Nicki's Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Jane Whittaker


Nicki wanted to use the chocolate mint he had growing in back of his apt, and asked could we make some chocolate chip mint ice cream. I said why not and we put our heads together and came up with this.
It is minty, chocolatey and really refreshing.
