I have got to say that Peppermint Candy Ice Cream is one of my most favorite ice creams ever, I can’t wait until Christmas to share this recipe because I crave this all year round. I know that this ice cream only comes out around the holidays, but lucky for us we can make this anytime we want. The kids were no where around when I started making this peppermint candy ice cream yesterday, but this morning they could smell the peppermint in the air as the ice cream was churning and kept asking when it was going to be ready, lucky for them it didn’t take long after it went into the freezer. I hope you enjoy this little heavenly treat as much as we do!!
