Chocolate Mint Ice Cream
Makes about fourteen 1/2-cup servings
- 1-1/2 cups whole milk
- 3/4 cup chocolate syrup
- 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 3 cups heavy cream
- 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
- 1 cup chopped chocolate mint candies (such as Andes®) or mint chocolate morsels or 1 cup chopped peppermint patty candies
- In a medium mixing bowl, use a hand mixer on low speed to combine the milk, chocolate syrup, and granulated sugar until the sugar is dissolved, about 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the heavy cream and peppermint. Turn the machine on; pour the mixture into freezer bowl, and let mix until thickened, about 20 to 25 minutes. Five minutes before mixing is completed, add the reserved chopped candies or morsels and let mix in completely. The ice cream will have a soft, creamy texture. If a firmer consistency is desired, transfer the ice cream to an airtight container and place in freezer for about 2 hours. Remove from freezer about 15 minutes before serving.
