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!
