We made Blizzards!

Jon got a Blizzard maker for Christmas. Yes, a Dairy Queen Blizzard maker. We finally got around to buying half and half and rock salt so tonight was the night to finally try it out!

We assembled all of the parts and added all the ingredients and got to stirring.
It took over 10 minutes to get to the right consistency, so we took shifts :)
Look how tiny the cups are!
Finally, it's ready to eat! We crushed up some Oreos to put in.
It tasted super sweet, different from your typical Dairy Queen ice cream. Fun, but I think next time we'll just make the drive to our local DQ!
Where's my ice cream?


  1. Look how TINY you are!!! If I were tiny like you I would eat a TON of those blizzards! :)

  2. I was going to say that seems like a lot of work and would be easier just to go to DQ...but you just never know. :)

  3. How fun!! I had no idea those machines even existed. Now I am hungry for a Blizzard and it's only 7am...

  4. I had no idea there was a Blizzard machine! My hubby would love save both our waistlines, I'm going to pretend I didn't see this :p
