Peppermint Stick Ice Cream
This refreshing ice cream has to be one of my favorites! For a more colorful dessert, use both red and green starlight mints.
3 C. cold heavy/whipping cream
1 C. cold whole milk
1 C. sugar
¾ C. crushed peppermint candy
1 ½ tsp. peppermint extract
In a large bowl, whisk the cream, milk, and sugar until sugar is completely dissolved. Stir in the candy and the extract. Pour into the frozen bowl of an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer instructions until mixture is soft-set, about 20 minutes. Pour mixture into a container (a glass bread pan works well), cover, and freeze 2-3 hours until nearly solid.
Kitchen Hint: You can also add a few drops of pink or green food coloring for extra color.
