One of the reasons I favor vanilla ice cream is that you can do so many things to dress it up! For example ~
This is absolutely a no-brainer, but really good especially at this time of year.
I made my favorite homemade vanilla ice cream, but you can just buy your favorite brand. Crush hard peppermint candies (I use the individually wrapped red and white ones); sprinkle over the top of a scoop or two of ice cream then finish with some grated chocolate if you like.
Such a simple little dessert but very refreshing and very welcome after a filling meal.
