TIP OF THE DAY: Make Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

July is National Ice Cream Month, and we’re devoting ourselves to one huge celebration.

We love chocolate chip ice cream, so we’re fortunate that it’s so easy to find vanilla chip, mint chip and chocolate chocolate chip flavors.

But what if you want coffee chocolate chip ice cream? Strawberry chocolate chip? Cherry chocolate chip? Peanut butter chocolate chip?

You can convert any flavor of ice cream into “chocolate chip” ice cream by stirring in chocolate chips.

Soften a pint of ice cream on the counter, enough to stir in the chips; return to the freezer to harden. Or simply sprinkle the chips underneath and on top of a scoop of ice cream.

Make your ice cream even more interesting by chopping up flavored chocolate bars to substitute for chocolate chips.

  • Green & Black’s makes chocolate bars flavored with butterscotch, cherry, ginger and mint, among other flavors.
  • Vosges Haut Chocolat has edgier chocolate bar flavors. A sampling: Barcelona (hickory smoked almonds and fleur de sel), Black Salt Caramel, Blood Orange Caramel, Mo’s Bacon Bar and Red Fire (ancho & chipotle chilies and cinnamon dark chocolate).
  •  
    You can apply the same technique to make cookie ice cream and toffee ice cream.
