We all scream for...icecream!

We got a Cuisinart Ice cream maker for Christmas this year.  
There are several recipes for slushies, yogurts and icecream.  We chose to make mint chocolate chip icecream.  The recipe called for super simple ingredients:
1 cup whole milk (I used skim because that's what we drink)
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 1/2 tsp pure peppermint extract
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips (added the last 5 min)
several drops green food coloring

The kids loved watching the liquid turn into icecream in about 30 minutes.  It melted fast in their cups when we dished it up, but we just couldn't wait to let it set up in the freezer for any longer.  It tasted fantastic and so fresh.  This was a fun treat to make and enjoy together!
