Homemade Peppermint Ice Cream Sandwiches Recipe

The peppermint flavor instantly reminds me of my childhood holidays. Sometimes I want to make something that isn’t a traditional Christmas cookie and that’s when I put together these Homemade Peppermint Ice Cream Sandwiches. Just like a kid, I lick around the outside and then bit into the center. Our whole family loves them!

If you’re going to any outdoor holiday event, like a tree lighting, then make a batch to bring with you. They’ll stay cold and they’re great with a big cup of hot cocoa. The kids love the combination – plus, they’ll put together their own sandwiches too.
