Chocolate Chip Mint Ice cream

My son loves chocolate chip mint ice cream so I decided to make some with my Cuisinart ice cream maker I got for Christmas. I love that thing. It's so easy to make ice cream....TOO easy..I want to make it all the time!

This recipe was a big hit. I loved the mild mint flavor and the little bits of chocolate. It was so smooth, creamy, and refreshing.

 We all  loved a scoop after our meals the last couple of days..such a treat!

Chocolate Chip mint Ice cream
2 c. milk ( I used 1 %)
2 c. heavy cream
1 c. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. mint extract
3 drops green food color
1 c. miniature chocolate chips
Stir the milk, cream and sugar until sugar is dissolved. Add the salt, vanilla, mint, and food color, cover and refrigerate overnight. freeze according to the manufactures instructions. About 10 minutes into the freezing add the chocolate chips, and continue freezing until set.
