Christmas Wonderful: Ice Cream Social

Hello everyone! I’m Karyn, from Sugar Swagger. In the past I contributed to the Summer Camp series on Design Dazzle and showed off my summer picnic ideas. I’m honored to have been asked back to share some holiday fun to have with you and your kids.
My husband is the baker in the family so when I asked him to make ice cream for our ice cream social, he was excited to involve the kids again. So today I’m going to show you how to make Candy Cane ice cream to host your very own Christmas Ice Cream Social. To top off your ice cream social, you can even make these cute Holiday Ice Cream Sandwich Treats!

Put the peppermint candy into a plastic bag and beat with the end of a rolling pin (This part is fun for this kids) until the candy is broken into small granules.

In a large bowl, stir together the milk, cream, sugar, salt, vanilla extract and peppermint extract until the sugar has dissolved.Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker, and freeze according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

After about 10 minutes into the freezing, add the crushed candy canes. After the ice cream has thickened, about 30 minutes later, spoon into a container, and freeze for 2 hours.

Before your guests arrive place all your toppings on a table with napkins, cup, cones and spoons.

When your ready to serve, have your guests build their own ice cream cone or sundae with toppings of their choice. Have fun and enjoy sharing stories about your time in the kitchen together.
