Thanksgiving or Christmas is gingerbread time! And this ice cream says it all. I've found that dark brown sugar works better than light. —Jacqueline, McComas, Paoli, Pennsylvania

  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 jar (7 ounces) marshmallow creme
  • 3 tablespoons molasses
  • 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves


  1. Place heavy cream and marshmallow creme in a food processor; process 10 seconds. Add remaining ingredients; process until thickened, about 30 seconds.
  2. Transfer to freezer containers, allowing headspace for expansion. Freeze until firm, 8 hours or overnight.

Test Kitchen tips
  • Use this no-churn base of heavy cream and marshmallow cream with different flavor combinations to make it your own.
  • Light brown sugar will work, too, but dark brown sugar adds a more robust flavor and darker color.
