Fresh Mint Chip Ice Cream
Fresh Mint Chip Ice Cream is made with real mint leaves and dark chocolate ~ summer eating doesn’t get any better! The zippy flavor of the fresh mint paired with an extra quantity of dark chocolate makes this the best mint chip ice cream I’ve ever tasted.
The minute the weather starts to warm up I start dreaming about ice cream flavors. My youngest daughter and I made our first trip of the season to our favorite ice cream shop the other night after dinner, I got Bourbon & Coffee, she got Chocolate Gooey Brownie, and I’ll have fabulous ice cream flavors swirling around in my brain from now until the end of August, when I’ll finally give it a rest until the next season.
