Mint Dark Chocolate Chunk Ice Cream

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.


  1. I've just broken out the ice cream maker so looking forward to trying this, and some of the other gorgeous icy treats on your blog.

  2. chocolate mint-couldn't pass on one of my favorite combos, especially in ice cream form. How I would so enjoy a bowl of this. Thanks for sharing this frosty treat.

  3. Promise me 2 bowls of this? Looks so refreshing and perfect for this time of year. Beautiful!

  4. Looks so good. The combo of mint and chocolate is so classic. I could eat a few bowls of this one.

  5. I love mint ice cream! Yours looks so decadent and refreshing!

  6. @Eat-drink-love-This is seriously so fresh, it makes you feel like you did't actually just eat a bowl of icecream.

    @Kim Bee-the better quality chocolate you use-the better the result.

  7. Yum! My favorite flavor combinations and you make it look so easy!
