My mom has always been a store-bought kind of mom. When it came to Easter, my brother and I would get the store-bought baskets, we’d dip our eggs in the store-bought boxes of dye, and dinner would be prepared with a lot of help from store-bought ingredients. It was all still very exciting, and I loved it every year. Thus, I’m quite OK with doing things very simply, because I know it doesn’t take a lot to make holidays extra special.
I have found some ways to put my own personal touch on our Easter holiday, however. And I especially like to make sure we have some extra special fun goodies like No Churn Easter Tracks Ice Cream to celebrate the holiday. This is easily accomplished with a bag of M&M’S® 62oz. Pastel Peanut Chocolate Candy Bag found at Sam’s Club.
The hunt is on at Sam’s Club! Yes, Mars and Wrigley are ready to help make the season of the Easter hunt easier with simple baking, decorating and basket building solutions with 3 perfect products for spring.
We picked up M&M’S® 62oz. Pastel Peanut Chocolate Candy Bag, but also be sure to look for the seasonal M&M’S® 62oz. Pastel Milk Chocolate Candy Bag and Mars Chocolate Spring Mixed Minis Bag for all your Easter goodness.
The Easter bunny just so happened to visit us a touch early and left some tracks of M&M’S® candies behind in our No Churn Easter Tracks Ice Cream!
Our No Churn Easter Tracks Ice Cream recipe is actually made with a total of 4 ingredients and takes about 15 minutes to put together. Heavy cream, sweetened condensed milk, store-bought caramel sauce, and M&M’S® candies are all you need. My mom would be proud. In fact, I should share some with her.
First, whip a pint of heavy cream until it forms a stiff peak. Then gently fold in 14 oz of sweetened condensed milk.
Chop up about 2 cups of the pastel peanut M&M’S® candies in random sized bits, more or less depending on taste. You could also use the milk chocolate M&M’S® or chop up the candy in the Mars Chocolate Spring Mixed Minis Bag. I like the colors of the pastel M&M’S® candies, though, and the peanuts give it a nice crunch. Add into the heavy cream mixture.
Pour into a freezer safe loaf pan. Drizzle a half cup of caramel sauce on top, then take a knife and swirl the caramel into the cream.
Cover and place into the freezer for at least 8 hours.
Where has the Easter bunny been? Follow the tracks! When ready to serve in a bowl or in a cone, top the No Churn Easter Tracks Ice Cream with a drizzle of more caramel and extra pastel peanut M&M’S® candies, either chopped or whole.
