  • 1 ½ cups creamy peanut butter, divided

  • ¼ cup coconut sugar

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil

  • 1 ½ teaspoons milk

  • 1 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • cup white sugar

  • 3 cups heavy whipping cream

  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


  1. Beat 1/2 cup peanut butter, coconut sugar, coconut oil, and milk together in a bowl until smooth; cover and place in refrigerator.

  2. Melt chocolate chips in top of a double boiler over simmering water, stirring frequently and scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching; stir in butter until smooth. Set chocolate mixture aside to cool to room temperature, about 10 minutes.

  3. Stir chocolate mixture into peanut butter mixture; cover and place in refrigerator.

  4. Beat remaining 1 cup peanut butter and white sugar together with an electric mixer until smooth; beat in cream until well combined. Stir vanilla extract into cream mixture; cover and refrigerate for 3 hours or up to overnight.

  5. Place cream mixture into the bowl of an ice cream maker; churn until soft-set and creamy, about 15 minutes. Chop chocolate mixture into pieces; mix about 1 cup chocolate mixture into ice cream.

  6. Sprinkle remaining pieces of chocolate mixture over ice cream to serve.

Cook's Note:

Substitute 1 cup whole milk plus 2 cups heavy whipping cream for the 3 cups heavy whipping cream for a lighter ice cream.

For a firm ice cream, transfer to an airtight container and place in freezer for at least 3 hours.
