Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

For those of you who know me well, you know I am all about baking/ice creaming/cooking/etc. Here's a recipe I tried last night - it turned out to be really delicious!

2 cups skim milk
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup half & half
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 tsp mint (or peppermint) extract
3 drops green food coloring
1/2 cup Hershey's mint chocolate chips
1/2 cup Hershey's mini chocolate chips

In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients except chocolate chips. Stir until sugar is incorporated. If you have an ice cream maker, pour batter in and mix for 18 minutes. Add chocolate chips and let stir for 2 more minutes. Transfer batter into a freezer-safe container and freeze 4-8 hours depending of texture preference. If you don't have an ice cream maker, you can skip that step and just freeze your ice cream for a longer time period - probably around 12 hours. In this case, your chocolate chips will probably sink to the bottom, so you may want to reserve some to sprinkle on top when you eat it! Delicious!
