Tastetester Comments: My sister-in-law Joanne said she loved the combination of mint and berry, and of course the big hunks of frozen chocolate. Mint Raspberry with a Chocolate Swirl 1 cup whole milk 1 cup heavy cream 1 cup half & half 1 cup sugar 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 teaspoon peppermint extract green food coloring 2 cups fresh raspberries 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate 1 tablespoon butter Combine milk, heavy cream, half & half, sugar, and salt in a 3-quart pot. Heat over low heat until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and add in vanilla, peppermint, and green food coloring (to reach desired color). Refrigerate until thoroughly chilled. Pour mixture into an ice cream freezer and freeze according to manufacturer's instructions. Meanwhile, melt chocolate and butter in the microwave until chocolate is completely melted. Stir to combine. When ice cream reaches desired consistency add in raspberries. Then pour in melted chocolate and continue to freeze for 15 seconds. The chocolate will immediately harden creating big pieces of frozen chocolate swirled throughout the ice cream. Spoon ice cream into a container and freeze for several hours.
