Seasons Eatings Peppermint Sundae

Continuing my seasons eatings recipes this week I’m sharing a fun way to use candy canes!






What You Need

2 Pints vanilla ice cream (softened)

1/2 Cup candy canes (crushed)

1 Cup heavy cream

1/4 Cup light corn syrup*

12 oz. Semisweet chocolate ( finely chopped)

Large Bowl

Cling wrap or lid for bowl


Lets Make It! Put the ice cream in a large bowl. Reserve 2 tablespoons of candy cane and then sprinkle the rest all over the ice cream. Blend ice cream and candy together using a large spoon, mix ice cream and candy until candy is well incorporated. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and place in the freezer for about 30 minutes.

In a saucepan over medium high heat combine cream and corn syrup and bring to a boil , stir often to blend evenly. Remove from heat and whisk in the chocolate. Stir until chocolate has melted and sauce is smooth.

3. Divide ice cream among 6 dessert dishes. Top with hot fudge sauce. Sprinkle each portion with reserved crushed candy and serve immediately.
