No Churn Candy Cane Ice Cream
I’ve been wanting to make a candy cane ice cream for the last two Christmases and I just barely did it. It’s a Christmas miracle! I love this ice cream because it’s so smooth and creamy with great peppermint flavor, yet full of chunks of candy cane. It’s pretty much a holiday dream.
I love making ice cream at home because it’s so darn easy. It turns out you really don’t need an ice cream maker to make it. If you have a stand mixer or an electric hand mixer, you’re set! It’s really that easy. Some of my other favorite no churn ice cream recipes are Apple Crisp Ice Cream and Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream. Yum!!
I would love to serve this ice cream on top of a hot brownie fresh out of the oven. Maybe even with hot fudge drizzled on top. That sounds like the perfect holiday dessert!
