The other night, when I was getting ready to go to sleep, I looked in the mirror to see some bloodshot eyes staring back at me.
No, it wasn't Halloween, it was me. Staying up too late as usual. Well I tried going to sleep, but nothing was working. I was tossing and turning like crazy. So what did I do?
Made ice cream of course! Mint chocolate to be precise, because it's getting closer to christmas. Since I have not made anything halloween themed, I need to make up for that in the weeks leading up to christmas :)
What you'll need:
-2 cups 2% milk
-2 cups coffee cream (18%)
-1 cup white sugar
-1/2 teaspoon salt
-1 teaspoon vanilla extract
-1 teaspoon peppermint extract
-1 cup chocolate chips
+green gel food coloring
1. In a large bowl, mix together the milk, cream, sugar, salt, vanilla and peppermint until the sugar is dissolved. Color with a small amount of the food coloring.
2. Pour the mixture into your ice cream maker and process according to manufacturer's instructions. About 5 minutes before the ice cream is done, add in the chocolate chips. When the ice cream is done, pour into a airtight container and freeze for at least 2 hours.
