Did you know M&Ms recently created a new flavor? They did and it’s good! If you’ve visited Walmart recently you might have noticed these bright orange bags of the new White Chocolate Candy Corn M&Ms. They’re BIG, they’re soft and full of rich white chocolate flavor. Each bag contains a mix of orange, yellow and white supposedly to represent candy corn but I think they would have been a little cuter tri-colored.

Being the super freak I am about white chocolate, I picked up a dozen of these to use throughout the month in different recipes. I really wanted something that would make the white chocolate pop and got the idea to try a homemade white chocolate ice cream. Now you could probably use any old white chocolate you want, but I LOVE the Lindt White Chocolate bars, so they worked perfectly for this recipe.

The end result is the richest, creamiest, homemade ice cream I’ve ever made.

    YUMMMMMM!!! I do not like M&M’s or Candy Corn, but these were addicting…and your ice cream looks to die for!!! The M&M’s tasted more like White Chocolate and Cotton Candy flavor to me, and truly I crave them every day now! Good to know they’re only a Walmart thing…I’ll stop searching every dang aisle of every other store and break down and go to Wally World.

    Thanks for sharing your delicious recipe!!!
