Holiday Entertaining Tip: Peppermint Treats

Crowd pleasing Peppermint Milkshakes
While these are billed as sweet festive treats for the little ones in your life, I know a few grownups that would love these as well!  Whip up a batch that serves 8 of your favorite elves. :)

Peppermint Milkshakes

8 cups vanilla ice cream
2 cups milk (*use less for thicker shakes)
1 cup crushed hard round peppermint candies (approx 45-50)
1 8.5 oz can refrigerated instant whipped cream (Reddi-whip)
Peppermint sticks

Process 4 cups ice cream, 1 cup milk, and 1/2 cup crushed candies in blender until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides as needed.  Pour into small serving glasses, top with whipped cream, and garnish with peppermint stick.  Repeat with remaining ingredients.

Yield: 9 1/2 cups

Note: Use food processor for quick crushing of peppermint candies.
