It takes five simple ingredients and no ice cream maker to make this classic Cookies and Cream Ice Cream.  It is also adaptable to Mint Cookie Ice Cream!

There is something kind of magic about rich, creamy vanilla ice cream loaded up with big chunks and little crumbs of Oreo cookies. We loved it as kids and we still love it as adults!

While I do love Cookies and Cream, if I’m going to splurge on “top shelf” ice cream I usually grab a pint of Ben and Jerry’s Mint Cookie Ice Cream. It is the cookies and cream flavor I crave with a lovely twist of mint!

This is another No-Churn ice cream recipe. You don’t need an ice cream maker or any special equipment. It takes 10 minutes to mix up a short list of ingredients and then you freeze it in any container you have on hand. Six hours later you have magic!

More and more, popular ice cream brands are using more milk and less real cream. They are whipping a lot of air into their frozen concoctions and generally selecting low quality ingredients that I can’t get excited about.

Making your own ice cream gives you total quality control and the finished product is something to be proud of!

Summer weather is on the way out, but hot chocolate weather is on the way in!!! The Mint Cookie version would be particularly nice floating in hot chocolate. Yum!

We love fun family nights with ice cream floaters in hot chocolate and board games.  This one is a favorite we play with friends of all ages!

If you need a great hot chocolate recipe to go with your ice cream, try this wonderful and decadent Fablehaven Hot Chocolate! Readers have been quick to tell me how much they love it!
