Welcome the winter with a scoop or two of this delightful Peppermint Chip Ice Cream!

Yep, I did say ice cream. You know, just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean you can’t eat frozen dessert! As a matter of fact, I could eat this beautiful cool stuff any day, any time.

Oh, and did I say winter? Yes! I really can’t believe that today is the first day of winter. Where did this month go? It’s almost Christmas, and I’m not ready! Thankfully, I took a few days off before the holiday so I can get everything done that I have been putting off — wrapping, baking, cleaning and the like when it’s this time of year!

So, if you’re like me, short on time and in need of a simple, elegant dessert — this no-churn Peppermint Chip Ice Cream is a winner in my book!

Needless to say, I am a huge peppermint fan, and peppermint ice cream has been one of my all-time favorite desserts ever since I was a kid. We used to go to this amazing ice cream shop by our home. It was small, family owned and the ice cream was incredible. Mint chip was usually my pick, however for the most part it was green (except for Christmas when they featured pink peppermint ice cream with crushed peppermint candy). And, I would get my ice cream dipped in this delicious chocolate sauce that hardened instantly, kind of like my Homemade Milk Chocolate Magic Shell.

For me, because I have such fond memories of ice cream, there’s no better time to enjoy this Peppermint Chip Ice Cream than Christmastime! I love the combination of peppermint and chocolate — they really taste so good together — and the flavor reminds me of family and wonderful memories of sharing and eating! And, the pink color, well, if you know me, I would rather do pink than red or green anytime!

This time of year we come together with our families and share what we love.Β  So, whether you are having a big crowd or a small gathering this holiday season, this Peppermint Chip Ice Cream is the perfect dessert to share with your friends or family after your celebratory meal.

The recipe can easily be doubled or tripled, and even better, there is no need for a fancy ice cream maker!

So give yourself a break from all that baking, cooking and preparation for your big feast, and whip up this cool and satisfying dessert that’s easy to make last-minute or in advance.

The refreshing peppermint, along with a few drops of red food coloring to give it the glorious pink color, dotted with rich semi-sweet mini chocolate chips will make you tingle and instantly happy!

Delightful, cool and oh so yummy! You won’t be able to resist the incredible flavor combination! But please don’t forget to share it with your loved ones! Gather around the roaring fire or beautifully lit Christmas tree with a big bowl of this frozen delight and you won’t even remember the freezing temperature outside!

By: Sheila | Sweet Baked Life

Ingredients:

1 (14.5 oz) can sweetened condensed milk (chilled)
2 cups heavy whipping cream
2-4 drops red food coloring (to make the perfect shade of pink)
1/2 teaspoon pure peppermint extract
1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

Instructions:

In a large bowl, add the chilled sweetened condensed milk and peppermint extract. Mix until well incorporated. Add the red food coloring, one drop at a time, stirring in between, until you get the perfect shade of pink, then set aside. Then in a large bowl of a stand mixer with the whisk attachment, add the heavy whipping cream and beat on high-speed until stiff peaks form.

Add the whipped cream to the sweetened condensed milk and gently fold in until fully incorporated. Add the chocolate chips and stir gently. Pour mixture into a loaf pan, cover with plastic wrap and freeze until firm (about 6 hours or overnight). When ready to serve, remove from freezer and let sit for 2-3 minutes then scoop into bowls and enjoy!
