Ice Cream Attempt 2- DELICIOUS

Ice Cream Attempt #2= AMAZING! 

Ice Cream attempt #1 was a failure. Second time around, different flavors, it was AWESOME! I wanted to make chocolate and peanut butter together, so I decided to combine them, but I didn't have a recipe. I took ingredients from both and hoped it turned out ok. AND IT DID!!!!

Here is the recipe. Try it. You will not be disappointed. It still needs a name though! You will need an ice cream machine. Mine is a Cuisinart. 

mix cocoa, peanut butter, sugar

Add milk, vanilla, heavy cream

Put in machine for 25-35 minutes

Add chopped peanut butter cups last 5 minutes 

All done & delicious!


  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (Dutch process preferred)
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cups peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1-1/2 cups whole milk
  • 3-1/4 cups heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 4 Peanut Butter Cups, chopped


Place the cocoa, peanut butter and sugars in a medium bowl; stir to combine. Add the whole milk and use a hand mixer on low speed or whisk to combine until the cocoa and sugars are dissolved, about 1 to 2 minutes. 

Stir in the heavy cream and vanilla. If not freezing immediately, cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

Turn machine on; pour mixture into freezer bowl, and let mix until thickened, about 25 to 35 minutes. 

Put chopped peanut butter cups in the last 5 minutes.

The ice cream will have a soft, creamy texture. If a firmer consistency is desired, transfer the ice cream to an airtight container and place in freezer for about 2 hours. Remove from freezer about 15 minutes before serving.
