Peppermint Ice Cream Truffles Ingredients:

Start by scooping the peppermint ice cream onto a cookie sheet.  You can use a regular ice cream scooper size or mini, depending on what size truffles you’d like to have.

Place the ice cream scoops in the freezer for at least 30 minutes to allow them to flash freeze.

Melt your chocolate until it’s a smooth consistency. Place the frozen ice cream scoops on a cooling tray to allow the excess chocolate to drip off.

The chocolate will cool quickly on the cold ice cream, so sprinkle the crushed candy canes on top of the chocolate right away.

Move them back to the cookie sheet and place back into the freezer for at least 30 minutes.  Pull out when you are ready to serve.

I hope you’ll give these Peppermint Ice Cream Truffles a try this Christmas season.

  1. This is my definition of the perfect dessert. And (i think) I could be satisfied with just one, instead of, oh say, an entire pie. And I know my hubby will love them too.

    Thanks for the inspiration.

    So happy to join you on this fantastic blog tour!

    Hugs, Lynn

  2. I love peppermint ice cream and adding chocolate and sprinkles to it sounds like pure heaven. This not only sounds delicious, it looks very pretty and would make a great dessert to serve for a Christmas dinner.

  3. Wow, Maryann these look absolutely decadent. We love ice cream and this recipe would be a very special treat to serve on Christmas Eve when we entertain my extended family. Thanks for sharing this one.
