Chocolate Mint Ice Cream Recipe

“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.”


  • 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
