Weak. I was just nothing but weak when I sat down in front of a bowl of this chocolate peanut butter ice cream. I should’ve stopped eating it long before I did, but I couldn’t. Packed with chocolately flavor and peanut butter creaminess, this is seriously yummy ice cream. This is not diet ice cream, either. That’s probably why it’s sooooo good.
I love nuts in ice cream, but I did not use crunchy peanut butter when I made this. If you’re tempted to add nuts, do it after you’ve made the ice cream. Just fold it in. Roasted peanuts or chopped pecans are best.
