Pretty Pink Peppermint Marshmallow Ice Cream

Pat Morris


One of my friends that I graduated with from High School has a birthday; but this year she isn't able to go out to eat to celebrate her special day, because she has a husband who is not doing well health-wise.

I decided to make her a sweet treat & take to her. I love, love, love developing ice creams -as you may know if you have read my previous posts.

I thought I would develop a Peppermint Marshmallow Ice Cream for her and her husband -and make Brownies for them to enjoy with the ice cream.

Peppermint Marshmallow Ice Cream & Brownies -YUM! YUM! I hope you make & enjoy it too!

6With an electric mixer, whip the Whipping Cream until soft peaks form (about 2 minutes).

NOTE: I put the beaters and bowl in the freezer as I get the rest of the ingredients together. The whipped cream whips better and quicker when the beaters and bowl are cold.
