chocolate-peanut butter ice cream with chocolate covered peanuts
I love the combination of chocolate and peanuts. So when I found this recipe for chocolate-peanut butter ice cream in my copy of David Lebovitz's "The Perfect Scoop", I had to try it!
I also made chocolate-covered peanuts, chopped them up, and added them to the ice cream during the last five minutes of churning. This wasn't part of the original recipe, but I thought it would taste great with the ice cream.
The double combination of chocolate and peanuts was heavenly. The ice cream was smooth and creamy, and the crunch of the chopped chocolate peanuts was a nice texture contrast.
Even though I loved this ice cream, I probably won't be making it very often as we recently found out that our daughter is allergic to peanuts. In fact, it turns out that she is allergic to most nuts, except for walnuts and pecans. But we'll probably have her stay away from all nuts in general. :( That being said, if she ever outgrows her peanut allergy, this would be the first thing I'd make for her!
