Mint Chocolate Ice Cream

I’m joining the Fantastical Food Fight this month where the challenge is to create a recipe with Mint and Chocolate. I decided to make Mint Chocolate Ice Cream as this is a family favorite.

While I decided against turning my ice cream green, this can easily be accomplished if you love the green color for your ice cream; just add a few drops of green food color to the ice cream mixture before putting it in the ice cream maker. Turning the ice cream green is a fun way to make this a great St. Patrick’s day treat, and that holiday is fast approaching.

This recipe is really easy to pull together. Just combine the milk, cream, sugar and extracts, freeze in the ice cream maker, add the chocolate pieces while freezing and then freeze until firm and ready to serve. You can add chocolate syrup to make this truly sinful. This ice cream will disappear quickly, at least it does in my house, so be sure to grab a bowl to enjoy before it is gone!

  1. I’m with Wendy, I love that you used Andes mints instead of chocolate chips. Great way of getting even more chocolate mint flavor into the ice cream.
