Peppermint Patty Frappe

You have to love Gabby.  She always keeps me on my toes.  She requested the recipe for the Frappe I featured in my 13/365.

I found this recipe in the December issue of Southern Mid-Atlantic Living.  We made it for dessert the other night.  The recipe makes three servings so I multiplied it by three to  make nine servings for our family.  They were so delicious and we all enjoyed the treat, but we unanimously agreed they were very rich.  In the future I would make one or two batches and serve them in four ounce juice glasses.

In blender combine 1 cup milk, nine miniature peppermint patties and 2 cups vanilla ice cream.  Blend until smooth.

To serve:  dip the rim of a glass in warm hot fudge.  Sprinkle with crushed candy canes.  I would do this step ahead next time and pop the glasses in the freezer before making the Frappe.  Our ice cream got soft waiting for the glasses to be finished.

The article featured two other servings suggestions for those who are feeling creative.  Freeze glasses.  Then pour some chocolate magic shell ice cream topping in glass and rotate to coat.

Alternately top with fresh whipped cream.  (I would sprinkle with some shaved chocolate if I used the whip cream.)  


  1. So glad you posted this. I was going to ask what that drink was. Looks yummy, I was finding ways to use Christmas candy canes this week. This looks like good fit.
