Homemade Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream (with lots of chocolate chunks!)
Below is the recipe and a few pics (b/c it's always nice to actually see what you're making!) So to all those who want to take a spoon to this goodness, here ya go...
peanut butter cup ice cream
1 cup good quality peanut butter
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 cup whole milk
2 cups heavy cream
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1 cup (or maybe throw in an extra 1/2 cup if you dig that sort of thing) chopped peanut butter cup candies. This ends up being about 20 mini peanut butter cups.
In a medium mixing bowl, use a hand mixer on low to combine peanut butter and sugar until smooth. Add the milk and mix on low until sugar is dissolved. Stir in heavy cream and vanilla. Cover and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours, or overnight.
Turn on your ice-cream maker...we used the THIS one. Pour the mixture into freezer bowl and let mix until thickened, about 15-20 minutes. Five minutes before mixing is complete add shopped candy. The ice-cream will have a soft, creamy texture. If you want a firmer consistency transfer it to a airtight container and put in the freezer for about 2 hours.
