I Scream, You Scream

 We all scream for ice cream! With the temps near 100, it's the perfect time to whip up some homemade ice cream. This is a super easy recipe for chocolate mint chunk ice cream- just remember to freeze the cylinder of your ice cream maker first! {don't ask}
In a sauce pan mix together 2 cups 1/2 & 1/2, 1 package 1-layer-size chocolate cake mix and 1/2 cup sugar. Heat just until it bubbles. Remove from heat and whisk briskly. Cover and cool for 1 hour. Then whisk in 2    
 cups heavy cream and 1 tablespoon vanilla. Cover and pop in the fridge.
When it's chilled, pour into your ice cream maker and blend for about 25 minutes. The top picture shows the mixture after about 5 minutes, and the second picture shows it at 25 min- perfect!
Hold up- what happened to my font size?! Help! I'm shrinking!

Before you scoop the mixture into a freezer container, stir in 1/2 a bag of these yummy, minty chips. Now freeze until firm.

Now, its time to dig in!


That should cool you off!
