1 cup milk
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 pinch salt
4 Nestle Fun-Size Candy Bars, crushed
1/4 cup nuts, (optional)

1 empty 39 oz. coffee can with tight fitting lid
1 empty 12 oz. coffee can with tight fitting lid
Recipe for Roly-Poly Ice Cream (see recipe below)
1 roll of decorative contact paper 1 sheet each of brown and pink construction paper
1 roll of clear contact paper Duct tape (optional)
Crushed Ice Rock Salt

If you wish to decorate the outside, larger coffee can, cover it with decorative contact paper.
Print out the ice cream cone template.
Trace the cone template onto brown construction paper (cut out two.)
Trace the ice cream template onto pink construction paper (cut out two.)
Glue the ice cream cones onto the can covered with the decorative paper.
Cover this with clear contact paper. This will protect the construction paper cones.

Place the Roly-Poly Ice Cream recipe (see recipe below) into the smaller coffee can and snap on the lid. Secure the lid with duct tape. Set the small can inside the large can and pack with crushed ice.
Sprinkle rock salt over the crushed ice and put on the lid.

Take your Roly-Poly Ice Cream maker to the driveway, sidewalk or other flat area that won't be hurt by a little leaking salt water.
Have two children sit several feet away from each other and let them roll the can back and forth to each other.

After they have rolled the can for 15 minutes, open the lid of the large can and drain any water.
Open the smaller can and stir the thickening ice cream.
Replace the lid and add more crushed ice and rock salt.
Continue to roll the can for 10 more minutes or until the ice cream is thick.

MIX together the milk, cream, sugar, vanilla extract and salt.

STIR until sugar is dissolved.

ADD the crushed NESTLÉ Fun Size Candy Bars and nuts (if desired.)POUR mixture into smaller coffee can.

TIPS Enjoy this yummy treat right after you make it. If there is any left over, store the coffee can in the freezer. Bring out mini ice cream cones and a small scoop or spoon. This will make the ice cream go farther!
