Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream… Need I say more? With its rich peanut butter flavour and added chopped mini Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups, I’m sure I don’t need to tell you just how decadent this baby is!

Thanks to for this great recipe. Yes, it does require an ice cream machine, though I did notice some no-churn peanut butter ice cream recipes out there if you’re desperate. Or, you might like to try this Peanut Butter Semifreddo with crunchy peanut praline – totally divine!

Nothing else to say except it’s super simple, super tasty and I can’t wait to hoe into it tonight after dinner (though I have already had a fair good sampling already!). Enjoy!



Discover pure peanut butter bliss! This creamy ice cream is loaded with peanut butter flavor and studded with chunks of chocolate peanut butter cups. The ultimate sweet and salty treat for peanut butter lovers!
