    Ingredients for No-Churn Peppermint Cookie Ice Cream

    • Heavy Whipping Cream- Also known as heavy cream. Just use cream that is at least 30% fat. This is important because it’s what makes the ice cream so easy to scoop. The lower the fat content in ice cream the harder it freezes and thus extra hard to scoop.
    • Sweetened Condensed Milk- This is what sweetens the ice cream base and it also helps keep the ice cream smooth and creamy. I haven’t tried replacing it with anything else. I have not used a low-fat version either.
    • Vanilla- I always add this to no-churn ice cream.
    • Peppermint extract- I used 1 1/4 teaspoons of extract in this recipe. It provides a nice prominent peppermint flavor. If you like a strong peppermint flavor use 1 1/2 teaspoons or if you want it a little more subtle take it down to 1 teaspoon.
    • Crushed peppermint candies- adds a little something extra! Use candy canes or the round candies.
    • Chocolate cream cookies- AKA Oreo’s. Totally optional but oh so good!!
