dont this look so yummy. i made the ice cream a couple days ago. 1st time ever making home made ice cream. i used the recipe from the book that came with the ice cream maker. the magic shell topping, which is sooooo good, is from this website http://www.alphamom.com/ the toppings is from the cookies and cream sprinkles. they are a little crunchy, which i loved on this. plan on making more ice cream and taking some down to the family. my next goal with the ice cream maker is to make an ice cream cake. good luck to me on that.
