Simple 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter and Chocolate "Ice Cream" is just the perfect amount of peanut butter flavor and speckled chocolate pieces grace this fabulously soft and silky "ice cream". A simple recipe that is sure to be a favorite in your house too.
Ice cream is a staple in our house. Every single one of us would be happy to eat it all day. I always try to keep healthy options available for us and for our 3 year old daughter, so you will almost always find our latest banana ice cream creation in the freezer (next to all the soup I have frozen to get us through the year).
After yet another request for banana ice cream from my Munchkin, and a nagging craving for a truckload of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups I decided to make a decadent ice cream treat by adding peanut butter and chocolate. This is kind of my own version of Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream. Score!
Munchkin is ecstatic and spinning in circles all over the house. That may have a tad bit more to do with the sugar that the excitement, but I'll just go with it! Just the perfect amount of peanut butter flavor and speckled chocolate pieces grace this fabulously soft and silky "ice cream".
Exactly what I needed and exactly what you need too. Enjoy!
With love from our simple kitchen to yours.
