My sweet husband celebrated his birthday on Sunday. When asked what he wanted for his birthday dessert he declared, “Oh, your pumpkin brownies! and mint chocolate chip ice cream.”
Done and done my love.
His all-time favorite ice cream is mint chocolate chip. Our local Coop carries the coconut version and a few months ago I finally made my own batch. And I kick myself for waiting so long. It’s soooo easy to make and absolutely delicious.
