Made it exactly as stated & it was terrible. I've tried at least 50 ice cream recipes from about 7 ice cream cookbooks & while some were better than others they were all tasty enough that they were gone in a day or two. nobody wanted to eat it. I just moved so I didn't want to dig out my cookbooks & came here for a recipe - almost 400 reviews & 5 stars, this had to be a winner! I'm sorry I didn’t read the reviews, I now see most of the people who loved this had made crucial changes. There are only a few ice cream base recipes - it’s actually the added ingredients for flavor that make the difference. The peppermint is too strong (used McCormick’s), rather than a smooth mint taste it’s more like eating frozen toothpaste. I thought the salt would be fine because I’ve used it in ice creams before, but this tasted salty, which is fine for a recipe like salted caramel, but in a mint ice cream it’s just awful. And those mini chocolate chips (used Nestle’s), they were a bit hard & weird tasting right after making the recipe, then after freezing they became really hard, like eating gross little pebbles. So rather than mint chocolate chip ice cream this was more like salty toothpaste with pebbles ice cream. Sorry, 1 star.
