These Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Bars hit that dessert craving in just the right spot. With mint and chocolate, you can never go wrong.
My kids loved these. They know they are healthy so they think they should be allowed to eat as many as they want, whenever they want. Like, for breakfast. I quickly vetoed that idea.
These mint chocolate chip ice cream bars have the perfect blend of icy and creamy. Just enough cream to make them a little more of an ice cream bar than an ice pop but still be in the fuel pull range for my Trim Healthy Mama ladies.
Do I need to use food coloring?
No. You can omit it if you want. And don't mind the shocking green of my ice pops. After a few drops of food coloring, I thought they should look a little more green. So I added a few more drops and then realized my green was actually NEON green. No amount of photo editing could make them look the nice green I was envisioning.
How many Ice Cream Bars does this make?
I made 10 in this mold and a few more in another mold. You are welcome to half this recipe for a smaller ice pop mold.
