Graham Canyon Ice Cream

This Graham Canyon Ice Cream has a luscious graham cracker base with chunks of chocolate covered honeycomb candy, pieces of graham crackers, and mini chocolate chips for good measure. It's my take on one of the most popular flavors served at the Creamery on Ninth at my alma mater, BYU.
