Fresh takes on your favourite holiday ice cream

From the perfect scoop to a festive ice cream pie, here's how to make the most of this holiday delight.

Pre-scoop it

Here’s a fresh take on how to serve candy cane ice cream this holiday: Pre-scoop it. Not only does it save on time, struggle, and mess, but it looks cool, too! Scoop softened ice cream and line the scoops up on a chilled parchment paper-lined baking sheet, pressing them into place. Return the pan to the freezer until ready to use. Whether you’re serving up sundaes or enjoying this ice cream all on its own as a holiday treat, it’s quick and easy to do—and you’ll thank yourself for the prep work!

Make ice cream pie

Any way you slice it, this festive Candy Cane Ice Cream Frozen Pie hits the spot this holiday season. While the ice cream is softening, prepare the crust, following the Compliments Chocolate Crumb Pie Crust package instructions; let cool, then spread the ice cream evenly over the crust. Freeze until firm, 2 to 3 hours. Meanwhile, whip ½ cup whipping cream with icing sugar; pipe it around the edge, sprinkling with crushed candy cane. Freeze before serving.

Prep a parfait

Crunchy and creamy. Chocolatey and minty. Warm and cool. The best contrasts come together in this easy-peasy 3-Ingredient Ice Cream Parfait. Bake the Compliments Deluxe Brownie Mix according to package instructions. Let cool, then layer the brownies in a tall glass with scoops of Compliments Candy Cane Ice Cream and whole or chopped Compliments Peppermint & Dark Chocolate Covered Almonds. Serve and savour!
