Frozen Desserts That You Can Make At Home
There are a few tricks to working with ice cream. It usually needs to soften a bit before you can spread it in a pie crust or layer it between cookies. Soften the ice cream in the microwave at 30% power for 20 to 30 seconds. Be sure to check the ice cream for 20 seconds, then let sit for 1 to 2 minutes. Ice cream can also be softened by leaving it at room temperature for 15 to 20 minutes.
You can also use a stand mixer to soften the ice cream as well, beat the ice cream on medium for 30 to 40 seconds until the consistency is soft. Once this is complete, freeze it for at least 3 to 4 hours before serving or follow the directions in the recipe. Remove the dessert from the freezer 20 to 30 minutes before serving, so it softens slightly and the flavors can bloom.
You don’t have to be a talented chef to make some ice cream or pop stick at home. Most of the homemade ice creams contain two or three ingredients, so it is just about to mix heavy cream and sweetened condensed milk, freeze it for few hours and voilà! Making pop sticks is even easier, just blend fruits you like, add some cream if you want, fill the popsicle mold with the mixture and freeze it. After one hour maybe less you will have fresh popsicles ready for surprising your loved ones.
