In case I haven't raved enough about peppermint ice cream, let me just say that it's my favorite. I think it's completely unfair that you can only buy it in the stores during the holiday season! After all, mint is a popular favorite no matter what time of year it is. It's refreshing and sweet. When you pair it with chocolate to make chocolate peppermint ice cream, it's also rich and decadent.
If chocolate isn't your think, there are tons of different ways to add peppermint to ice cream. It's a minty, crunchy way to get things together. You can add it to the edges of ice cream sandwiches or layer it in an ice cream bombe or pie. Stock up on candy canes to make extra once it is off the shelves.
