To Die For Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream

Rated as 4 out of 5 Stars

"I couldn't find any recipes for chocolate peanut butter ice cream on this site, so I made one up. This is amazingly delicious--trust me on this. After tasting this, you'll have a difficult time justifying a store bought ice cream purchase. You can leave out the peanut butter and have heavenly double chocolate ice cream, yum! If you like your ice cream on the sweeter side, you can add an additional 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup of sugar. Personally, I think the ice cream is sweet enough with 1/2 cup."

  1. Stir whole milk, heavy cream, sugar, and cocoa powder together in a saucepan over low heat; cook, stirring, until sugar and cocoa powder have dissolved, about 5 minutes.
  2. Beat egg yolks in a bowl with an electric mixer until thick and pale yellow, about 4 minutes. Stir about 1/2 cup of cocoa mixture into egg yolks, whisking constantly.
  3. Pour egg yolk mixture into cocoa mixture; cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon, about 5 minutes. Pour cocoa mixture into a bowl.
  4. Place chocolate chips in a large microwave-safe bowl; heat in microwave in 20 second intervals until warm, stirring until chocolate chips are melted. Stir chocolate chips and vanilla extract into cocoa mixture just until combined; refrigerate until cold, about 2 hours.
  5. Freeze chocolate mixture in ice cream maker according to manufacturer's instructions. Drop peanut butter by spoonfuls into ice cream; using a knife, fold peanut butter through ice cream to form ribbons of peanut butter throughout.

The custard wouldn’t thicken up for me very well so I added another egg yolk and then it did. I didn’t have semi-sweet chocolate chips so I used milk chocolate ones. I think it turned out great,...
