I swear this is the last peanut butter dessert I’ll post for a long, long, time, unless of course PB Crave sends me more delicious peanut butter (hint hint). This stuff is addictive. I may have to change the name of this blog to “the obsessive baker.” I guess I’m just a theme oriented person. For instance, last year I posted an entire year of pies. Then I got hooked on peanut butter. OK, and chocolate. I sense lemon is coming around again as a weekly feature. See what I mean?
But this ice cream is not my fault. I would have never thought to combine tasty PB Crave Peanut Butter in a creamy cold ice cream with homemade chopped Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups blended in. Sarah Pember, my blog daughter, planted this idea in my head. And I just happened to have peanut butter cups in my freezer waiting for an opportunity to participate in a heavenly creation.
So enough about this fantastic ice cream. I bet you want to know who won the PB Crave CoCo Banana Variety Pack? I wish everybody could get a jar of their delicious peanut butter, but today we only have one winner – Congratulations commentor No. 42 – Sandy @ Chatty Crone!!!! I know you will enjoy this all natural uniquely flavored peanut butter. Enjoy!
Hopefully PB Crave will be on the shelves soon.
Until then please feel free to substitute your favorite peanut butter in these recipes. Since receiving the package of PB Crave Peanut Butter I’ve made the following desserts:
Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream
(Adapted from a recipe by Cuisinart)
1 cup good quality peanut butter, such as PB Crave Choco Choco
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 cup whole milk
2 cups heavy cream
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup chopped peanut butter cups, such as Reese’s Cups
In a medium bowl using a blender, mix the peanut butter and sugar until smooth. On low speed, slowly add the milk until the sugar is dissolved. Continue blending for 2-3 minutes. Slowly add in the cream and vanilla blending on low until mixed well.
Cover and refrigerate overnight.
Freeze according to the manufacturers directions for your ice cream maker. Once the mixture is frozen, remove to an airtight container and fold in the chopped peanut butter cups. Freeze for several hours until ready to serve. Remove from the freezer about 15 minutes before serving.
Congratulations again to No. 42 Sandie @ Chatty Crone! Her number was chosen using www.random.org. Thank you all for participating.
Hope you have a fun week ahead. I can’t believe July 4th is around the corner! Are you going to BBQ? Having burgers and hot dogs on the grill? Gonna watch fireworks? We have no plans so let us know what time to come over 🙂 Can I bring our dogs too? I can bring dessert – let me know how many you plan to feed. Did I just invite myself over? Yes I did! See you soon I hope.
