No-Churn Peppermint Ice Cream recipe. No ice cream maker required! ( @marlameridith ) #icecream #christmas

 2 cups cold heavy cream
 12 ounce can evaporated milk
 1/2 cup simple syrup
 1 tbsp peppemint extract
 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
 pinch of salt

Make the simple syrup: Place the sugar and water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, whisk until sugar has dissolved about 1 minute. Remove from the heat, transfer to a bowl and let syrup cool just enough so it's still a liquid.


In a bowl combine the simple syrup with the evaporated milk, peppermint & vanilla. If the simple syrup is no longer pourable you can heat it for about 30 seconds in the microwave until its liquid again.


Whip the heavy cream in a stand mixture until you have stiff peaks. Fold in the milk mixture.


Pour the ice cream batter into a 9 inch loaf pan. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for at least 6 hours, until firm. Top with crushed peppermint candy.
