Fluffernutter Chip Ice Cream

Alright! Back in the States, back in the kitchen! Starting off, of course, with some ice cream. Peanut butter and fluff is a flavor combo that pretty much can’t go wrong.

IMG_7710Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups marshmallow fluff
  • 2/3 cups white chocolate chips

Combine the cream, milk, sugar, salt, and 1 cup of the peanut butter in a large saucepan over medium heat.

IMG_7696Cook, stirring constantly, until the peanut butter melts. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until the mixture begins to bubble around the edges.

Ok mine bubbled toward the middle first?

Remove from the heat, stir in the vanilla, and transfer to a bowl. Refrigerate until well chilled – for me this took almost 2 hours.

Once it cools a bit, put some saran wrap right down on the surface or else you get a narsty peanut butter skin on the top.

Once cold, freeze the mixture in your ice cream maker.
