At Christmas time, it is fun to try a variation of different peppermint treats and this Peppermint Ice Cream is sure to be a hit with the kids as well as adults for any holiday gatherings you will have at your house or just a yummy dessert while watching your favorite Christmas movies. This is a no-churn variety, so it’s fairly simple to make.  You can serve in bowls or jazz it up a bit with ice cream cones dipped in chocolate (or chocolate & sprinkles) for even more of a treat!

Making Peppermint Ice Cream by whipping ingredients

Remove 1/2 cup of the ice cream mixture to a small bowl and stir in a few drops of red food dye – I went light and achieved a pink color, but you can add more, if desired.
Mixing candy canes into peppermint ice cream
Stir the crushed candy canes into the large bowl of ice cream and then fold out into a lined loaf pan or cake pan.
Mixing together the Peppermint Ice Cream
Spoon dollops of the dyed ice cream over the top and then swirl together using a spoon or butter knife.
Peppermint Ice Cream Swirled Together
Cover tightly with plastic wrap (or a lid), and freeze 5 hours or overnight.
You can then keep this in the freezer & serve for dessert one night while watching Christmas movies or at a family holiday gathering for a special treat.
