H- Holly and Ivy Ice Cream

I realized about halfway through my A to Z thinking and planning that I was going to have to get creative with names of ice creams. Creativity with flavors was easy, but that would care for only about 3-4 letters of the alphabet. This was one of the earliest fun with ice cream names pieces I came up with. Holly and Ivy Ice Cream- representative of the colors of Christmas, but with flavors that one might not expect in such a combination. It's basically green-colored vanilla ice cream with cinnamon red hots and chocolate chip cookie dough. It's other name was going to be Christmas Cookie Ice Cream, but I already had a post for C. Enjoy!

Holly and Ivy Ice Cream

3/4 cup sugar
1 cup whole milk
2 cups heavy cream
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon green food coloring (very easy to find large bottles of this aroung St. Patrick's Day)
1 2oz. container cinnamon red hots
1 cup cookie dough cut into small pieces.

What's Next:
Place sugar in large bowl. Add milk.
Stir with a wire whisk or electric hand mixer until sugar is dissolved
Add heavy cream, vanilla and green food coloring. Mix until well combined.
Place mixture in freezer bowl of ice cream maker and process for 25 minutes.
Add red hots and process for 3 minutes. Add cookie dough and process for another 5 minutes.
Place in container and freeze until solid.
