Happy National Ice Cream Day!! This is the best food holiday all year long, I mean who doesn’t love ice cream?! I’ve fallen in love with no churn ice creams lately, although this custard based ice cream has me convinced I need to make a few more of those as well. Well, this no churn chocolate peanut butter cup ice cream is no exception to the list of amazing no churn ice creams I’ve made.
Its so hard to choose a favorite, but for today this one is my favorite. Its got a delicious chocolate ice cream made from a cocoa powder base, full of tons of peanut butter cup chunks and creamy peanut butter swirls
And like I’ve mentioned before, I always love the ease of no churn ice creams. Only 2 ingredients for the base, this one has 3 extra ingredients for a total of 5 ingredients and only about 10 minutes of prep time.
But really, chocolate and peanut butter is the best flavor combo – and if you love it as much as I do then you’ll love this ice cream too.
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
- ½ cup cocoa powder
- ½ cup peanut butter
- 1 cup chopped peanut butter cups
- In a large mixing bowl, whip your heavy cream over medium high speed for about 5 minutes until stiff peaks start to form. (It may take longer or shorter depending how fast you're doing it, you want it stiff, but a few minutes too long and you'll turn it into butter)
- In another bowl, combine your condensed milk and cocoa powder.
- Pour your whipped cream into your chocolate condensed milk mixture and fold everything together till combined.
- Melt your peanut butter in the microwave for about 30 seconds.
- Pour one third of your ice cream into a 9x5in loaf pan. Drizzle one third of your peanut butter over the ice cream and sprinkle with a third of the peanut butter cup pieces. Repeat with another third ice cream, peanut butter and peanut butter cups. And then repeat with the final ice cream, peanut butter and peanut butter cup pieces.
- Cover tightly and place in freezer for 6 hours, up to overnight.
