As the days are getting darker, the holiday-spirit grows inside of me. The cold weather is really awful, but the warm holiday spirit definitely makes things better. I love holidays. To me, it symbolizes family. Sitting with my family around the christmas tree and seeing faces light up when they open the present I’ve been brewing on since spring. In The Netherlands, December has another holiday called “Sinterklaas“. It’s more or less like Christmas, but this “Santa Claus” comes from Spain and arrives by boat in The Netherlands. When Sinterklaas drops by, you get “kruidnootjes“, which are Dutch ginger/spice cookies. These cookies are the size of small amaretti biscuits and are sรณ addicting. It’s like Pringles: once you pop, you can’t stop. If you ever drop by The Netherlands after summer, you HAVE to try these.

In awaiting of Sinterklaas (December 5th), I decided to make a delicious ice cream revolved around this holiday for you guys. It’s NO CHURN, has plenty of kruidnootjes mixed in and is swirled with (homemade) salted caramel. Although I made this recipe for the Dutch holiday, you can easily substitute the kruidnootjes with ginger cookies and turn this ice cream into a delicious Christmas edition. I bet this is one of the easiest delicious holiday dessert recipes you’ll find.

How excited are you for the holidays? What are your plans so far?

  1. I AM SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO READY FOR CHRISTMAS. I even already have my little Christmas tree in my room XD and the food!!!!!! Sinterklaas time always makes me so happy, even though we don’t celebrate it at all I still get to eat all the food! December is the month in which I get fat and then all I want is to hibernate :L And the ice cream looks really good, but the video doesn’t work? :< Either way I love the idea of adding kruidnoten to ice cream!
