Mint Chocolate Ice Cream

Made with fresh mint and chocolate chunks, this creamy frozen treat is a classic.


  • 1 bunch fresh mint, torn by hand
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 cup whipped cream
  • 5 tablespoons mint liqueur
  • 7 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 3 1/2 ounces semisweet chocolate, melted (for dipping the cones)
  • Ice cream cones


  1. In a saucepan, boil mint with 2 cups of water and reduce by half. Strain, return the liquid to the pan and add the sugar. Allow to boil until it becomes a light syrup. Set aside.
  2. In a bowl, whisk the egg whites, and gradually add the mint syrup until it becomes a meringue. Set aside.
  3. Add whipped cream to a bowl, and gently stir in the mint meringue. Add the mint liqueur and chopped chocolate, mix, and place in freezer for 6 hours.
  4. Dip the tops of the ice cream cones in the melted chocolate, allow to drip a moment, fill with ice cream and serve.
