8 servings
Prep time: 
1.5 hours (plus chilling, processing and freezing)
Cooking time: 


  • 1 cup Horizon whole milk
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 cups Horizon heavy cream
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 cups packed fresh mint leaves
  • 5 large Horizon egg yolks
  • 1 cup chocolate chips 


In medium saucepan on medium heat, warm milk, sugar, 1 cup heavy cream, salt and mint. Once mixture is steaming, remove from heat. Cover and let stand for one hour to infuse the mint flavor.

Strain out mint, pressing on the strainer to get out as much mint flavor and color as possible. Discard mint.

Pour remaining heavy cream into a large bowl and set aside.

Rewarm the infused milk. In a separate bowl, whisk together egg yolks, then slowly pour some of the warm mint mixture into the yolks, whisking constantly. Scrape warmed yolks back into saucepan.
