You can whip up this easy homemade ice cream in just minutes. Pop it into the freezer overnight to set up-you don't need an ice cream freezer! Chock-full of chips, this minty treat is the favorite of students in my home economics classes.

"This a great recipe and so easy. I cut back on the chocolate chips as 6 oz was too sweet for me."

"It is so nice to be able to make ice cream without an ice cream maker. I often use crushed oreos instead of the miniature chocolate chips, because they tend to get "waxy" frozen."
