This creamy Peppermint Ice Cream is delicious on it’s own, but is ridiculous on top of a warm sugar cookie or half baked brownie! Ridiculously delicious, that is. I hope your family enjoys it as much as we do.

Prep Time 5 mins Total Time 5 mins
Serves 8



In a mixing bowl, whip heavy cream until stiff peaks form.

Blend in sweetened condensed milk.

Fold in crushed peppermint.

Pour into a loaf pan or baking dish and freeze until solid {about 4 hours}.

Recipe Notes

I use crushed peppermint that is found with the sprinkles and comes in a 3.5 oz container. You can crush peppermint and use between 1/3 and 1/2 c crushed to taste.
