Mint Ice Cream

I`ve told you guys before that I love mint chip ice I definitely want to try more than just one recipe. Hehe. This is another recipe where I used peppermint extract instead of real mint leaves.

This recipe definitely has more of a refreshing mint taste instead of the real herbal mint leaves from infusing it into the milk mixture.

This ice cream recipe is more like the store-brought ice cream everyone is used to. I love this version too! I say, try both!

I had some Andes baking chips, so I used those instead of cutting up a package of Andes candies. Also, unlike the original recipe, I used peppermint extract instead of the mint extract it called for. I listed the ingredients I used for the recipe below. :)

Also, if you`re one of those people who prefer not to eat raw eggs, you might want to stay clear of this recipe. As it does not cook the eggs beforehand.
