Recipe Notes

This recipe makes enough for my 2-quart Cuisinart ice cream maker. It can easily be doubled if you have a 4 or 6-quart ice cream freezer. You can try adding the sprinkles during the freezing process, I just didn't want to take the chance of the color bleeding into the ice cream, so I just sprinkled some on top before serving.
