Homemade Peanut Butter Ice Cream with Peanut Butter Cups

Homemade Peanut Butter Ice Cream with Peanut Butter Cups was the first organic ice cream that I have ever made. Thanks to Unreal Candy I can now make an ice cream that is just as good as what gets served up at Cold Stone Slab, but doesn’t come with any artificial flavors or colors. Unlike other ice creams this has no raw egg inside, so anyone can enjoy this frozen treat.

I am using a couple of different types of dairy products in here. I am using heavy cream. Heavy cream is also known as whipping cream and it can be known as industrial cream. Half and half also goes in this recipe. Half and Half is made from equal parts of heavy cream and whole milk. You can find this very often in most grocery stores. I am also using peanut butter, peanut butter cups, sugar, and some vanilla extract.

This recipe makes 1 quart. I am using a Whynter ice cream freezer. You will have ice cream in a little less than an hour. I have made many quarts of ice cream with this machine, it makes ice cream that is much like any premium ice cream you would enjoy. It’s definitely not required to use that exact model, but it works very well.

    Thank you for this excellent recipe. I used just 1/4 t. vanilla and added 1/8 t. fine salt and omitted the peanut butter cups. My Hamilton Beach ice cream maker took just 22 minutes which is about what all ice cream recipes take in it. I made an ice cream cake out of it using half a box of devil’s food cake mix. https://i.imgur.com/7ZDGYJq.jpg
