Ever since I got my ice cream maker a few months back, my children have been asking for chocolate ice cream. While I could have been boring and made just that, I decided to add a little something to the ice cream. Personally, I think peanut butter tastes great with chocolate, and I don’t think I am ready to put chunks in my ice cream yet so I attempted to do a peanut butter swirl. I ended up with something less than a swirl, but the chocolate peanut butter ice cream itself is amazing.
Since it is more a frozen custard than ice cream, it is very rich. I can usually eat a lot of ice cream, but even I had problems eating what I gave myself.
I created a double batch since there are 7 of us. If you need or want less, you can easily cut the recipe in half.

We ended up serving the ice cream with one of the chocolate chip cookies that Lynn made, and some of our home made hard shell.
