This recipe is so wonderful! Have made it three times and it is extremely easy to make and is just smooth and terrific. I use regular milk chocolate chips and chop them up a bit because I haven't had mini chips around the house lately. I made it with half and half and heavy cream instead of the low fat milk - so decadent! I also used fat free milk and cream and it was just as good. Thanks for sharing this!

All the boys gave this 5 stars. I had to use the regular sized chocolate chips, but it didn't matter. Everyone loved it and very very easy to make, in fact, this is the first time I have made ice cream and it came out wonderfully. Thanks so much! ~ update: needed an easy recipe for cookies and cream ice cream and adapted this - left out peppermint, added extra tsp vanilla, and whipped it up in the ice cream maker, then stirred in cookies before popping the whole of it in my freezer for a few hours. Big hit! Thanks again!

My husband requested mint chocolate chip ice cream for Father’s Day and this recipe was exactly what I was looking for! The flavor is wonderful and I like how we can change the amount of mint flavoring to suit our tastes. The recipe was also very fast and easy, not keeping me in the kitchen over a stove making a custard. Ironically, the only reason we are not rating it a five star is actually due to the fact that we did not make a custard base. For this reason, the ice cream did not have a very creamy texture like we prefer. For ease and flavor, this is a 5 star. For texture, it is a 3-4 star.

Very tasty and easy to make. It's a "clean" mint flavor with no aftertaste. This is so easy that it makes no sense to purchase mint ice cream ever again!

Very good recipe. I used 1/2 n 1/2 and whole milk, because thats what I had on hand. I also subbed crushed up thin mint girl scout cookies for the chocolate chips - amazing.

Yum! We loved this! Omitted the food coloring and used regular chocolate chips, finely chopped. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Wonderful! I took others' advice and chopped the chocolate chips down fine with the very tasty result of every bite having shards of chocolate. This ice cream is super tasty and easy to make. Just the right balance of mint-y-ness and chocolate-y-ness! Thanks for sharing this recipe!

I loved it! I'll probably shave the chocolate next time as per other reviewers, for a finer texture. Although if I can find the Andes mint chips again, I'll use them.

Made this for Memorial Day BBQ, everyone loved it! Instead of using chocolate chips I used Lindt Dark Mint Chocolate, and I shaved it. Thanks for the recipe! :)
