Homemade Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

mint chocolate chip ice cream

A few weeks back, I picked up a bag of the Hershey’s Mint Chocolate Chips during a grocery trip!  I’ll admit they were an impulse purchase, but I just knew they would taste fabulous in homemade ice cream!

I used the recipe for Homemade Butterfinger Ice Cream and simply substituted the butterfinger for the chocolate chips.  They did melt a bit and once they were churned they turned into flakes, but I thought that tasted better than having the entire chocolate chip!
