I love peanut butter


Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Peanut Butter Ice Cream

Mmmmm....

I really like the recipe for peanut butter ice cream in the Ben and Jerry's cookbook. It's easy, it's fast, and DELICIOUS!!! Bobby is a huge fan and so am I. He bought me a pack of six Reese's peanut butter hearts for Valentine's day- oh yeah baby, you know what I like- and suggested we try using it in an ice cream. I thought it was brilliant.

2 large eggs
3/4 cup sugar
2 cups whipping cream
1 cup milk
(I've been using 1 cup whipping cream, 1/2 cup half and half, and 1 1/2 cups whole milk to cut out some of the fat.)
1/3 cup peanut butter
4 Reese's Peanut Butter Holiday shapes* (trees, hearts, easter eggs, pumpkins), chopped into small pieces

Whisk the eggs and then add the sugar, whisking it in a little at a time. Whisk in cream and milk until blended well. Remove 1 cup of cream mixture and whisk with peanut butter until blended. Add peanut butter cream mixture back into the rest of the cream mixture and freeze in ice cream maker. About two minutes before the ice cream is done, add the chopped Reese's.

*You could most certainly use the standard Reese's cups in place of these holiday shapes but I would warn against simply because the holiday versions are fresh and soft and much more peanut buttery than the cups.

Love it too! Katherine, your blog is naughty :) I am on a diet.

Tara cracks me up. I knew there was something better about the PB cups--heart shaped. It made all the difference, I agree.

Anne said...

Yum, that looks so good.

Katherine! I just read your comment on my blog today, and yes, it's been awhile since I've checked or even posted something on my blog! I was excited to hear from you! It's been so long! I didn't know Bobby was doing med school. How are you holding up? Your girls are cute! How old is your youngest? I love your blog. I died laughing at your embarrassing moment. Too funny! It was good hearing from you! We'll keep in touch now through blogging. Isn't blogging great? (I know I need to be better at posting!)

I love this ice cream kick that you're on. If you ever feel like making some, but don't really want to eat it, I can take some off your hands... I am going to try this one for sure!

Katherine, it is a serious miracle that you are so thin. If I could cook like you...I would be...how do I say it...NOT THIN.
