Welcome to this month’s Secret Recipe Club reveal! This month, my assignment was Our Eating Habits. Jamie’s blog is all about sharing recipes both from her kitchen as well as restaurant reviews. Jamie home-schools her three children and they all are Disney lovers. I might need to pick her brain since I won some hopper passes in a basket party last month and need to start planning our first family trip to Disney!
I had a full list of recipes picked from Jamie’s blog and had originally planned to make these pizza stuffed pretzels, but didn’t plan my time well this month. I love how Jamie lets her kids have their pick of the month – I might need to do that with my kiddos too! I went back to my original list and decided to go with her recipe for mint chocolate chip ice cream. My son helped me make it and had a great time. He was the first one to taste test it and kept telling me how delicious it was. Yes, my almost four-year old uses delicious all the time to describe food.
1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 1/2 cups milk
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 tsp mint extract
1/4 tsp sugar
2 drops green food coloring
3/4 cup mini chocolate chips
In a bowl, mix together the cream, milk, sugar, extracts, sugar and green color. Stir until the sugar dissolves. Transfer to your ice cream maker and allow to process for 10 minutes. Add in the chocolate chips and continue to churn the ice cream according to the machine’s instructions. Transfer to a freezer safe bowl and allow to harden.
