Holiday bells are ringing, and you’re graced with hosting the family holiday party. Let the planning begin! You’ve started creating a stellar, multi-course menu from hors-d'oeuvres to the entree. But, what about dessert? Dessert is the grand finale of the meal, and you definitely want to end on a high note. What better way than with homemade soft serve ice cream fit for the holidays.
These holiday soft serve ice cream flavors will earn you the title of holiday party connoisseur.
Eggnog Soft Serve Ice Cream
Is it truly the holidays if you don’t enjoy a glass of eggnog? (Or two, we won’t judge.) Surprise your guests with eggnog soft serve ice cream instead. It’s creamy. It’s delicious. And, it tastes exactly like eggnog. If you want a more grown-up version, add spiced rum to the recipe!
Peppermint Soft Serve Ice Cream
This recipe from Inspiration Kitchen is worth trying. It tastes just like a candy cane! We followed their advice and added ground candy canes to top off the peppermint soft serve ice cream. Talk about the perfect touch!
Nutella Soft Serve Ice Cream
Who doesn’t like Nutella? We can eat it with almost anything. So, of course, we were up to the challenge of trying this Nutella soft serve ice cream recipe. This recipe uses a mascarpone base, which is a little different than the recipes we’ve tested before. But trust us, it’s worth trying!
Pecan Pie Soft Serve Ice Cream
This recipe is all the goodness of a pecan pie in less time! Skip the baking and make pecan pie soft serve ice cream instead. Don’t forget to add a few sprinkles of cinnamon and nutmeg to give it a nice kick. We’ve even heard of people adding molasses or dark corn syrup to create a richer flavor.
Of course, you need a trusted at-home soft serve ice cream machine to create the perfect ice cream for your holiday party. We highly recommend the Ice Cream Depot SX1000, of course. Try one or all of these recipes at your next holiday party. Your guests will thank you!
