Peppermint Chocolate Ice-Cream Cups

Peppermint Chocolate Ice-Cream Cups ~ These Peppermint Chocolate Ice-Cream Cups are extremely easy to make and perfect for St Patrick's Day

These Peppermint Chocolate Ice-Cream Cups are perfect to serve on St Patrick's day or any other day if you are a fan of either Peppermint treats or Ice-Cream

As you can see, I have just removed mine from the freezer to take a few pics {see the icy bits on the Chocolate Cups ?} I had to work fast as the Ice-Cream I used, my favorite brand, goes soft very quickly, not melting soft, just soft.

It only takes two ingredients to make the Ice-Cream, therefore if making the Chocolate Cups seem like to much work {which it really is not!}, scoop the Ice-Cream into a bowl or a cone and top with the Mint Crunch and some gold nugget sprinkles to get the mood going for St Patrick's Day.

Use any kind of Mint if Mint Crunch is unavailable for the topping. I love the chewiness of this specific brand of Mint Crunch which I can only get at our local baking supply store.

The Ice-Cream scoops out of the Chocolate Cups easily after a minute or two, if you are using a good quality Ice-Cream, which I highly recommend.

And out and up it goes into ... my mouth! Had to get the first bite after all the photo taking ! These Peppermint Chocolate Ice-Cream Cups are really easy to make and it only takes 3 ingredients, excluding the decorations.

Peppermint Chocolate Ice-Cream Cups

8 Cupcake Size Cups

INGREDIENTS:

300g Dark or Plain Chocolate, good eating quality, melted
2 1/2 cups Vanilla Ice-Cream, slightly softened
1 cup Peppermint Crisp Chocolate, crushed/grated

Mint crunch, to sprinkle {optional}
Gold Nugget Sprinkles {optional}

DIRECTIONS:

1.) Use 8 cupcake liners or silicone cupcake cups and make the Chocolate Cups as follows : Paint a layer of Chocolate on the inside of each liner/cup {it does not have to be perfect - this is only your starting base} - place on a baking sheet and into the freezer compartment for a minute or two - remove and repeat the painting of the inside - into the freezer again for another minute or so - if it looks strong enough, the Cups are ready to use, otherwise give it a third brush.
2.) Mix the Vanilla Ice-Cream and the crushed/grated Peppermint Crisp thoroughly - scoop into the Chocolate Cups - freeze until solid {about one hour}.
3.) Remove the cupcake liners/silicone cups gently - sprinkle with the Mint Crunch and Sprinkles {if using} and serve immediately.

These Peppermint Chocolate Ice-Cream Cups can be made up to two weeks in advance - keep in a sealed container in the freezer compartment until ready to serve.

  1. How did you do the cups? I mead you make layers with a brush or just spill some chocolate and shake it?
