I feel like the summer got away from me in terms of the blog and recipes. I should be rolling out pumpkin, but I’m still dreaming about garden veggies and this amazing homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream. It’s still summer and plenty warm here in Southern Utah, so I thought I’d go ahead and post this recipe for you to enjoy. I’ve been making this ice cream for a few years now and it’s one of our favorites! It’s rich and smooth and that chocolate peanut butter combo is always a delicious classic.

This is the perfect easy recipe to celebrate a long weekend with! Don’t put summer away until you’ve tried this one, friends. You won’t regret it.

Doesn’t that look amazing! I made this chocolate peanut butter ice cream for my daughter’s birthday a while ago. Now I’m thinking I’m going to have to make another batch soon… the peril of editing all those pictures! They made me hungry.

Tips and Tricks for Making Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream

  • Thomas bought me this ice cream maker a few years ago and we LOVE IT! You freeze the bowl so there’s no ice or salt to mess with and it churns the ice cream really quickly. When our kids get a little older and their appetites increase, I’m going to need to buy a second one.
  • This ice cream is delicious frozen in between two of my famous homemade chocolate chips cookies (best chocolate chip cookies ever!).

What can I sub for unsweetened chocolate?

Good semi-sweet chocolate chips work well in place of the unsweetened chocolate if you don’t have any on hand.

How long should I freeze ice cream before serving?

If you like a harder ice cream, put the ice cream in a freezer container and cover. Let it freeze for at least 2 hours before serving. The ice cream straight out of the maker is just like soft-serve. Out of the freezer it is like store-bought.

Description

This easy Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream is made with cream, peanut butter, and two kinds of chocolate. It’s a great homemade ice cream recipe you’ll want to make all summer long!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups milk (whole is best)
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 oz. unsweetened chocolate (I like Ghiradelli), cut into small pieces
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter

Instructions

  1. In a medium pan whisk together the cocoa powder and sugar. While whisking add the milk and the cream. Whisk together well combined. Place the pan over medium to medium-high heat. When the milk mixture starts to steam (but isn’t boiling) add the chocolate and whisk until the chocolate melts. Remove from the head and add the vanilla and peanut butter and stir until well combined. Place the ice cream mixture in a container, cover, and refrigerate until cool (about 4 hours or overnight).
  2. Pour the ice cream mixture in your ice cream maker and process according to manufacturer’s instructions.
  3. I use a Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker that you just freeze the canister the ice cream is made in. It takes about 15 minutes to make ice cream with no salt and ice to mess with. I love it! If you like a harder ice cream, put the ice cream in a freezer container and cover. Let it freeze for at least 2 hours before serving. The ice cream straight out of the maker is just like soft-serve. Out of the freezer it is like store-bought.

I made this recipe and it came out really grainy. Super disappointed. Flavour was good but texture was disgusting.

How many quarts does this make. My ice cream make makes 6 quarts and I need to know how to adjust the recipe.

This ice cream…oh my! I’m addicted! So chocolatey and so peanut buttery (yes, those are both legit words!) Delicious! Thank you!

Literally, Gary just fixed himself a bowl of chocolate ice cream with a huge spoonful of peanut butter! He would love this! Now, I’m in need of an ice cream maker!

We just tried making this recipe and ran into a problem. After combining all the ingredients and adding to the ice cream maker, we let our mixer run for awhile. I think the mixture was still too hot and melted the cooling element in the mixing bowl. Did you let the mixture cool before adding to the ice cream maker or did you add it straight from the stove top?
