I love peanut butter. I had to have eaten a gallon of it while pregnant with all of my kids, and so the love of all things peanut and chocolate were passed on from birth until today! Enter this deliciousness!
I posted recently my No-Cook Vanilla Ice cream, which we all love. Once you have down the process of making ice cream, it is almost too easy to make! So easy, that my kids love helping at any chance and giving me their 2-cent version of recipe ideas on things to add to make the ice cream better for next time!
No-Cook Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream
Adapted from the Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker Recipe book, for Peanut Butter Ice Cream.
1 cup peanut butter (the smooth, regular, made with sugar kind)
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup sugar
1 cup milk (regular or low-fat)
2 cups cream (light or heavy)
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup of chopped peanut butter cups (about 8 regular sized)
Using a hand mixer or whisk, beat the peanut butter and sugars until combined. You may need to scrape down the sides.
Add the milk and mix again until all the sugar is dissolved.
Add the cream and vanilla and stir by hand until combined.
Cover this mixture and refrigerate for at least 3 hours or overnight is really the best.
Add the mixture to your ice cream maker and process according to the directions. For me it takes about 25-35 minutes until it resembles soft-serve. At that point add the chopped peanut butter cups and let is swirl around for another minute.
Remove the mixture from the machine and freeze (if you can stand it!) for 1-2 hours to firm up.
When you are ready to serve, let it sit out for 20 minutes until it is soft but not melted.
This is my kids’ favorite. Honestly. It kills me to make it with the cream, but it is so much better this way. The ingredients are so honest, and not all that weirdo ice-cream stuff that makes it fluffy and non-caloric. No thanks. Give me my cream and sugar please and leave me the heck alone with my peanut butter and chocolate! Love this. And you will too.
