Peppermint Chocolate Ice-Cream Cups

How to make Chocolate cups and a Peppermint Ice-Cream filling are extremely easy to make (semi-homemade and NO ice-cream machine required) and perfect for St Patrick’s Day.

Peppermint Chocolate Ice-Cream Cups

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.

Peppermint Chocolate Ice-Cream Cups

It only takes two ingredients to make the Ice-Cream.

Therefore if making the Chocolate Cups seem like too much work (which it really is not!), scoop the Ice-Cream into a bowl or a cone. 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.

Peppermint Chocolate Ice-Cream Cups

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