Home Made Chocolate Ice Cream with Chocolate Mint Candy

This is from my ice cream maker recipe booklet, but I added the Ghirardelli dark and mint chocolate square candies (Andes would be great too) to the ice cream, then I swirled some hot fudge chocolate sauce through when I put it into the pan that goes into the freezer.
Will have a pict tonight. Right now it's firming up.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
The combination of chocolate and mint are just right in this recipe. Very chocolaty with a good hint of mint. Can't wait to make this again when I have an ice cream craving!
