how to: peppermint mocha ice cream

Ever since I discovered Kevin and Amanda's method for making homemade ice cream without a machine, I've been hooked.  I've made Twix Fudge Swirl, Apple Pie, Coffee, and some knock-your-socks-off Peach Cobbler Ice Cream.  Since I just made my croissant "how-to" (and am currently obsessed with making gifs), I decided I'd do a photo tutorial on how to make homemade ice cream, because everyone should know how incredibly easy and delicious homemade ice cream is!
This time, I made peppermint mocha ice cream.

Whip the heavy cream to stiff peaks…

Pour condensed milk into a separate bowl,

Add in some melted butter,

Some crushed candy canes,


And some chopped dark chocolate too.


 Finish with 1 tablespoon instant coffee, 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract, and 1 teaspoon vanilla.


Fold it all together...


Pop it in the freezer for a few hours...

Take it out and enjoy the creamiest, most delicious ice cream ever.  Doesn't that look good? The possibilities are endless!


With love,
Erica
