"Reese Peanut Butter Cup" Ice Cream


One of our friends has been running a successful food blog for the last few years and every once in a while Jess is unfaithful and strays over there looking for sweets or healthier grub than I make. Here's the link: http://ediblelifeinyyc.blogspot.ca/
On her last trip she found a recipe for homemade Reese Bars. I guess Karma punished her for being a blog cheater because her bars turned out to be impossible to get out of the dish intact.


The only thing we could think of was to bust it up and make ice cream. Despite the unbelievably cold weather here we have both bundled up enough to eat a couple bowls of this and it may be the best ice cream we've made yet! It tastes like a Reese Peanut Butter Cup or a Butterfinger.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups of whipping cream
  • 3/4 cup sugar (you could probably drop this to 1/2 cup)
  • pinch of salt
  • 3/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 -3 cups Reese Bar (crumbled)
 Directions:

  1. Pour one cup of the cream into a sauce pan. 
  2. Add the sugar and salt.  
  3. Heat on medium heat until the sugar is dissolved (it will look almost clear).
  4. Remove from the heat and add the vanilla extract and remaining cream. 
  5. Chill in the refrigerator until ready to churn
  6. Churn the mixture for ten or 15 mins.
  7. Move it out of the ice cream maker and mix in the Reese Bars.
  8. Freeze until set.
