This creamy peanut butter ice cream is made without an ice cream maker and packed full of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup chunks. This one is for the peanut butter-chocolate lovers!
For as long as I can remember, I’ve been choosing peanut butter cups as my top ice cream add-in. Whether it’s in a blizzard from Dairy Queen or a self-serve shop, peanut butter cups are my #1 choice of treat. It wasn’t a difficult decision to make when I had to choose an ice cream flavor for National Ice Cream Day! This is my new favorite homemade ice cream recipe and I can’t wait to share it with you today.
Just look at all that peanut butter cup goodness! I love this ice cream because it’s got a light peanut butter flavor in addition to the chunks of peanut butter cups. Just enough without being overpowering. It’s the perfect treat if you love peanut butter.
