Description

This mint with dark chocolate no-churn ice cream comes with a warning that once you make it your family might beg daily for this rendition of a traditional mint chocolate chip ice cream.  Adding mint to the dark chocolate adds another layer of flavor, while the creaminess of the ice cream stacks up against and may be even better than any store-bought version.

2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 can sweetened condensed milk
4 drops green food coloring
3 tablespoons mint extract

Dark Chocolate Mix-In
4 ounces dark chocolate, broken in small pieces
2 ounces heavy whipping cream
1 tsp mint extract

Instructions

Prepare the dark chocolate by combining the chocolate and cream in a microwave safe bowl.  Microwave until just melted (about 30 seconds).  Add mint extract; stir until smooth and set aside to cool.

For the ice cream, whip the heavy cream, food coloring (optional) and mint extract with a high-speed blender until stiff peaks form.  Gently fold in sweetened condensed milk with a spatula. 

Spoon into a container.  Drizzle with the dark chocolate, cover and freeze for a minimum of four hours. 

Garnish with fresh mint.

The V formation itself is a thing of beauty.  I understand that on long journeys one person cannot be expected to carry the full weight and responsibility.  When it is shared, the burden is lighter, the investment is deeper, and there is a benefit to having a range of experience to draw upon.
