peanut butter cup ice-cream

Gorgeous color and even better smell.  I am sure I won’t have any trouble with the girls tonight about finishing dinner, with such a sweet reward waiting.  I can already tell this will be a two recipe week, this won’t last long.

Peanut butter ice-cream with Reeces cups

  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup smooth natural peanut butter
  • 8 Reeses peanut butter cups, chopped into largish bites

Whisk the eggs until light and frothy. Add the sugar slowly, whisking constantly to incorporate. Add the whipping cream and milk and whisk until smooth. Pour 1 cup of the mixture into a separate bowl and add the peanut butter to that bowl. Mix well and pour peanut butter mixture into the cream mixture. Whisk in until fully incorporated.

Freeze mixture in your ice cream maker as per the manufacturer’s instructions. Two minutes before the ice cream is due to be done add the peanut butter cup pieces.

Spoon into a Tupperware or similar container and freeze until hard.

If you don’t have a machine –  I saw ice-cream makers on-sale at williams-sonoma online this week for a great price, which includes an extra freezer bowl.
