For this week's Sunday Slow Scoopers, Chris chose any flavor of chocolate from the Perfect Scoop. At first I thought I'd keep it simple and go with the Philadelphia Style Chocolate Ice Cream - basic and simple. But then I saw the chocolate peanut butter, which is one of my favorite flavors and it was way simple, meeting the second requirement, so that's I went with.
And Lisa, if you're reading this, just come over for some before it's all gone.
Oh, and for weight watchers, a 1/3 cup serving is 5 points.
- 2 cups half and half
- 1/4 c dutch process cocoa (I don't know what's wrong with me but I can never find this so I used regular old unsweetened cocoa)
- 1/2c sugar
- 1 pinch of salt
- 1/2c smooth peanut butter.
Mix everything but the peanut butter in a medium sauce pan with and whisk and bring to a rolling boil (stirring), it will foam. Remove from the heat, whisk in the peanut butter until smooth. Chill (I do it overnight). Pour into your ice cream maker following the manufacturer's instructions.
This didn't make as much as I had hoped just shy of 3/4quart. Next time, I'll 1.5x the recipe. Oh, and yes, there will be a next time - it was delicious.
