Peppermint Chip Ice Cream

Homemade ice cream is one of my favorite treats. I had fresh mint leaves and some cream left over after making the Peppermint Cream Puff Ring earlier this week so I decided to make some ice cream this afternoon. I threw the ingredients in the ice cream freezer and in about 40 minutes had a delicious bowl of one of my favorite flavors--a great treat on a rather warm day.

  • Heavy whipping cream/half-and-half/milk in any combination to equal 4 cups
    --I had extra mint-flavored cream from when I steeped the mint leaves for the cream puffs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • Vanilla to taste
  • Peppermint flavoring if desired
  • Chopped chocolate chips (I used bittersweet)
