Homemade Mint Choc Chip Icecream – making a treat for Hubby and Youngest for the weekend.
Youngest has always been obsessed with anything Mint flavoured, and hubby adores Icecream, so to make up for my recent lack of baking I have made them some Mint Choc Chip Icecream
I am making the custard base in the Thermomix, but it’s easy to make in a pan too.
I start by adding 300ml milk and 300ml of double cream to the Thermomix jug, then 5 large egg yolks (save the whites for meringues) 100g of caster sugar.
I am adding a couple of drops of natural mint flavouring and a little green food colouring (a drop of blue and 7 of yellow) – be careful here, it’s easy to go over the top with both the flavour and the colour – you can always add more – no need to go the Kermit green I ended up with by adding twice the amount above 🤣🤣 Luckily the flavour is good 😊
I cook this for 8 minutes, heat 100 speed 3 till combined
Pop into the Icecream maker bowl, then into the fridge to cool
Then, when cool, into the Icecream maker for 45 minutes,
adding the chocolate chips 10 minutes before then end to combine
Kermint and Choc Chip Icecream 🤣🤣😊
I also made some Scones for the poor Carb hungry chaps
