Chocolate and peanut butter come together in this Peanut Butter Ice Cream with Chocolate Chips and become a match made in Heaven.
Ever since my first bite of a Reese Cup as a young child I have been obsessed with everything chocolate and peanut butter. Candy, milk shakes, ice cream, you name it, and if it’s chocolate and peanut butter I would eat it. Well, unless it’s some sort of crazy savory concoction. I may have to draw the line there. Ha.
I’ve always eaten homemade ice cream. I can remember growing up with the loud ice cream maker with ice and rock salt, that seemed to turn in circles forever. Then we ended up with this wonderful icy, sweet vanilla homemade ice cream, that I will forever remember eating out of red solo cups. I’ll also remember the story my mother used to tell me, of her first time seeing ice cream. It’s hysterical, but totally not appropriate to share here. Every time I have vanilla ice cream I’m reminded of her story. It makes my heart happy to be reminded of small memories of her.
Mothers’s Day was yesterday and I hope all of you momma’s out there enjoyed your day. I had a hard day. My mother’s been gone for years, and as the years have passed it’s been easier to cope. However, this year for whatever reason was really rough. I cried at least three times yesterday. Kelsie made me a pretty picture, and Kayla bought me a balloon and a gift card for a long overdue pedicure. Zack cooked steak, sweet potatoes, and creamed spinach. We didn’t eat until almost nine though. Kelsie and I got in the pool, first swim of the season. And Zack cut grass, and trimmed trees. Ahh, the joys of being a home owner. I think he may have gotten in the pool twice last year, because every weekend he was busy working in the yard. Hopefully this year he will be able to enjoy it more.
I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! So how do you make this wonderful duo of an ice cream? Simple!
