Homemade Ice Cream Recipe

For those of you who are curious as to what mint chocolate ice cream recipe we used during this post allow me to share it with you. But, before I get into the recipe itself, let me state that we simply took our vanilla ice cream recipe and turned it into a mint chocolate recipe! We used this recipe to help us decide on proportions for the vanilla and mint extract.

Mint Chocolate Ice Cream

2 eggs
1-1/2 c. sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
1-1/4 tsp. peppermint extract
5 c. liquid (1/2-half & half and 1/2 whipping cream)
1 cup miniature semi sweet chocolate chips

Combine all ingredients and blend well. Pour into ice cream freezer and freeze according to directions. Right before the ice cream looks 'done', add the chocolate chips. Adding them at the beginning will cause them to sink and become distributed through the ice cream.
Makes about 2 quarts.

While I was looking around on the Internet for a different ice cream recipes, I ran across this delicious sounding recipe. We will be making it next time as it sounds to good to be true and even more wonderful than anything we've ever made! We even have the mint plants to do it with!

Oh how I wish we had an ice cream maker, lol. This sounds delicious. I don't know what it is, but homemade is SO much better than any store-bought and the noise the thing makes is comforting to me. Reminds me of Mamaw's :)

I agree, Mrs. Hester, homemade ice cream is so much more delicious than store bought! Maybe the difference is that homemade is made with loving hands while store bought is made by machines. :o) All I know is that I'd rather have it over the cartons of it in the store!!

Ashley S.- You are more than welcome! I'm glad that you enjoyed the post!
