Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

peanut butter ice cream recipeA few weeks ago we decided to head downtown and see where the evening took us. It was a beautiful summer night. Not too hot with a slight breeze. We met some of our friends for dinner and afterward went to Freemont Park to play. To cap off our night we made a stop at the window at Hot Italian. Hot Italian is a super cute pizza place. They have Vespas everywhere and the best gelato around. They have a cannoli gelato that is my favorite but my husband ordered the peanut butter and for the first time ever I was a little envious of his gelato over mine. I woke up the next day and could not get the peanut butter gelato out of my head, hence how my Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Ice Cream was born.

The thing about peanut butter ice cream is that it is really easy to go overboard with the peanut butter. You do not want to be scraping peanut butter off of the roof of your mouth when you are eating some ice cream. This recipe has a good balance of peanut butter. It was an instant hit around my house. I do not like milkshakes, but I have been told that this ice cream makes a mean milk shake.

    I just got an ice cream maker now you are telling me I have to let it sit for 2 hours once it is done before I can eat it! That’s torture. Will magic shell work?? Ha ha, j/k!

    You are now officially my favorite food blogger not only do you love Steve & Cookies as do I (fellow Jersey Girl, Cape May County born and raised). But you make Peanut Butter Ice Cream, do you have any idea how hard it is to find good Peanut Butter Ice Cream, of course you do that’s why you’ve made it. πŸ™‚

    This ice cream looks WONDERFUL! What I like about peanut butter ice cream is that it doesn’t require egg yolks because of its viscosity. This recipe looks worthy of trying over and over again.

    How can you love ice cream and not like milkshakes?! This is an abomination.

    Well, not really. You’re allowed to like your hard ice cream I suppose. I’ve been a follower of your blog for a long time now (you take absolutely beautiful photos, by the way), but I recently received an ice cream maker of my very own and already had a few of your recipes bookmarked. I cannot tell you how excited I am about this endeavor–but now comes the hard part, which flavor to do first?? (PB+CC is obviously near the top of my list, as is your Coffee Toffee concoction) Have you made any recipes recently? With a little holiday inspiration perhaps?

    I just don’t. I like to chew my food. I don’t really like anything that you cannot bite. Yogurt, puddings, etc…
    You will love having an ice cream maker. I am thinking about some holiday flavors, don’t worry, ice cream will be represented.

    hi,

    It depends on your microwave, but 2 minutes?

    I love this. Thank you!

    After making a few batches of tasty but not-quite-right ice cream, I finally learned what I was doing wrong — thanks to your recipe here! I wasn’t letting the hot milk mixture cool all the way before dumping it into the ice cream maker; letting it chill in the fridge for several hours, as you suggested, instead of putting it into the ice cream maker after thirty minutes did the trick.

    Cooling the ice cream mix down makes a HUGE difference when it comes time to freeze. I am glad that it worked for you.

    This is the most delicious thing I have tasted, I made it using hot fudge sauce and chocolate covered pretzels and I re-posted it to my blog, linking it here. Thank you so much!
