MiMi Rees' Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream - A Guest Post by MiMi


     The first time I made this ice cream earlier this summer, Pops and K.C. said it was my best homemade ice cream ever.  The texture on this one is unbelievably smooth and cream.  Unfortunately, I did not write down the recipe and was concerned about making it another time in case I didn't make it just the way I did that first time.  I was afraid I'd fail to live up to those standards.  


    When my parents were coming to town, I decided I wanted to make three different kinds of homemade ice cream for them to try.  Since this was such a success I decided to pull up my big girl panties and try it again.  SUCCESS.  This time I stirred in pieces of Reese's peanut butter cups.  See the note at the bottom of the recipe to find out how I made it that first time.  That is the way we like it best.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream

Ingredients:

3 eggs
1 1/4 cup cocoa powder
2 T chocolate syrup (optional)
3 cups whipping cream
1 1/2 cups milk
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
10 miniature Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, halved (optional)

You know the routine:

  1. Whip eggs.  Add sugar, then cocoa, then chocolate syrup a little at a time.
  2. Whisk in cream and milk.
  3. Freeze in ice cream maker. (MiMi loves her Kitchenaid ice cream maker attachment
  4. When done churning, swirl in peanut butter.  If using them, stir in peanut butter cups and freeze until ready to eat.

Note:  Another fun thing to do is put wax paper on a plate and put little bits of the peanut butter (about the size of a small gumball) onto it.  Stick the plate in the freezer while you make the ice cream.  Stir those peanut butter bits in during the last minute of churning.  I did not use the candy when I made it this way, but you surely could.
