Ben and Jerry’s Sweet Cream Base

I got this recipe for Ben and Jerry’s Sweet Cream Base years ago from ichef.com. It is so yummy and creamy. Sorry, I don’t have a picture. The one thing that is so great about this recipe is that it is a base, you can add what ever you want to it. We love to add crushed Oreos. Just add whatever you want to mix in a few minutes before ice cream is done. I add approximately 2/3 cup of what ever mix in I do.

Here is what you need to make
