Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Chocolate Chip Ice Cream is the ice cream recipe I make the most. It is my granddaughters favorite ice cream. I make it just like my vanilla ice cream except I add milk chocolate chocolate chips. My grandson prefers vanilla ice cream over the chocolate chip ice cream so what I do is make vanilla ice cream for him and let my granddaughter add the chocolate chips just to her bowl… situation! I bought a big bag of mini milk chocolate chocolate chips from Amish Country. They are so much cheaper and they are delicious. I make this recipe in my Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker which I love. However, you do not need an ice cream maker to make ice cream. It is creamier in the ice cream maker than when you mix it by hand but it will taste the same. To make it by hand, once you mix all of the ice cream ingredients together, let it cool in the pan on a tray of ice. Once cool place it in the refrigerator, covered, for about 4-6 hours. Stir it and pour it into a covered freezer container. Place it in the freezer. Stir every 30 minutes. The outside edges will start to freeze first. You want to mix the frozen edges back into the liquid. Continue until all of the liquid has frozen. Stir as well as you can to make it creamy. Once it is set to a soft serve type of ice cream, you can stop stirring. Freeze another 4-6 hours and serve with your favorite topping.
