Notes

Whipping the heavy whipping cream: Start with you mixer on medium speed and whip until the mixture begins to get fluffy. Once the mixture starts to fluff up, reduce the speed of the mixer and whip just until the mixture holds stiff peaks once when the beaters are lifted up. (see video demonstration if needed)
Chopping the cookies and chocolate: The cookies and chocolate should be chopped small since larger pieces will sink to the bottom. I like to use a mixture of super fine chops and small chops so the ice cream is speckled with bits of cookies and chocolate.
