When it comes to ice cream, are you a purist? Do you like smooth, creamy, plain vanilla or chocolate ice cream? Or do you like your ice cream full of chunks and swirls and magic? I am totally in the chunky camp. The more mix-ins, the better. Ice cream is essentially just a vehicle for consuming cookies and candy and nuts, oh my!
It’s Secret Recipe Club time again! Members of the Secret Recipe Club are assigned a blog each month. Who has who is a secret until reveal day (today!). The mission is to choose a recipe from the assigned blog, make it, and share it!
This month, I was assigned food.baby.life, written by Susan who is an Australian mom, business woman and great baker! Susan’s blog has some savory dishes on it (Creamy Prawn Curry sounded delicious), but the majority consists of mouthwatering desserts and sweets. I was drooling over her Almond Cheesecake and French Apple Tart.
Susan’s recipe was all in Aussie-talk with grams and milliliters and all those confusing things. I partly Googled and partly winged it to convert the measurements. I’m not really sure how close it was, but it worked out just fine! I also added peanut butter cups and Nutter Butters since I’m a chunky ice cream kinda girl.
Triple Peanut Butter Ice Cream
(adapted from food.baby.life)
- 3/4 cup smooth peanut butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 1/3 cups whole milk
- 1 1/3 cups heavy whipping cream
- Pinch salt
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup chopped peanut butter cookies
- 1 cup chopped peanut butter cups
Combine peanut butter, sugar, milk, cream, salt and vanilla in a food processor or blender. Blend until completely smooth. Chill at least 8 hours or overnight.
When fully chilled, pour into ice cream maker and churn according to ice cream maker’s instructions. Add the chopped cookies and peanut butter cups in the last 2 minutes of churning. Transfer to an airtight container and freeze until ready to serve.
This ice cream was amazing. Creamy, peanut buttery and delicious. So delicious, in fact, that I will probably be making another batch with my leftover ingredients ASAP. Love.
