I can’t even look at that first photo and not drool.
Can you blame me?
My favorite ice cream flavor of all time is Baskin Robin’s chocolate peanut butter. My mom and I would always get it when we went out for ice cream. It’s so rich and the chunks of peanut butter were always mind blowing!
So, as a healthier recreation of my favorite, we have this!
It was a little stubborn to get out of the container. I was dumb and put it into a metal loaf pan (to be pretty, of course), but you can’t microwave a metal container to make it easier to scoop. You have to put it in a toaster oven! Trust me when I say that we did this a few times…every time we were impatient and wanted some of this really bad.
Other than the container malfunction, it was great…perfectly tart, rich, and delicious.

- In the last few minutes of churning, add in the chocolate chunks.

- Carefully and barely mix in the peanut butter, so that there will be chunks.
