Candy Cane Ice Cream…

21 Dec

One of my favorite recipes of the season is Candy Cane Ice Cream…  It is probably the easiest thing you will make this season…  I will post a picture later today, but in the meantime…

Here is the SCOOP…

1.  Buy or make a half gallon of your favorite vanilla ice cream. I usually make a “cream base” using my ice cream maker, but you can just as easily buy a half gallon of vanilla from the grocery store…  If you use store bought ice cream, let it sit out for a couple of minutes so it’s soft, but not melted…

2.  Buy a package of TRADITIONAL Peppermint Candy Canes…  Unwrap each of the candy canes and put them in a large ziplock bag.  Using the back of a spoon, hammer, etc…  SMOOSH up all of the candy canes (you probably want about a cup of candy canes, but if you like it more peppermint-y then add as much as you like!  This is a great way to release some holiday stress too…

3.  Scoop the ice cream into a large bowl.  Add the smashed candy canes to the ice cream in the bowl.  Using a large spoon, mix the ice cream and the candy canes together…

4.  Re-freeze the ice cream until ready to serve…

5.  I love to serve this with mini chocolate bundt cakes, chocolate waffer cookies, or even just all by itself!  YUMMY…
