Really more of a concept than a recipe, this never fails to please in my house. This mint-infused ice cream makes a refreshing accompaniment to a dense chocolate cake, and it's also fantastic sandwiched between two homemade chocolate chip cookies. If you're a purist who thinks that chocolate and mint should never co-mingle, you can rest assured this ice cream is great all by itself.
Peppermint Stick Ice Cream
Serves 6 to 8
- 1 quart homemade or good store-bought vanilla ice cream (for an excellent recipe, go here)
- 1/2 cup crushed candy canes or starlight mints (I like to smash them up in a heavy-duty plastic bag using a rolling pin, but you can also use a food processor)
- Pure peppermint extract
