No one will ever guess that this smooth and creamy mint treat is light. For the Christmas holidays, it's fun to substitute 2 cups of crushed peppermint candy canes for the chocolate chunks. Nancy Quelle - Cedar Rapids, Iowa

"I wish someone would tell me what I did wrong. We followed this recipe to the letter, and after TWO HOURS in our ice cream maker we still had just mint-green milk. I was a little worried about it as I poured the very liquidy mixture into the canister, wondering what exactly was going to firm it up. My hunch was correct. What a disappointment (on Father's Day!) and what a waste of ingredients."

"Wow, I don't call this a "skinny" recipe. It's got 289 calories per serving and a whopping 7 grams of fat, 4 of them saturated!"

"This ice cream may need to be in your freezer longer then four hours. The mint extract was very strong! Next time I will decrease it to 1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons or try 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract."
