Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream


This is my all-time FAVORITE ice cream flavor, bar none. This recipe is so pure and simple, I have to restrain myself from making it every week. :)

Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream 
recipe by
Yields: 1-1/2 quarts (14--1/2 cup servings)

1 cup whole milk
3/4 cup sugar
2 cups heavy cream
1 tsp pure mint extract
1 cup mint chips or chocolate chips 

In a medium mixing bowl, use a hand mixer on low speed to combine the milk and sugar until the sugar is dissolved--about 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in heavy cream and mint extract.

Turn the machine on; pour the mixture into the (frozen) freezer bowl, and let mix until thickened--about 20 to 25 minutes. Pour in mint or chocolate chips and let combine for 5 minutes. The ice cream will have a soft, creamy texture. If a firmer consistency is desired, transfer the ice cream to an airtight container and place in freezer for about 2 hours.
