Put the heavy whipping cream into a freezer-safe bowl with a lid on it. Keep it in the freezer for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, we will have semi-frozen ice cream. This will make it easier to add the Halloween candy.

And now it’s time to add lots of Halloween candy. You don’t have to add Halloween candy if you don’t want to because this ice cream recipe tastes yummy without it, but it’s just an extra treat with the candy added.

We are going to add some KitKat’s, M&M’s plain and peanut, butterfingers, York, Twix, and Snickers, but you can use whatever Halloween candy you have that you think sounds good in ice cream.
