Sweet Shoppe Brownie Tryit

Sweet Shoppe Brownie Try-it patch Do four activities to complete this Brownie Try-It.

1. Make ice cream in a bag by combining ½ cup of milk (half and half), 1 tablespoon of sugar, and ¼ teaspoon of vanilla extract to a sealed plastic pint-sized freezer bag. Mix around in bag. Then add sealed bag to a larger gallon size freezer bay filled half way with ice and about ¼ cup rock salt. Seal the larger bag and then shake the two bags together for about 4 minutes. Enjoy your ice cream! Search the World Wide Web for other ways to make homemade ice cream.
2. Make chocolate fondue in a crock-pot by melting chocolate chips. Then dip several of your favorite fruits, bread, or pretzels into the chocolate making it a favorite chocolate treat. Caramel may be used as a substitute for chocolate chips.
3. Make a simple yeast dough recipe. Place dough into a bag to knead. Form the kneaded dough into different animal shapes (like a turtle, bear, etc.) Bake and top it off with a sweet topping.
