We have a very old electric ice cream maker and have tried many different flavors & recipes over the years. Once we discovered this recipe, though, we stopped making anything else! It is sooo creamy and delicious. My mother-in-law found it on All Recipes, submitted by Darryn M. Briggs.
2 cups 2% milk
2 cups heavy cream
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp peppermint extract
3 drops green food coloring (optional)
1 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips (chop in food processor)
1. In a large bowl, stir together milk, cream, sugar, salt, vanilla extract and peppermint extract until the sugar has dissolved. Color to your liking with the green food coloring.
2. Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer’s instructions. After about 10 minutes into the freezing, add the chocolate chips. After the ice cream has thickened, about 30 minutes later, spoon into a container, and freeze for 2 hours.
