50 Recipes: Thin Mint Ice Cream

Yum yum yum yum! This ice cream was sooooo good! (I say was, because the two of us just ate the last little bit). After buying a box of Thin Mints off of a little girl sitting outside of Scheels, and after eating more than half of the box, the thought occured to me to turn these heavenly cookies into something more - Thin Mint Ice Cream! Simply delicious!

We have been making our own ice creams since we received our ice cream maker in the mail as a wedding gift from some lovely friends. My mom also gave me her Ben & Jerry's cook book to compliment the present. Needless to say, our home is fill with delicious frozen treats quite often. =)

Ingredients: (Makes one quart)

  • 2/3 cup of chopped Thin Mint chunks
  • 2 large eggs (this grosses me out, as it does a lot of people, it is OK to make your ice cream with out them, but advise you eat it right away because the ice cream won't store well)
  • 3/4 cups sugar
  • 2 cups heavy or whipping cream
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons peppermint extract
  • 5ish drops of green food coloring
  1. after crunching up the cookies, place in the refrigerator.
  2. Whisk the eggs in a bowl until light & fluffy.
  3. Whisk in the sugar, a little at a time. 
  4. Pour in cream & milk and whisk to blend.
  5. Add peppermint extract & food coloring and blend again.
  6. Transfer this mixture to your ice cream maker
  7. Follow your maker's manufacturer's freezing inctructions.
  8. After ice cream stiffens, just before it is done, add the cookies and continue freezing until it is the right, creamy consistency.
  9. and enjoy!
