Mint Oreo Ice Cream

For Christmas, I was gifted a nice gift certificate for Williams-Sonoma.  When I got to the store the day after Christmas, I found this little gem...
... in the window.  It called to me.  I had no intention of getting this but I am glad I did. It's a fun little splurge.

The first recipe we tried...
Mint Oreo... you can't go wrong with that.
It was GOOD!
Here is the recipe:  Mint Ice Cream -  Recipe link is HERE on one of my favorite blogs called Cookie Madness.  This recipe is very good; it is also very rich.
I have made this recipe two times now.  In both instances, I added a small tub of Mini-Oreo cookies instead of chocolate chunks or chips (I can't be trusted with big packages of Oreos).  I find these little tubs of Oreos for $1.00 at the grocery store.  I also added a few drops of green food coloring at my son's request.  My second attempt at ice cream in my machine was even better than the first since I am adjusting to using the machine.  The ice cream maker came with two water filled bowls that must be frozen in the freezer for about 16 hours before making ice cream.
