Hand Made Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Submitted by: DRAGONESS2134

Introduction

No need for an ice cream maker if you happen to have a serious craving for something sweet.

The overall effort to make this ice cream is fairly simple and quick (not counting freezing time). And there really IS nothing better than some good old fashioned, home made ice cream.

  • The directions call for egg whites but in the list of ingredients it list 3 egg yolks. Which do you need for this recipe? I am thinking of trying this one over the weekend. - 1/4/10
