Peanut Butter Chocolate Ice Cream



I have been catching some heat for the amount of fried and unhealthy food I been posting; the problem is that I really haven't been cooking anything else. The best I can do is try to cool it down with some ice cream.

We have made this Peanut Butter Chocolate Ice Cream a few times and are in love with it's creamy texture and the, always wonderful, mix of peanut butter and chocolate.

We took the recipe from "The Perfect Scoop" by David Lebovitz and didn't change a thing. We have amped it up a bit by throwing some mini peanut butter cups and a few other things.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups half and half
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
Directions:

  1. Whisk the half and half, cocoa, sugar and salt in a sauce pan.
  2. Heat until it boils.
  3. Remove from heat and mix in the peanut butter.
  4. Chill completely then fire into the ice cream maker.
We mixed some mini chocolate covered pretzels and it was pretty much the best bowl of ice cream I've had.
