Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream

Is there anyone out there who doesn’t like the combination of chocolate and peanut butter? I certainly hope not! Chocolate and peanut butter is one of my favorite pairings.  I know in some cultures peanut butter and chocolate is not a natural pairing. So, on the off chance that you have never had chocolate + peanut butter together give it a try right away. You will not regret it. Of all the chocolate and peanut butter candy out there, I would say that Reese’s peanut butter cups are probably the most popular. How could you ever make Reese’s better though? Chocolate and peanut butter ice cream, that’s how!

We just got our ice cream maker a few months ago. Unfortunately, not every ice cream recipe we have made has been a success. This was by the far the easiest, most foolproof ice cream recipe we have made yet. This recipe does not call for eggs so we did not need to worry about scrambled egg ice cream, thankfully! Even though it was super easy, it tasted just as good as the chocolate and peanut butter ice cream I get at our local ice cream store. It tasted extra good in this summer heat too. Who wants a melty Reese’s peanut butter cup when you can have icy, creamy, chocolate and peanut butter ice cream?

Here is what you'll need. Plus an ice cream maker, of course.

Add the half & half to the pot. Use a bigger pot than I did.

Add the sugar

Add the cocoa powder

And a pinch of salt

Bring to a boil

Transfer to a bowl

Add the peanut butter

Mix it. It is ok to leave some small clumps.

Cover and let chill in the refrigerator

Transfer to the ice cream maker

I let it mix for 15 minutes

Transer again. Lick the beater.

Chocolate + peanut butter + ice cream = perfection

    OH my gosh–that looks amazing! If only more people in my house ate chocolate peanut butter ice cream! I would eat it ALL myself.

    Wow! Your pictures are so great! Really makes this look doable for me! I want to try this very soon. Chocolate and peanut butter ice cream is great but this way is probably 10 better than I have ever had it!
