Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream with Andes Mints-because you can never have too much mint and chocolate!!

I’ve owned my ice cream maker for at least 10 years. I go through spurts of making ice cream, My maker actually sat in the back of the storage room for 3 summers in a row at one point.

Sometimes it’s just easier to pick up a gallon of ice cream at the store. And I do keep a gallon of the cheap vanilla ice cream in the freezer. It’s great for emergencies, like when you need a milkshake now! And since I almost always add something to my milkshakes, it’s ok that it’s not top shelf ice cream.

That said, there is nothing better in this world than homemade ice cream.  Knowing the ingredients that go in. Sugar, Milk, Whipping cream, some flavor, some chocolate…good stuff. And only the good stuff.

Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream has always been my favorite flavor. And I always loved the green version. It just looked minty-er.  Food coloring is optional but don’t skimp on the Andes Candy. Those chocolate mint candies just put this ice cream over the top.
