Everyone loves ice cream in the summer because it's refreshing. Peppermint ice cream? Twice as refreshing! For a crunchier version, process the candies into a coarser, rather than finer, crumb.

Prepare the Ice Cream
In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat liquid topping until stiff.
Add in sugar and beat until incorporated.
Add in eggs, one at a time, peppermint extract, and food coloring.
In a food processor fitted with the S blade, grind the candies until they are broken into very small pieces. (This is very noisy.) You can also place the candies in a plastic bag and bang them with a hammer to crush.
Gently fold candy into ice cream and freeze.
