Pierre’s Premium Peppermint Stick Ice Cream is one of our favorite holiday traditions! A creamy and refreshing ice cream loaded with candy cane pieces, Peppermint Stick is one of our most popular seasonal flavors.
Delicious on its own, Peppermint stick is also a versatile ingredient in many desserts. Pick up a carton (or two, or three) and check out these ideas:
Make a Pierre’s Yule Log ice cream cake
- 1 1.5 Quart container of Pierre’s Peppermint Stick Ice Cream
- Chocolate cream cookies
Remove ice cream from freezer and let it soften at room temperature for about 5-10 minutes. Do not thaw ice cream for too long or else it will crystallize when refrozen.
While ice cream is tempering, line a small loaf pan with plastic wrap. Crumble chocolate cream cookies and line the bottom of the pan with about a 1/4” thick coating. Scoop out ice cream into loaf pan and smooth it out. Cover with foil and return to freezer to harden. Keep covered until ready to serve. When ready, remove from freezer and allow yule log to temper for just a minute or two. Invert pan onto a large plate or tray. Gently remove yule log and discard plastic wrap. Slice into individual servings and enjoy!
For fun, try adding an extra layer of cookie crumble to the middle by stopping halfway when filling the pan, adding crumble, and filling the rest of the pan with ice cream.
Take your basic brownie sundae to a yummy new level
Brownies and Peppermint Stick Ice Cream are the perfect match.
- Your favorite brownies
- Pierre’s Premium Peppermint Stick Ice Cream
- Chocolate Sauce
Place large scoops of ice cream onto brownie squares to completely cover them. Top with chocolate sauce. For a fancier look, allow ice cream to soften and shape/trim to size of brownie. Pour chocolate sauce over top to coat and place in freezer for 15 minutes.
Blend with liqueur for a tasty winter cocktail
This simple recipe makes four delicious, minty refreshers:
- 4 shots white chocolate liqueur
- 4 ice cubes
- 4 scoops Pierre’s Premium Peppermint Stick Ice Cream
Blend all ingredients until smooth. Serve in rocks glasses. Optional: Garnish with crushed candy cane pieces or a drizzle of chocolate syrup.
Make ice cream sandwiches with chocolate cookies
Ice cream sandwiches offer a perfect portion of ice cream nestled between two store-bought or fresh-baked cookies – any flavor of cookie will work, but we’re partial to chocolate chocolate chunk (that’s right – double the chocolate!). On a cookie sheet or platter, lay out rows of cookies, top sides down. Place scoops of Peppermint Stick Ice Cream onto each cookie and top with the bottom side of a second cookie. Place in the freezer until it’s time for dessert – a perfect make-ahead treat!
Add a scoop to hot chocolate for a fresh twist on a winter staple
Who needs marshmallows when you can add a dollop of Peppermint Stick Ice Cream to a cup of your favorite cocoa? Simply place a scoop of ice cream in a mug, follow the package or recipe directions for the cocoa and pour the hot chocolate over the ice cream scoop. Your taste buds will thank you!
