The Best Store-Bought Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream
Mint chocolate chip is America's third favorite ice cream flavor — find out which brand reigns supreme.
"This is a GREAT mint chocolate chip ice cream that I discovered by accident. The 2% milk makes the ice cream taste 'lighter' I think."
So Good. This was my first home-made ice cream and I am so impressed! It tastes just like store bought, but it's so much more fun. The only thing is that maybe I wouldn't fill up the ice cream maker to the top - the ice cream "grows" as it becomes more and more frozen. It would have overflown if I hadn't been watching it. Oh another thing - put your choco chips in the freezer for the first ten minutes the mixture is churning to bring the temperature down.
I made this ice cream and it came out very well. Tasted and smelled just like store bought mint ice cream. I used food coloring and made it mint green as well. this was my first try and ice cream and i had trouble with the chips sticking to the bottom. I did try stirring every 20 minutes or so but the chips weren't swirled throughout. Good recipe and instructions but i don't think icecream is my strongpoint. *** I recently retried this recipe using an ice cream maker and it came out perfectly.
Great recipe! Ice cream was very creamy! Although, I made a few changes. First, I used half n half instead of the 2% milk. Also, I used 2 teaspoons of peppermint extract since I tasted it before I put it in the ice cream maker and it wasn't "minty" enough for my liking. Third, I used 5 drops of food coloring to get a better green tint. And lastly, I did use shaved semi-sweet chocolate, so I could get more of a store-bought look. And plus, you can get small blocks of chocolate at some higher end grocery stores for pretty cheap (I used Callebaut from Whole Foods). Another note, this recipe will overflow in some ice cream makers (I used a regular Cuisinart one). You might have to either do this in 2 batches or reduce the ingredients by 1/2.
Fan-Freaking-Fantastic!! I will NEVER buy mint ice cream from a store again--and I really mean that. This is so simple to make and so much tastier than store-bought, who needs Dreyers?? I made this almost exactly per the recipe, except that I tripled the peppermint flavoring. (We really love cool MINT at our house! And triple is just right for us.) I also chopped up some mint chocolate bars and mint chocolate chips instead of using plain chocolate (I stock up on these at Christmas time and freeze them for later use). And I didn't measure the chocolate, just eye-balled it. The texture of the ice cream is perfect--creamy, but not like eating Cool-Whip, like so many other ice cream recipes are. Make it the day before you want to eat it so it can set up thoroughly. And if any of it lasts in your freezer for a week or two without being devoured, the taste actually gets even better over time. I experimented with one batch where I was trying to reduce the naughtiness a bit and used half and half instead o

I need more stars! This turned out absolutely wonderful. I used mint extract, it's what I had on the spice shelf. I also bought Baker's semi-sweet chocolate in the squares and shaved it. That in itself is really what put this recipe over the top, although the basic ice cream recipe is great. I froze a small container for 2 weeks waiting to give it to a mint choc chip. lover I know. I was worried it would get icy or be harder that a rock. But, he thought he had died and went to heaven! I don't care for the recipes without cream, I think it's lacking, and if you freeze it it turns to ice.On the other hand I don't like it when there's so much fat that the roof of your mouth is grease coated, the flavor gets lost. It must be the 2% milk that prevented this. Sometimes you just have to realize that cutting calories in a recipe is not worth it. If your going to go to all the trouble it should taste pretty good, otherwise I'll just go to the store and buy ice milk! Thanks for the great recipe!
That bag of chocolate chips in your pantry may look unassuming, but it's actually full of delicious possibilities.
