Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream

This recipe is DELICIOUS!!! Run to your ice cream maker right now and make this immediately! It is hard to believe that with only about 10 minutes of prep and a good amount of patience (waiting for the mixture to get cold enough for the ice cream maker!) you can have what tastes like a peanut butter cup with the volume turned way up!

This recipe came from Annie's Eats, which is a wonderful blog that I drooled over! I feel like I marked about a million recipes from this site to try - if you haven't checked it out yet, set aside a couple of hours and take a look thru the beautiful pictures and yummy recipes! She got this recipe from The Perfect Scoop by David Lebovitz.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream

2 cups half and half
1/4 cup Dutch Process Cocoa Powder
1/2 cup sugar
Pinch of Salt
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

Whisk together half & half, cocoa, sugar and salt in a small saucepan. Heat mixture, whisking frequently. (Take my advise and DO NOT leave for a moment to get some water, and watch the ice dancers on tv! My mixture bubbled over and left me with a big mess to clean up!). Mixture will come to a rolling boil. Remove from heat and whisk in peanut butter until completely combined. Chill mixture. (This is what takes A LOT of patience!)

Process as directed per your ice cream maker and enjoy!
