Ingredients

  • ¾ cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • ¾ cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate , melted (only if making the "chocolate peanut butter cup")

Instructions 

  • In the bowl of your electric mixer combine peanut butter and sugar and beat until smooth.
  • Add in the heavy cream, milk, and vanilla; mix until well combined.
  • Pour the mixture into the ice cream maker and churn for 30 minutes.
  • At this point you can either transfer the ice cream to an airtight container and freeze it, or read on for directions on how to make those peanut butter cups.
  • Line a 12-cup mini muffin pan with paper liners.
  • Meanwhile, place semisweet chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and melt the chocolate.
  • Dividing evenly, use a spoon to layer half of the semi-sweet chocolate into liners.
  • Place the muffin pan in the freezer and freeze for 15 minutes or until firm.
  • Spoon in the ice cream over the chocolate layer and put it back in the freezer for another 15 minutes, or until frozen.
  • Cover the cups with another layer of chocolate and back in the freezer until frozen solid; about 30 minutes to one hour.
