Homemade Ice Cream!

Standard

Summer has arrived and it’s going to be in the 90’s this weekend!  A bit hot for me but it is a good time for some homemade ice cream.  Amie bought this Cuisinart for me a few years ago for Mother’s Day.  There is nothing like homemade ice cream.  I love this recipe and if you have a Cuisinart Ice Cream maker then you really need to give this a try.  Here you go:

Chocolate Mint Chip

1 cup Whole Milk

½ cup Granulated Sugar

8 oz. Choc Chips of your choice (I used mint chips cause I had them & I measured out 1 cup of chips for the processor and add the rest of the bag to the final process)

2 cups (1 pint) heavy cream – well chilled

1 ½ teaspoon peppermint extract

In a blender or food processor fitted with a metal blade, pulse sugar & 8 oz of chips until the chips are finely chopped (easier to melt).  Heat the whole milk until it’s just bubbling around the edges.  Once milk is heated – add to food processor with the sugar & chips, process until well blended. Then transfer to medium bowl to cool completely.  Once cooled, stir in the heavy cream and peppermint extract.  Chill in fridge for 30 minutes or longer.

Turn machine on and pour chilled mixture into your freezer bowl through the lid spout.  Let thicken about 25 minutes. Then I add the rest of my chips from the bag and let it thicken 5 more minutes. Eat it now or put into a freezer container to harden. ENJOY!
