I have loved Peppermint Stick ice cream since I was a little girl. I wanted to make something special. I came up with an idea to add oreo cookies as a center filling for the ice cream. The ice cream and oreo's are delicious together. I added some peppermint kisses,and candy cane,all incased in a brownie shell. I topped it off with a chocolate Ganache. This will be a hit at your holiday dessert table. The mint and chocolate together is the bomb. Boom!!! Enjoy all, and Happy Holidays to you, and yours!
