Refreshing, creamy, homemade best Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream recipe with mini chocolate chips!

Ever since I got the KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker Attachment Christmas, we have been making a lot of ice cream. We started off by making everyone’s favorites: Cookies and Cream, Strawberry, and, now, Mint Chocolate Chip.

Mint Chocolate Chip (or MCC as it’s called in my house) is my oldest’s favorite! He loves everything mint and chocolate and, when you combine them together, he is in heaven!

This ice cream base is egg free and super simple to make! Just mix all of your ingredients together and throw them into the ice cream maker. It’s that easy!

Tips for making Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream with the KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker Attachment:

  • Don’t forget to put the KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker Bowl in the freezer for a least 24 hours. You need the bowl to be frozen solid to make your ice cream.
  • You also need to make your ice cream base at least 3-6 hours before churning. It needs to cool and chill properly.
  • Make sure you have the proper container to store your ice cream. That is if you don’t eat it all in one sitting. I have found the Oxo Glass 8 Cup Container to work the best. It holds one batch of ice cream and is air tight.

Here’s everything you need to make your own mint chocolate chip ice cream at home!
