  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup sugar

  • Combine milk and sugar in a small pot and heat over medium.
  • Heat for a few minutes, stirring occasionally until sugar is mostly dissolved.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine sugar milk, half and half, salt and cake mix. Stir well to combine.
  • Pour mixture into your ice cream maker (make sure you prepared your bowl in the freezer ahead of time). Follow manufactures instructions. I mixed mine for 30 minutes.
  • Add sprinkles and allow to mix for additional 5 minutes.
  • Remove ice cream from ice cream maker and put into a small glass bowl or container. Cover with lid or foil and freeze for additional 2 hours to overnight to get ice cream to harden more.
