Homemade Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Recipe

Homemade Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Recipe

Mint chocolate chip ice cream has been one of my favorite treats for as long as I can remember however it never even crossed my mind to create it myself. Yet when I picked up this adorable ice cream container (shop via links below) I knew I had to try something in it. While you can always use a machine (also linked below) to create ice cream, this recipe allows you to do just so without anything other than a large bowl & a whisk. Perfect for upcoming St. Patrick’s Day (hellooo it’s green!) or for a cozy night in, this ice cream won’t disappoint!
