Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream


Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen
Rich chocolate and peanut butter ice cream with chocolate pieces throughout, this is the most decadent ice cream I have made yet. The smaller chocolate pieces were just the right amount of dark chocolate to mix into the ice cream. I haven't shared it with them yet, but I know my boys are going to flip over this ice cream. (Yes, it's been in my freezer for a few days now and yes, I've been enjoying it daily. There just hasn't been the right moment to share it yet. You do believe me, right?)

{photo updated 8/13/13: This is still one of our favorite ice creams. It tastes just like a smooth, creamy chocolate peanut butter cup!}

Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream
recipe inspired by Jen at My Tiny Oven
Yield: (6) 1/2 cup servings
(printable recipe)

1 cups heavy cream
1 cups whole milk
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened Dutch process cocoa powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
Optional: 1 cup mini chocolate chips or peanut butter cups, roughly chopped

In a large saucepan, combine everything except the peanut butter and the chocolate chips. Whisk to combine and then heat over medium heat, stirring continually, until it comes to a full boil. If you are impatient like me, increase the heat, but continue stirring non-stop.  Do not step away at this point.

When the mixture begins to foam, remove it from the heat and stir in the peanut butter. Whisk it together until it is fully incorporated. Cover and refrigerate at least 8 hours or up to two days.

Process according to your machine's instructions. When the ice cream is almost finished, stir in the chocolate pieces and transfer to a freezer-safe container. Enjoy!

  6. This is my family's favorite flavor! We buy Tillamook brand when it's on sale... can't afford it otherwise. Thanks for the recipe!

    *Sarah Plain and Tall was actually just one very small, simple book. It's likely you did read it when you were younger. The writers for Hallmark films would have had to have taken A LOT of liberty to make the story into 3 movies but they did a great job!

  11. Oh, there's nothing too wrong with saving it for yourself right?
    I just said to my husband yesterday, "I really think it'd be nice to get an ice cream maker", and now it is confirmed.

  14. i'm going to leave this recipe up so my husband can see it. If this isnt reason enough to get an ice cream maker, i don't know what is!

  15. Oh my, this would KILL me if it were in my freezer. I don't think I could stop at one bowl. This is my favorite ice cream flavor EVER!

  16. Oh my, this does look supremely wonderful and so perfectly summery. Looks gorgeously smooth...yummmm!

  17. Now, this ice cream would be safe from me, because I eat only straight chocolate - not chocolate foods. The real problem is that I'd have to make 2 or 3 batches just to have enough to feed my hungry horde! It sounds really promising!

  18. I'd like a pint of that right about now :)

    Also, just stumbled across your blog, and I love it/your philosophy-- it is similar to mine! I am a new follower.

  20. Lisa - I would try the simple freezer method first. I think it is easier that the ice cream ball. I have no idea how the ziploc method would work for this type of ice cream.

    Here is a how-to link on making it without the machine. I've made it this way and it does work. http://www.davidlebovitz.com/2007/07/making-ice-crea-1/

  23. You know I love that you read my older posts! I always read yours too but never leave comments - guess I'm afraid I'll look dumb showing up so late for the party! Love this recipe and can't wait until next summer to give it a try. I don't know why I have to wait until next summer - but guess we have enough goodies around the house this time of year! Have a great week.
