Introduction: Peanut Butter Chocolate Explosion Ice Cream
We recently bought an ice cream maker. I was really excited when we got it and really wanted to use it! But you know what happens when you go on Pinterest to look for ideas.... I spent about an hour looking for a recipe that I liked, and finally I just decided to do one myself, so here it is. This ice cream recipe is very rich in peanut butter flavor and has a lot of chocolate chips as well as some Nutella (gotta have some health in there somewhere) and is quite easy to make! I hope you enjoy!
Step 1: Supplies
- 500ml of half and half cream
- 250ml of heavy cream
- Peanut butter
- Chocolate chips
Other things you will need:
- Ice cream maker
- Measuring cups
- Measuring spoons
- Big bowl
- Other container to store ice cream in (not in picture)
Step 2: Making the Mixture
First we need to make the mixture that will later turn into ice cream!
Here's the recipe:
- 2 cups (or just a 500ml carton) half and half cream
- 1 cup (or just a 250ml carton) heavy cream
- 1/3 cup white sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Tiny pinch of salt
Once it's all added, mix until everything is dissolved.
In case you're wondering, the peanut butter, nutella and chocolate chips will be added later.
Step 3: Turning It Into Ice Cream
Once your mixture is ready, pour it into your ice cream maker. Make sure that your frozen canister is completely frozen. I even froze mine a couple days before, just to be sure. Now turn on the machine and set a timer for 10 minutes. If your mixture doesn't look like the last two pictures after 10 minutes, then do it for another 10 but watch it so that it doesn't freeze too much.
Step 4: Adding the Yummy Stuff!
After the ice cream mixture is the right consistency, it's time to add the yummy stuff! You will need to add:
- 1/3 cup of peanut butter
- 1/3 cup of nutella (yes, I know it's not a full 1/3 cup, I didn't realize that we had so little of it)
- 1/3 cup of chocolate chips
Add all of that into the mixture and stir with a long spoon to mix it in thoroughly, then turn the machine back on and set the timer for another 10 minutes.
Step 5: Finishing Up
Once your 10 minutes are up, turn the machine off and scrape the ice cream off the mixer part . Then carefully transfer the ice cream into a separate container and place it in your freezer for a couple hours, just to really harden it, unless you want it soft.
Step 6: Done!
Once it has been in the freezer for a while, scoop it out into bowls and serve! I really hope you enjoyed my instructable. If you did, please vote for me in the "Frozen Treats" contest, also favorite and comment, I'd really like to hear your feedback! Thanks!
