to bring some Wet-Naps to make clean up a little easier!

That looks awesome! We too love homemade ice cream, but I have never been brave enough to take it along on a picnic.

I love making ice cream and we made it as a child using rock salt but never in a ziplock bag! How creative! LOVE those bags and spoons too!
