Ingredients:

14-ounce can regular coconut milk
14-ounce can light coconut milk
½ cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoons peppermint extract
Soft ginger molasses cookies

4 candy canes or assorted peppermint candies

 

Instructions:

The night before serving, make the ice cream: In a medium bowl, whisk together 2 cans coconut milk, ½ cup honey, 1 teaspoon vanilla, and 2 teaspoons peppermint extract. Freeze the mixture in an ice cream maker (or make it without the machine). Transfer to a sealable container and freeze overnight.

 

Make the ginger cookies. To make mini cookies as pictured above, roll dough into into ¾ to 1-inch balls. Cool cookies completely before assembly.

 

To assemble, crush the candy canes by placing them in a sealable bag and crushing with a rolling pin. On each cookie, spread some peppermint ice cream; top with another cookie. Roll the outside of the ice cream with peppermint candies (or use your fingers to line the ice cream). Freeze in a sealable container. Serve frozen within a few minutes from removing from the freezer.
