Easy, Homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream

This ice cream is silky rich with just the right touch of salty peanut butter flavor and texture thrown in! This recipe will be sure to please any chocolate and peanut butter (or soy butter) lover that you know. They will be impressed that you have made this yourself!

And the great thing about this recipe is that it really isn't too complicated to make. And you don't have to have an ice cream maker to make it. It's a win all around. :)

Start by melting half of the chocolate and spreading it out in a nice, thing layer like so. And toss it into the fridge.

Then stir together your peanut butter mixture and spread it right on top of the chilled chocolate...

Chill again before topping with more chocolate. Then back in the fridge it goes once more.

Once the chocolate has been hardened go ahead and start shopping all of that deliciousness into tiny, little pieces of joy!

They don't have to look perfect! They will taste great no matter what. :)

Then make your ice cream, add the peanut butter/chocolate pieces to it, freeze, and enjoy!

Homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream
  • 1 recipe No Machine Chocolate Ice Cream
  • 1/4 Cup Peanut Butter (or Soy Butter. I used WOWBUTTER)
  • 1/4 Cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1/2 Tablespoon Butter, softened
  • 1/4 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 Cup Chocolate Chips (I used a mix of dark and semi-sweet)
  1. Melt 1/4 cup chocolate chips and spread into a very thin layer onto waxed paper. Refrigerate until firm.
  2. In a small bowl combine the peanut butter, powdered sugar, butter and vanilla extract (and a touch of milk, if too thick). Spread out onto firmed chocolate.
  3. Melt the rest of the chocolate chips and spread over the peanut butter mixture. Refrigerate once more. Once firm, chop into small pieces.
  4. Make your ice cream and fold in the peanut butter/chocolate pieces.
  5. Freeze for at least 4 hours before serving.
