1/2 gallon rich vanilla ice cream..edy's , or turky hill is ok..no need for hagendaz.. soften slightly,
crushed up candy canes, or red and white striped candy mints..6 candy canes or a good handful of mints..grind into powder
Mix ice cream with candy, pour into plastic covered container and refreeze..volume will be about 1/3 less, as the ice cream will be denser.
place scoop of icecream with a round scoop, drizzle chocolate sauce over it, and stick a mini candy cane jutting slightly off center on top...you can also add a chocolate mint patty. note: you can make the scoops a few hours ahead and keep frozen but add the candy cane and the chocolate sauce at the last minute or it gets globby
