Chocolate Mint Ice Cream {eggless}

As a child, one of my favorite things about going out to dinner {at this particular Mexican restaurant} was that after dinner our bill would come to us with 5 chocolate mints wrapped perfectly in green foil.

Don’t poach me, but I’m not a HUGE, all by itself, chocolate fan. I need chocolate + _______ to take the edge off.

Chocolate + Mint is one of my favorite combos, so this Chocolate Mint Ice Cream, is right up my ally.

It’s a basic chocolate ice cream blend that I infused with mint extract for a subtle, yet refreshing burst of chocolate-minty goodness.

I had a bag of Andes Mint Chips (found them in the baking isle by the other chocolate chips) that has been hanging out in my pantry just waiting for this moment. So I added a generous cup, and maybe a little more…

If you can’t find the chopped mint chips, you can probably find whole Andes Mints in the candy isle at your store, and give those a rough chop. Or just go with regular chocolate chopped up into small pieces!

The mint that is blended into the chocolate ice cream gives it a great flavor all by itself.

The mint chips add a little texture to the ice cream, and a little more of that nostalgic green foil mint that brings a smile to my face.

I also love how super easy this recipe is.

No eggs, just whisk it all together and throw it in your ice cream maker!
