It’s summer time and that means more ice cream. I don’t think I could ever get tired of eating ice cream, especially on a hot day. And this method for making ice cream is just so easy. There’s no reason not to make ice cream as often as you can!

Now before we get to the recipe, I have to explain this addiction I have. I love candy. Especially when it’s chocolate. I love all the holidays, especially the ones that come with the stores full of seasonal candy. I’m the person that goes in the day after the holiday and stocks up on all my favorites for 50% off.

I don’t care that the wrappers may be red and green, or pretty pastel colors. I care about what’s inside the wrapper.

I’m almost a hoarder when it comes to my candy. I’ll leave one bag out for the kids to find, letting them think that’s all there is. Letting them devour it. Knowing, secretly, that there are 3 more bags tucked away in the back of one of the cabinet. I have some self control. For me, it’s the security of knowing it’s there, when I need it.

So when I decide I want ice cream, again, I know where to look for inspiration. The Andes Mints were the perfect choice. The cool refreshing mint, the dark chocolate,

  1. I love the deep dark color of your chocolate ice creams, Joan, do you like a specific brand or type of cocoa powder?

  2. Holy cow that looks amazing! I love andes mints, I’ll have to try this someday! 🙂

  3. I love Andes Mint Too! Pinning! Nettie

  4. I could make myself sick on those Andes mints….they are the best ever.

    And in ice cream??? OHMYGOD!!! Heaven!!

  5. DeAnna Anderson says:

    Is there a basic recipe that doesn’t require a machine? I’m not sure I would like all the mint in both the ice cream and the mix in. It would be great to make a base vanilla or chocolate ice cream and be able to add any mix in to it.

  6. Jaye Cantagallo says:

    I ve never made ice cream, but when I saw this I sure plan to. I love DARK choc, AND mint! You are absolutely right about hiding goodies……it’s just knowing they are there! Thanks for sharing!

  7. Joan this is awesome!! I love mint chocolate, and obviously Andes are AMAZING!

  8. This ice cream looks so good, and I love chocolate and mint mixed together. Will this recipe work with fat-free sweetened condensed milk? I have not used the fat-free version in any baking, so I wonder if it would effect the creaminess of the ice cream.

  9. This ice cream is seriously oh so dreamy!

  10. I LOVE ANDES MINTS! And this ice cream just looks sooooo amazing-I want a big bowl right now!

    oh and btw this ice cream method is to blame for Michael gaining 20 pounds-I made it too often! lol

  11. you made this without an ice cream maker?! love it! I’ve made vanilla ice cream like this and can’t wait to try this one! We love Andes mint chocolates! yummmm! looks so good!

  12. Oh, I love chocolate and mint together and ice cream is my favorite dessert. It looks like I found an awesome summer recipe!

  13. I keep a hidden stash of chocolate too. Just in case. Which is more often than not.
    This ice cream is calling to me…especially since no machine is needed.
    Thank you for linking with See Ya in the Gumbo this week.

  14. Mmm, this looks dreamy, Joan! So easy to put together and with all that cream in it, it’s gotta be smooth as buttah! My husband’s a crazy Andes fan, and we love ice cream ’round here, so I should definitely put this on my to-do list this week. Love it! P.S. I’m a secret stash candy hoarder too!

  15. I too, am an “almost candy hoarder”. I love having a secret stash that no one knows about just in case! And even better if it was 50% off. This ice cream looks so chocolatey and creamy too. Pinning to try soon!

  16. I made your easy chocolate ice cream!! Yes, very easy and very, very good, fantastic! If I wanted to make just vanilla ice cream and throw in candies, nuts…would I just use this same recipe minus the cocoa powder? I am anxious to try your other recipes!

    • To make vanilla Ice Cream, omit the cocoa powder and add a couple of teaspoons vanilla extract. So glad you’re enjoying this recipe, it’s one of my favorites!
