Yes it IS possible to make a very similar result to the REAL Dippin' Dots with this - but the instructions that come with the product do not include an ice cream recipe!

Using fruit juice as recommended in the instructions tastes okay, but my son and I decided to make REAL ice cream, and it turned out wonderful! We just had Dippin' Dots at the mall two days ago, and we tried our cream Dots tonight, and they are amazingly similar. Dots made using this toy and importantly - an ice cream recipe - come out a larger diameter but very similar in taste to the real thing.

*****************

Use a basic vanilla ice cream recipe, but just 8 ounces of it. This fills about 4 of the 6 dot trays. For those of you who don't have a recipe handy:

3/4 cup to 7 ounces half-n-half or cream
4 Tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

Mix well and pour into a Dippin' Dots dispenser bottle (step 2 in the instruction sheet). Follow the remaining instructions as usual. Allow 4 or more hours for freezing so you and your little one aren't getting impatient at the 2-hour mark.

*****************

If you want to make chocolate flavored Dippin' Dots, substitute chocolate syrup (such as Hersheys or Nestle) for the sugar and vanilla.

Also, when releasing the frozen dots from the trays, I don't recommend running under warm water quite as long as the manual suggests, or the dots will begin to melt.

*****************

All that is needed to make this a PERFECT product is a revamp of the instruction sheet. With that, I think they'd get tons of sales from great word-of-mouth excitement of happy customers! (hint hint to the maker- Big Time Toys)

Like the other reviewers that I've seen on here, I expected this to be an ice cream maker. My daughter (6 yr old) got this for Christmas, and when I opened it up and realized that it wasn't going to make ice cream, I was initially disappointed and irritated. However, my daughter (who really doesn't know what dippin' dots are, and had no expectations) absolutely loves it. Basically, what you're getting is a very over-engineered ice cube tray. You put juice (or whatever) into the bright colored snow-globe-looking things on the top, and load one of the trays below it. You push the lever on the liquid-holder things to dispense the liquid / fill the trays. When the tray is filled (some liquid in each of the dots), you throw it in the freezer. After it's frozen, you pop them out like ice cubes. No electricity. No ice cream maker whirring for hours. Just little ice cube dots. My daughter really loves filling the trays, picking out what liquid we're going to use and trying to pop them out of the trays by herself. Then, she puts the dippin' dots into her water and/or juice and uses them like ice. Like I said, she really didn't have an expectation to get ice cream that she could eat with a spoon, so she thinks they're pretty neat. Also, we have an infant, so when we make his food too hot, we can throw a few dippin' dots in there to cool it down. Although it wasn't what I expected, I'm sold. It wasn't for me anyway, so if she's happy, I'm happy.

Okay, I wasn't expecting it to taste like the real ice cream of the future, but it's not even close! It tastes like frozen sugar water. For forty dollars, they could have done better! My child has had other frozen treat makers such as the Icee maker and the McFlurry maker. Again, not the same thing but the product was tasty and they had fun making them. There seems to be no point to the steps you go through to produce the final product here. A real big disappointment for my kid. Don't waste your money.

This is just a messy way to mix up some liquid and pour it into trays and freeze. You don't get pretty little ice cream dots either. They all clump together. A waste of money.

I was expecting something that makes dippin dots like the dippin dots you buy in the stores. However, it just makes tiny round ice cubes basically from whatever drink you choose. Also, the frozen dots all stick together in chunks. I do not recommend this. I am returning it.

This toy does not make dippin dots, it makes tiny round flavored ice cubes. Large white base is very difficult to store. I am returning it.

This toy is so not worth the money. I didn't expect it to make ice cream. It makes pretty much what I thought it would but all it is is a glorified ice cube maker. You'd be much better off filling an ice cube tray with Kook Aid or fruit juice. It's a heckuva lot cheaper and less mess. Straight out of the box assembled the Dippin Dots toy is wobbly and flimsy. It also leaks like crazy so get ready. You have to be careful when you pull the 'lever' to release the liquid into the trays not to pull the whole contraption over into the floor. It's that rinky-dink!! Forget this toy!! Do not waste your money!!! Save yourself the time, aggravation, mess and cash. Seriously, your kids will have more fun with juice in an old fashioned ice cube tray. (Cover with Saran Wrap and stick toothpicks in to make mini popsicles.)

Ok, so maybe Dippin' Dots shouldn't have put their name on this because too many people expect to actually make something very similar to the real product you can buy in stores. You cannot. Dippin Dots are frozen at a temperature we can't possibly achieve in our home and this is a simple toy, you cannot expect the same flavor and ingredient results either! With that said, here is my review:

The 3 bulb shaped containers could have been higher quality. Two of ours leak at the seam, but I will be calling the company for replacements. And even if I only ever get one to work, that will be enough because one packet of the Dippin' Dots powder makes enough to fill all six disks. Having 3 going at the same time would be a waste unless you are choosing another container to freeze the product.

A TIP FOR MIXING THE POWDER: the instructions say to pour the powder and water into one of the bulbs, put the cap on and shake it rigorously. Thinking that could be a disaster, I chose to mix it in an empty water bottle before pouring it in. Glad I did that since my bulbs do leak and they are not very water tight even with the cap on.

The disks are of good quality and seal well. The dots remove rather easily from the disks as well, it's a lot easier to remove them over a large bowl rather than try to get them into the tiny cups they include in the box. Also, I suggest not stacking them for freezing. Even after the 3 hour mark, I spilled the solution all over my freezer. So, I made two piles and staggered them. They froze quickly afterward. I have chosen not to use the pens as I just see that as a disastrous mess, so I cannot comment on their function. My boys are 6 and 4 and it's probably better for an older child with better coordination.
