Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Recipe // It is great to be back here at Whipperberry! Let’s talk about one of my favorite summer treats… Ice cream! It gets pretty warm here in Utah. As the temperatures rise, my mind gets busy trying to think of fun and new flavors of ice cream to make. I always end up back at the old standby of chocolate chip. This time I wanted to get a little crazy and add a little somthin’ extra!
Now, you might be surprised to learn that I DO NOT own an ice cream maker! *GASP!* So how is it that I made this amazingly fluffy and delicious looking treat? Easy! I combined two basic ingredients, added in my mixers and froze away. You can see the tutorial for the basic two ingredient ice cream here.
Here is what you will need: 2 cups of heavy whipping cream 1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk 1 cup chocolate chunks 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract Now, let’s get started! In a small bowl mix together the condensed milk, chocolate chunks, and extracts. Set aside. Whisk your heavy cream in the bowl of an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Gently fold your whipped cream into your condensed milk mixture. Pour this into an airtight container and transfer to your freezer. Allow to freeze 6 hours, or overnight.
I like to chop my chocolate chunks a bit to make them a little smaller, but that’s just personal preference.
The best thing about this recipe is how adaptable it is! Don’t like mint or chocolate chips? No problem! Switch them out for cherries or cheesecake. Or stick with plain ol’ vanilla. The possibilities are endless! Hop over to my site and check out a few of the fun flavors I’ve made!2
