  6. A mixture completely cool, add the peppermint extract, one teaspoon 1 / 4 at a time, tasting the mixture after each addition, until you reach the desired level peppermintiness. (Different peppermint extract varied in strength.) Freeze in your ice cream maker according to manufacturer's instructions.  
  7. After ice cream has been formed in the ice cream maker, it will be quite soft. Fold in crushed peppermint candy. Put in airtight plastic container and place in refrigerator for at least one hour, preferably several hours. If you have been frozen for more than one day, you may need to let it sit at room temperature for several minutes to soften it before serving.
