  1. Place all ice cream base into a freezer-safe container and place in the freezer and allow to freeze for 1 hour.
  2. Whisk slightly every 20 minutes to avoid it getting too icy for 3-4 hours. It should be getting thicker after each whisking, until it's firm enough to scoop.
  3. To eat: serve immediately or when you are ready for it (after it's been in the freezer), thaw for 5-10 minutes and scoop with an ice cream scoop.
  4. You can optionally add hot fudge and sprinkles on top.
