Author Notes: My step son Nicki had a lot of chocolate mint growing and he asked if we coould make some ice cream? I said why not! We used a vanilla ice cream for a base and added chocolate chips, maserated the mint in vodka, and some green food color for looks. —jane mcmillan
Makes about 1 quart
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 2 cups chocolate mint leaves
