We are really into ice cream over here at the Salzman house. My kids have been requesting “mint chip ice cream” and I simply had to honor their request.
We were having an impromptu, spur of the moment dinner with some friends (lots of kids) which gave me a good excuse to make more ice cream.
I really didn’t want to use the recipe from the Cuisinart manual, so I surfed the net. I found a recipe on Food Network.com and although the ingredients were a little different than the previous ice cream attempts, I thought how bad can half and half, sugar and eggs be?
I went with a recipe by Alton Brown, the crazy guy on the food network. The only thing I changed was I substituted mini chocolate chips for bittersweet chocolate chunks. Everyone agreed that this was a winning recipe.
