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.

A serious waste of time! I'd say money but this was a gift. Really the only good part of it is the little trays, the rest of it can go in the garbage. We set it up and tried to use the machine to make the "dippin dots", which by the way are not "dippin dots" it is sugar water, the machine leaked so we basically just filled the little trays by hand. Then the kids had to WAIT till they frozen to see that they only got little ice balls. Kids still enjoyed eating the ice but this toy is hardly worth $10 and I see that it is listed up to $40... don't waste your money!

A Kid's Review on December 26, 2010
What a waste. My daughter really wanted this for Christmas so was thrilled when she opened it on Christmas day. But when we tried it out, what a disaster. The caps wouldn't screw on so the liquid spilled everywhere; no drink mix was included; the contraption is totally unnecessary and wouldn't dispense; the dots clump together; each serving is like a tablespoon; you get all these unnecessary accessories that take up space and make it cost more but add zero value. After we were done with it, my daughter and I agreed that it was a terrible product. the only way this product could possibly get more than one star is from the initial excitement of receiving it.

I'm usually pretty charitable on my reviews, but this product is just terrible. Don't waste your money.
