Cool Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

I love making cool summer treats! And this classic Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream is so refreshing & simple to make...It's a cool keeper! 
2 cups half & half
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 cup sugar
good pinch of salt 
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp peppermint extract
2-3 drops green food coloring (optional)
1 cup miniature chocolate chips

In a large bowl combine all ingredients except chocolate chips. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Pour mixture into an ice cream maker following manufacturers directions. After about 10 minutes add chocolate chips. Once it;s finished churning in ice cream maker (mine took about 18 minutes) put into a covered container and firm up in freezer to harden more. (about 2 hrs)
