Martha, your fans at love this recipe- but for Passover we believe that kosher for Passover mint chip ice cream is unavailable - so here's a Passover tweak- Use vanilla ice cream instead, and mix in the optional addition of chocolate chips. Garnish some fresh mint leaves, How beautiful! And, for everyday, non-Passover version - graham crackers can be used instead of matzoh.
