Then, instead of the usual dark chocolate flakes we crumbled Newman's Own mint chocolate sandwich cookies into the ice cream base as it finished freezing. We didn't cook the egg yolks quite right so this wasn't as creamy as it should have been, but frankly that didn't stop friends and family from eating it all up.
Our other project was a frozen yogurt. We have had some unpleasant experiences with homemade frozen yogurt but we have a new secret ingredient that really helped this batch. We'll give you the recipe for that shortly.
Until then, here's the original recipe for mint ice cream we ran last year. Sweet and fragrant, it's much more delicate and delicious than commercial mint ice cream.
