Well ladies and gents it's true. I did it myself and while I didn't think it would work, I must say I am pleasantly surprised to report that not only was it super easy to make and quite fun but also the creamiest ice cream I have ever had. It was like it was triple churned!
I made mint chocolate chip for my first time out and it was triple fab yum! Unfortunately, by the time I got the camera out to take a photo for you to see, my kids and hubby found the goods so all I got was this serving that was left on film!
For the cast of creamy characters you'll need:
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
- 1 tsp. peppermint extract (add more if you'd like more mint flavoring)
- 1-2 drops of green food coloring (optional)
- 1/2 cup of chocolate chips (mini sized work best)
In a large bowl, add peppermint to heavy cream and whip until stiff peaks form. In a separate bowl, stir food coloring, chips and sweetened condensed milk. Then fold the whipped cream into the mix.
Pour into a 2-quart container and cover. Freeze for 6 hours or until firm. Store in the freezer for up to 6 months.
Just think of the variations you can have with this recipe! If you think of any feel free to post them in the comments section below.
