mint chocolate chip ice cream

the perfect refreshing summer dessert!
mint chocolate chip ice cream
3 cups heavy cream
1 cup milk
1 cup sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoons peppermint extract
5 drops green food coloring
1 cup mini chocolate chips
stir together cream, milk, sugar, salt, vanilla and peppermint extract in a bowl. stir until sugar is dissolved. add food coloring. pour into ice cream freezer and process. add in chocolate chips after about 13 minutes. after ice cream processes and is semi-set (about 20-25 minutes,) put in a tupperware in freezer. freeze at least a couple of hours.
*i didn't have any mini chips. i put regular chocolate chips in my food processor and pulsed a few times for small chips. 1 cup of half and half can substitute for a cup of cream. mix up the milk cream combos, but if you decrease the cream, at least try to use whole milk. careful that your mix uses enough cream/butterfat to avoid icy ice cream.
