December 2019 Holidays on Ice Cream Series
Peppermint Bark Cocoa
Our tribute to Williams Sonoma’s signature treat with a rich cocoa ice cream cooled with a dash of peppermint oil, to which we add handfuls of bark made with minty dark chocolate, creamy white chocolate, and crisp peppermint candy bits.
Apple Brandy & Pecan Pie
Our favorite way to enjoy pecan pie? Between sips of brandy, of course! We capture the cozy of this winter tradition with vanilla custard ice cream spiked with lots and lots of Clear Creek apple brandy, leveled up with gobs of our homemade pecan pie filling, rich with nutty, toffee stickiness. Cheers!
Gingerbread Cookie Dough
Every year, we like to bake up a huge batch of our grandmother’s molasses cookies to share late at night with friends and family. For this flavor, we use some of those cookies to make a cookie butter, which we swirl into our rum royal icing ice cream, then we chop even more cookies and fold them into the mix and make sure there are bits and pieces of gingerbread in every bite.
Cinnamon Chai Spiced Eggnog (v)
Warming is an understatement with this dairy-free, egg-free nog that’s laced with plenty of Diaspora Chai spices. Those spices plus a few glugs of rum get churned up with coconut cream and sugar for luscious, heady ice cream you’ll be dreaming of all season long.
Sugar Plum Fairy
We’ve captured the magic of the Nutcracker in a flavor that nods to the Russian origins of Tchaikovsky’s timeless holiday suite. Sugar plum hard candies weren’t actually made with plums, but that didn’t stop us from swirling sweet plum jam and marzipan into ice cream infused with Assam tea from Smith Teamaker in this ode to olde world winter confections and new world ballet traditions.
