One of our family favorites for the ice cream machine. Prep time does not include the time for freezing.

This was my very first ice cream recipe and it turned out PERFECT. I did use whole milk instead of the skim that the recipe called for and followed my ice cream maker recommendation to put the chips in about 10 minutes before the end of the mixing. This was fantastic and froze to the right consistency.
