  • Ice Cream Maker


  • 2 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 6 oz semi sweet chocolate (coarsely chopped)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 dash salt
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter


  • Add the heavy cream, milk, cocoa powder, and sugar to a medium sized sauce pan and heat through over medium high heat until the sugar is dissolved. Whisk everything together as it heats.
  • Add the chopped chocolate to a medium sized bowl. Pour the cream mixture over the top of the chocolate and let it sit for about 1 minute. Whisk it all together until the chocolate is melted and can be stirred in completely.
  • Stir in the vanilla extract and salt.
  • Place the mixture in the fridge for at least 2 hours, up to 24 hours.
  • Pour the mixture into a 2QT sized ice cream maker, and let the ice cream maker run according to the manufactures directions, or until the ice cream is churned into a thick soft serve ice cream.
  • Microwave the peanut butter for 30 seconds, until it is nice and runny.
  • Scoop about 1/3 of the ice cream into a 2 QT container, then drizzle about 1/3 of the peanut butter over the top of the ice cream.
  • Repeat with more ice cream, more peanut butter, more ice cream, and more peanut butter.
  • Cover the ice cream and place it in the freezer for 6 hours, or overnight, for a thicker, harder, hand scooped ice cream.
