My two favorite ice creams in the world: Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup and Mint Chocolate Chip.
I tried the whole Peanut Butter and Chocolate bit and was disappointed.
I tried Mint Chocolate chip and I hit it out of the ballpark.
WaaaaaaaaaaaaaaZOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM. There she goes!
This ice cream tastes like you bought it from the store. I kid you not.
I would like to try a variation some day (when my mint patch is finally ginormous) that involves steeping real mint leaves in the cream before freezing...but until then, peppermint extract does the job quite nicely.
I liked this ice cream so much that when I taste-tested it two Fridays ago after the children were in bed, I promptly decided that I wouldn't tell them I made it. (What they don't know won't hurt them.) I then proceeded to eat the entire container over the next week. It is that good.
Go make it already- and then... invite me over.
