DIRECTIONS

  • Heat cream until just beginning to bubble around edges.
  • Immediately remove from heat and add sugar, stirring until completely dissolved.
  • Once cooled to room temp, add the peppermint extract, and a small splash of crème de menthe (be careful not to add to much! If you do, add a little cream or milk into the mixture.).
  • If desired, add enough food colouring to give this a delightfully retro, min-green hue.
  • Refrigerate overnight.
  • You can chill it for just a few hours until very cold, but it the texture is superior if allowed to chill overnight.
  • Add to ice cream maker and freeze; when partially set, pour in the chocolate-mint pieces.
