Chocolate Mint Ice Cream Recipe

You don't need an ice cream freezer to enjoy homemade ice cream. Re-create that handmade taste with from-scratch ingredients ... or start with purchased ice cream and create a nutty ice cream pie.


“When the weather gets hot, my family really enjoys this cool combination of chocolate and mint,” says Fran Skaff of Egg Harbor, Wisconsin. “It doesn’t require an ice cream maker — all that you need is an ordinary freezer. My ice cream’s versatile, too. We’ve used crushed Heath bars, Oreo cookies, and miniature chocolate chips in place of the Andes candies.”

Ingredients

  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup chocolate syrup
  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 1 package (4.67 ounces) mint Andes candies (28 pieces), chopped

    How to make it

    In a small bowl, combine the milk and chocolate syrup; set aside.
