Christmas has come and gone but even after the holiday, the topic of conversation is still Dennis's Candy Cane Egg Nog Ice Cream Sandwich's.  David say's it best when stating: "A few things scream 'The Holidays' like egg nog, candy canes, and sweet indulgence. And this recipe is a delicious holiday dessert explosion of all three."  It's a fun & easy recipe to make and fit our Christmas Eve girls night perfectly, prepping the ice cream (having an egg nog or two ourselves) .... then waking up Christmas morning to bake the cookies and festively adding the crushed candy canes. A very Merry Christmas indeed!

  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
