Homemade ice cream

To make homemade ice cream, you’ll need sugar, milk, whipping cream, salt, ice, and two Ziplock bags. Mix the milk, whipping cream, and sugar together, then pour the mixture into one Ziplock bag. In the other Ziplock bag, place ice and salt to make it colder. Place the bag with the ice cream mixture inside the bag with the ice, seal it, and shake for 15 minutes. Finally, scoop out the ice cream and serve with chocolate sauce if desired.
