This treat is decadently rich, but also cool and refreshing. It is vegan, dairy-free, soy-free, gluten-free---great for people with allergies! I recommend making it a day ahead to allow enough chilling time. "Cooking time" is chilling time. Recipe from local cooking show, "Jayni's Kitchen."

  • 5 cups water
  • 6 peppermint tea bags

  1. Boil the water in a large pot. Steep the tea bags for 5 minutes. Remove them.

yummy!! I just made this, it was sooo easy and it came out delicious...it had just the right amount of minty flavor, and def enough of a chocolatey taste! I didnt add the extract, and i was afraid it wouldnt be minty enough, but it definitely was. I used 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of splenda...it came out fine =) I left it twirling in my ice cream maker for about an hour to get the best texture, and that was worth it! yayyy Thanks so much for this! I'll be making this a lot i think, haha
