When me and DH went to college, there was an ice cream place that made ice cream on site because of all the agricultural student stuff they had going around the county.  Their most popular school flavor was Aggie Blue Mint and was a fun date night for us as starving college students.  Aggie Blue Mint is peppermint flavored ice cream, with white chocolate chunks and Oreo bits, and colored blue for the school. Ive tried to recreate it here and DH loved it!




Blue Mint Ice Cream

2 cups milk
3 eggs
1 cup sugar

2 cups whole whipping cream
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp peppermint extract (or to taste, I started with 1/4 and kept adding until I thought the flavor was strong enough)
Blue food coloring to taste

cup white chocolate chips
6 Oreo cookies, broken into pieces

Beat eggs with sugar until light and fluffy, then mix in milk until well combined.  Cook on stovetop over medium low heat.  Stir constantly until mixture thickens enough to coat the spoon, about ten minutes but dont let it come to a boil.  Strain through mesh strainer and then set mixture in fridge for 8 hours.


When ready to make ice cream, pull mix out of fridge and add whipped cream, extracts and coloring.  Stir well.  Pour into ice cream maker for about 15 minutes.  After the 15 minutes pour white chocolate chips and broken Oreos into ice cream maker.  Allow ice cream maker to continue to process for 5-10 more minutes. 


Scoop out ice cream and serve right away for a soft frosting consistency.  Or place in a container and let harden until desired texture.  Can be made days ahead of serving time.






Yum!

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

GORGEOUS! And I love the story to go with it, too. No wonder it was a hit! We have an ice cream maker and I'm wondering about your cute storage container; did it come with your maker or can you share where you did get it, please?

I got it from a surplus supply shop a few years back.  The company on the container is "Elements by Tovolo."  It is the 1 quart size.
 There are some Tovolo containers on amazon, but the pictures don't show the cute label this one has, if that matters to you.

This looks sooooo good! I have an ice cream maker attachment for my KitchenAid that needs to get more use, this would be perfect!
