Scottish Mint Delight

READY IN: 3hrs 30mins
Recipe by Bobbie

This is a "delight" in more ways than one. First, it's so easy to put together; and 2nd, it's even easier to eat!!!! Very, very refreshing. A perfect frozen ice cream dessert. I've had this recipe for almost 30 years and I can barely read from the paper it was written on. That was a good indication that I need to get it posted somewhere so I can always have access to it! NOTE: In place if the vanilla ice cream, I have been using mint chocolate chip ice cream. I still add some creme de menthe to it. Also, you can easily experiment with different flavors of ice cream.
