Peppermint Stick Ice Cream

3 cups heavy cream
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp peppermint extract
40 hard peppermint candies (Starlights)

In a glass measuring bowl (I used a big 4 cup), whisk the cream and sugar together until the sugar dissolves. Add the vanilla and peppermint and stir.

Put in the fridge for about an hour.

In a large food processor, grind the peppermint candies by pulsing 5 or 6 times. Some of the candies will be more finely ground than others; small chunks of candy will add some texture to the ice cream.

Pour the cream mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer's directions.

When nearly frozen and the consistency of soft serve ice cream, add the ground peppermint candies. Churn just until mixed.

Transfer the ice cream to a snack size Gladware containers.
