I Scream, You Scream...

This week the most interesting package I have ever received showed up on my doorstop for review.  Inside the plain cardboard box was a styrofoam cooler packed with dry ice and two containers of Dreyer's/Edy's Grand Ice Cream limited edition holiday flavors.

With its actual hot cocoa flavor and tons of little marshmallows the container of Hot Cocoa ice cream is quickly disappearing from our house.  I'd like to attempt making their Hot Cocoa Churros recipe, but I had better move fast or I'm going to need to get another container of ice cream first!

We also have been able to sample their Peppermint limited edition holiday flavor.  Pink peppermint ice cream with little pieces of crushed peppermint candy in it?  Not only a tasty treat, but very pretty and festive as well!

After trying a couple spoonfuls, I immediately thought how perfect the Peppermint flavor would be to replace the butter cream frosting I usually use in my Peppermint Wheel Sandwich holiday cookies.  Besides, ice cream cookies are so much more fun (and so much less work than making butter cream frosting)!

Just how delicious does their Peppermint Pie recipe (above) look?  I am seriously thinking about making this pie for one of our many holiday gatherings this year.  Maybe it will even make it to the party before I start sampling... or maybe not.

Dreyer's/Edy's also has a delicious looking Egg Nog limited edition holiday flavor. Perfect for making these adorable little Egg Nog and Cream Snowmen for the kids, or maybe some adult flavored Egg Nog milkshakes for mom and dad?

GET YOUR OWN: Visit icecream.com to find out if you live in a Dreyer's or an Edy's state and make sure to pick up these limited edition holiday flavors from Dreyer's/Edy's Grand at your local grocer.

WIN YOUR OWN!!!  Dreyer's/Edy's Grand Ice Cream would like to give 8 (yes, eight) lucky SIMPLE readers some ice cream of their own!  Each winner will receive a Gift Certificate good for a 1.5 quart carton of either Dreyer's or Edy's Grand Ice Cream.  To enter please visit icecream.com and come back to tell us which Limited Edition Holiday Flavor you would like to try and whether you live in a Dreyer's or an Edy's state.

Winners will be randomly selected and announced on December 18, 2010.  Please remember to leave a contact email address in your comment.  Good luck!!
