Mint-Dark Chocolate Chunk Ice-cream
2 cups whole Cream
1 cup milk
1 cup Sugar
3 tablespoons pure mint extract (not flavoring)
½ cup finely chopped fresh mint leaves
½ bag (of a 12 ounce bag) dark chocolate chunks
Green food coloring
Mix cream, sugar and extract together, whisk until sugar is dissolved. Add in mint leaves and set in fridge to chill at least 4 hrs. (I typically make the custard the day before, chill the ice cream machine ring overnight, and they are both ready to go the next day).
Prepare according to ice cream maker instructions and during the last 10 minutes, add chocolate chunks, and periodically drip one to two drops green food coloring into the ice cream maker. You only want a slight green hue, and just vague streaks, so be frugal. Freeze for an additional two hours, then serve.
