Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Homemade creamy Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream is made with just five ingredients using a sauce pan and ice cream machine. A little bit of prep work and chill time, but totally worth the intense mint flavor. This is unlike any other ice cream you buy in the store, it's so much better.
