My family is kind of odd. My dad doesn’t like chocolate, but I’ve gotten used to that. But recently I learned something that stopped me dead in my tracks. My grandma doesn’t like ice cream.
To avoid having the outside of the ice cream box soaked with liquid ice cream and the inside frozen solid, I would recommend dividing your ice cream between two bowls and letting it sit for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. This will guarantee the ice cream will soften evenly. Your goal would be soft serve consistency, but don’t worry if it doesn’t work completely.
Mines didn’t because I’m not an incredibly patient person AND my dad was almost home while I was making it as a surprise. It doesn’t have to be perfect. I mean, this is ice cream! Who doesn’t like ice cream?!
