Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Made this for a pool party. Was so yummy that I will have to make it again!
Ingredients scaled for a 1 gallon ice cream freezer.  Best if made in advance and frozen overnight.

1 pint Half and Half
1 pint Whipping Cream
2 cups Sugar
1 teaspoon Salt
2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
2 Teaspoons Peppermint Extract
Green Food Coloring
2 cups Miniature Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips

Stir together half and half, whipping cream, sugar, salt, vanilla extract, peppermint extract.  Add green food coloring until the color desired is achieved. Pour into ice cream freezer.  Add milk to the fill line.  Place in refrigerator for at least 1 hour to chill.

Place into ice cream freezer and freeze according to manufacturer's directions.  About 10 minutes into freezing, add chocolate chips.  Continue freezing until thickened.  Spoon into separate container and freeze at least 3 hours.

If I have labeled a recipe as GlutenFree or Dairy Free but it appears to have those ingredients in it... that means the recipe is still delicious with substitutes/replacements. Ex: soy milk, lactose-free cheese, Bragg's liquid aminos (for soy sauce), all-purpose gluten free flour (Better Batter is my favorite), etc. Please check your individual ingredients to be sure they are GF or DF, if that is what you need.
