Andes Mint Chip Ice Cream

Just close your eyes for a second what I mention Andes Crème de Menthe.  You can almost smell the minty deliciousness can’t you?  Mint chip ice cream has always been one of my favorites and this Andes Mint Chip Ice Cream does not disappoint.

It is so minty, so creamy, studded with mint bits and just plain amazing. On a side note, these mint bits can be used for baking as well.  They are so versatile! To say I love it would be an understatement. At this point in my life, if I had to choose ONE ice cream to have for the rest of my life, this would be it.

    This is a great recipe! I have made it with the Andes chips and also just with chopped semi-sweet chocolate. Whole foods extract is really strong, so I cut it back to 1 tsp on the second batch and it was perfect. Super easy, and much better than store-bought. Thank you!
