Peanut Butter Chip Ice Cream
Just once , try making this yourself !
No ice cream maker ?!
Heck ! Just use some elbow grease !
You'll be glad you did ......
One of the easiest ice cream recipe around ...
Okay , I'm always saying that , but hey ! ^__*
No eggs , guys ! lol
This recipe calls for half and half but I sub it for whole milk and cream .....
Eventhough the mixture was still slurry after being churned for an hour - more milk than cream , I guess - but no worries, as the mixture sets after 4 hours ....
This ice cream is smooth as silk and well , peanut buttery for lack of a better word ?! lol
So , if you LOVE peanut butter , this is for you !
3/4 cup smooth peanut butter
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoon sugar
2 2/3 cups half-and-half ( I used a generous 1 2/3 cups of milk and a scant cup of cream )
pinch of coarse salt
dash of vanilla
1 heaping cup of Reese's peanut butter cup , frozen and chopped , optional ( I used peanut butter chips )
* Combine all ingredients above except the candy in a food processor or blender ; process until smooth ; chill the mixture thoroughly in the fridge .
* Churn mixture in the ice cream maker according to the manufacturer's instruction ; I added the chips after the last 2-3 minutes of churning ; transfer mixture in a container and freeze for at least 4 hours or overnight .
