::People's Choice:: Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream

The first time i made ice cream, i didnt need my ice cream maker. Seeing as how I plan on using it a lot this summer, i finally opened it and put it to good use.

You voted for Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream & BabyDaddy thanks all who voted -- this is one of his favorite flavor combos. And as an added treat, i added in some peanut butter cups -- another one of his faves.

Recipe from Perfect Scoop: Ice Creams, Sorbets, Granitas, and Sweet Accompaniments by David Lebovitz

2 cups half-and-half
¼ cup unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder
½ cup sugar
Pinch of salt
½ cup smooth peanut butter
add in: roughly chopped peanut butter cups

Whisk together the half-and-half, cocoa powder, sugar, and salt in a large saucepan. Heat the mixture, whisking frequently, until it comes to a full, rolling boil (it will start to foam up). Remove from the heat and whisk in the peanut butter, stirring until thoroughly blended.

Chill the mixture thoroughly, then freeze it in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

Fold the peanut butter cups into ice cream as you remove it from the machine.



BabyDaddy & I agree -- this has to be the richest chocolatey-peanut buttery ice cream we've ever had!!! This is a winner for all you chocolate peanut butter lovers!
