Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream

I figure since we are on a chocolate peanut butter kick I might as well add another one to your list.

This ice cream was absolutely divine.  I took one bite and was speechless.  I couldn't even find the words to describe the masterpiece I was eating.
It all started with this lovely cookbook the hubs got for Christmas (the only way I got away with that was because it's all about his favorite dessert in the world--ice cream).  This cookbook was AHHHHMAZING!  I spent several hours on Christmas reading it from cover to cover and thoroughly enjoyed myself.

He shares some of the most amazing recipes and I would have to say, some of the weirdest combinations.  For instance, I don't know if we are ever going to try olive oil ice cream or green pea ice cream.  He also has perfectly normal combinations that we have tried and loved, like vanilla
(coming soon) and plain old chocolate that will also knock your socks off.

So if you want to become addicted to ice cream, I suggest you buy this book, and no I haven't been paid to say any of this (just in case you were wondering--the ice cream is just that good).

Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream

(click here for printable version)

1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 cup whole milk
1/3 cup unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder
1/2 cup sugar
Pinch of salt
1/3 cup smooth peanut butter

Note: This ice cream needs time to chill so be sure to factor that into your preparation time.

1.  Whisk together the whipping cream, milk, cocoa powder, sugar, and salt in medium sauce-pan.  Heat mixture over medium heat, whisking constantly, until it comes to a full, roiling boil (it should start to foam up).  Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter, stirring until thoroughly blended.

2.  Chill the mixture thoroughly (at least 3-4 hours), then freeze in your ice cream maker according to manufacturer's instructions.  

Note:  This ice cream freezes fantastically, in case you have any left over :).

Makes about 1 quart

Yum! I have The Perfect Scoop and will be pulling it out to find this recipe!

Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams has some way out combinations too and her process for making ice cream is different than any other I've tried but is fantastic.

I bought his book a couple of years ago, and I've now made his custard base as my go-to recipe. I made his salted caramel ice cream, which rendered me speechless. I can eat ice cream year-round. I'll have to bookmark this one, along with the other dozen or so I have yet to make. Nice jb!

This looks scandalously delicious! I have no doubt you were entertained reading Mr. Lebovitz's cookbook...I found a stollen recipe on his blog and lost myself in both the fun of cooking and reading (and the stollen was amazing, btw). Very cool

Chocolate peanut butter ice cream - that's sounds heavenly. I had some homemade ice cream at a friend's house tonight and I've decided I need an ice cream maker, pronto.
