Andes Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Apparently we've been on an ice cream kick lately. Dave's favorite ice cream ever is Mint Chocolate Chip and his favorite candy is Andes mints, so the combination was obvious. One of my favorite boards posted this recipe and I just subbed Andes mints for Junior Mints.

Homemade Chocolate Mint Ice Cream

1 1/2 cup whole milk
1/2 cup sugar
pinch of salt
1/3 cup heavy cream
2/3 cup half and half
1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
1 small box Junior mints, diced or halved 1/2 box Andes mints, diced
4 drops green food coloring, optional

Mix milk, salt and sugar with a wire whip until sugar dissolves. Add remaining ingredients and stir. Freeze in 1 1/2 quart ice cream freezer according to manufacturer's instructions.
