    This is just delicious! My husband, who is a connoisseur of mint chocolate chip ice cream, agrees completely with your nephew. My 103 year old mother loves it, and I have just made it again for her birthday. I added 1 Tbs of Creme de Menthe to help keep it soft — adds to the color and flavor, too.

    I have made this recipe a number of times quite successfully, but I’ve never tried adding spirits to it to keep it soft. How much does it affect the flavor if you add vanilla extract or some other alcohol?

    Excellent, creamy, custard ice cream, but NOT the best choice for mint chocolate chip. I have made this recipe probably 5 times now over two years. I always forget to nix most of the eggs for mint chocolate chip. It’s too custard-y for mint ice cream. Remove at least 4 of the egg yolks (you will not get the same spoon- coating custard, but it will taste way more like mint chocolate chip. I definitely suggest you use this recipe for a chocolate, vanilla bean, or butter pecan.

    Hello! I noticed that you said to use fresh spearmint leaves, or peppermint extract if you don’t have fresh mint. My question, is that I am growing peppermint in my garden and it is taking over, so have you ever made this using fresh peppermint leaves instead? If so, should I use less since peppermint tends to have a stronger flavor than spearmint? My other question is if I am making this to share with a child, I assume I should use vanilla extract over a spirit! :) How much should I add and how long will it keep the ice cream if I add this?
