This is one of the easiest desserts I am ever going to share with you. You put some milk chocolate chips, peanut butter, syrup, and cream in a saucepan. Then you melt it. Stir. Pour the milk chocolate peanut butter sauce over some ice cream (I like vanilla, but chocolate is good too) and sprinkle some salty peanuts on top of that. Done. I can do that, and I think that you have it in you too. Sweet and salty is my downfall. I like to make this for dessert when people are expecting something really elegant and fancy. Nothing makes people happier than a simple sundae. It reminds them of warm summer days, childhood, and good times.
I am headed to New Jersey tomorrow to celebrate my little sister’s graduation from the Culinary Institute of America. We are so proud of her. She is moving to the Big Apple and frankly, I am a little jealous. She has a doorman. If you happen to be in New York City, stop into Lincoln and tell her that you love my blog. She won’t think that it is funny, but I will!
This recipe comes from my Nigella Quick Collection app for my iphone.
3/4 cup cream
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
3 Tablespoons corn syrup
Put all of the ingredients in a saucepan.
Put the saucepan over medium heat and cook until it all melts together. I told you that you had it in you.
Put the sauce in a jar until you are ready to use it. When I make this for a party, I get my ice cream scooped and in bowls and keep them in the freezer until I am ready to serve it. Warm the sauce in the microwave for a few seconds.
Pour the warm sauce over the ice cream. Sprinkle some peanuts on top. Swoon.
Please tell your thighs that I said that I am sorry. It is hard to stop. Not that I would know of course.
