Guess what I pulled out of the storage room? Yep, my handy, dandy, cuisinart ice cream maker. It's that time of the year when you don't want to heat up the house by turning on the oven but you still want something delicious and impressive to serve guests for dessert. Everyone loves ice cream and I have been know to buy premade ice cream and Sander Hot Fudge. (Which is, without a doubt, the best Hot Fudge in the entire world. Just my opinion but try it and see if you don't agree with me.) But serving store bought, no matter how good, is just not the same as serving something that was made with love as one of the ingredients.
This recipe is straight from the little booklet that came with the ice cream maker and it is a keeper. Especially if you are a Resee's Addict like me.
Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream
Very slightly adapted from Cuisinart
1 1/3 c. good quality peanut butter (not natural)
3/4 c. sugar
1 2/3 c. whole milk
2 1/4 c. heavy cream
1 1/2 t. vanilla extract
1/2 of an 8 oz bag of Resees minis
In med bowl of stand mixer affixed with paddle attachment, combine peanut butter and sugar at low speed until smooth. Add the milk and continue to mix on low speed until sugar is dissolved, 1-2 minutes. Stir in the heavy cream and vanilla. Cover and refrigerate over night.
Pour mixture into an ice cream maker following manufacturers directions. Five minutes before mixing is complete add the Resees Minis and let mix in completely.
The ice cream will have a cream texture. If firmer ice cream is desired transfer the ice cream to an airtight container and freeze for at least 2 hrs. Remove from freezer 15 minutes before serving. Print Recipe
