πŸ“‹ Ingredients:

For the Chocolate Ice Cream Base:

  • πŸ₯› 2 cups heavy cream
  • πŸ₯› 1 cup whole milk
  • 🍫 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 🍫 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 🌿 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 🍫 4 large egg yolks

For the Peanut Butter Swirl:

  • πŸ₯œ 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 🍬 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • πŸ₯› 1/4 cup heavy cream

πŸ“ Directions:

1️⃣ Prepare the Chocolate Ice Cream Base:

  • In a medium saucepan, whisk together the heavy cream, whole milk, granulated sugar, and unsweetened cocoa powder over medium heat until the mixture is hot but not boiling.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk the egg yolks until they are pale and slightly thickened.
  • Slowly pour about 1 cup of the hot cream mixture into the egg yolks, whisking constantly to temper the eggs.
  • Pour the tempered egg mixture back into the saucepan with the remaining cream mixture.
  • Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens and coats the back of a spoon (about 170Β°F or 77Β°C). Do not let it boil.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract.
  • Strain the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve into a large bowl to remove any cooked egg bits.
  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, pressing it directly onto the surface of the custard to prevent a skin from forming. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or overnight, until completely chilled.

2️⃣ Prepare the Peanut Butter Swirl:

  • In a small bowl, whisk together the creamy peanut butter, powdered sugar, and heavy cream until smooth and well combined.

3️⃣ Churn the Ice Cream:

  • Once the chocolate ice cream base is chilled, pour it into your ice cream maker and churn according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

4️⃣ Add the Peanut Butter Swirl:

  • Transfer half of the churned ice cream to an airtight container. Dollop half of the peanut butter mixture over the ice cream.
  • Use a knife or spatula to gently swirl the peanut butter into the ice cream.
  • Repeat with the remaining ice cream and peanut butter mixture.

5️⃣ Freeze:

  • Freeze the ice cream for at least 2 hours, or until firm.

6️⃣ Serve:

  • Scoop and enjoy your rich and creamy Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream!
