Ok, I have a confession that does not always go over well. I Connie, do not like ice cream. I know, I know, and I can't really say what it is I don't like so much. I think it's more just that if I'm going to have a sweet treat I would rather it be cookies or cupcakes or cakes. But my finance's favorite dessert (and possibly favorite thing) in the whole world is ice cream, specifically mint chocolate chip. So when I found this recipe I figured I'd try it out for him. But then the surprise came that even I liked it!! I'm not even kidding you! And the best part is that it's super easy to make!
For this recipe you'll need:
1 pint heavy whipping cream
1 14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk
1 bunch of fresh mint
Green food coloring (totally optional but ya know, we base all of Soma & Ulte around our color stories :)
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Start by combining heavy whipping cream and fresh mint in a sauce pan and heat over low heat until cream begins to steam and bubble slightly around the edges, do not boil or simmer! Then remove from heat and allow it to cool to room temperature. Once it reaches room temp place it in refrigerator until very cold. Then remove the mint and pour cream into the bowl of an electric mixer and add food coloring if you're using it. Whip cream on high until firm peaks form then fold in sweetened condensed milk until fully incorporated. Next fold in your chocolate chips. Transfer to a loaf pan and cover with plastic wrap and freeze your ice cream over night. And you're done!
This is the moment I first tried the ice cream expecting to not like it but then...
Things changed and I finished the whole dang cone! I'm telling ya, you have to try this recipe! I hope y'all make this recipe this weekend and let us know what you think. Happy Friday!
