Peanut butter ice cream

I talk a lot of about my favorite flavors; Chocolate, citrus, coconut, caramel and PEANUT BUTTER! I seriously can’t get enough of these 5 flavors and of course Ice cream is one of my favorite food groups so I am SO excited to share one of my favorite ice cream recipes with you guys. I was going to wait until a more Ice Cream “appropriate” month, like July… but when I realized it was National Peanut Butter day I had to go for it (and I make Ice Cream year round, maybe some of you do as well)

The BEST Peanut Butter Ice cream recipe you'll ever have!

This is a custard based recipe which means CREAMY!!!! My daughter loves it as much as I do and we love making this one together. In fact last time we made a double batch, she threw some of my berry Coulis on top and we called it PB&J ice cream. Personally I like it all by itself, but if I was going to add to it I’d rather have on top of my Chocolate Brownies with some Hot Fudge.

This custard based creamy peanut butter ice cream is perfect

Cuisine: American
Serves: 1 quart
Ingredients
  • 3/4 C granulated sugar
  • 2 Lrg eggs

Instructions
  1. Beat the sugar, eggs and egg yolks until they are thick and pale yellow
  2. In a saucepan bring the milk to a simmer
  3. Slowly beat the milk into the eggs (don't just pour it it will cook the eggs)
  4. Pour the entire mixture back into the saucepan and place over LOW heat
  5. Stir constantly until the custard thickens (be careful not to scramble the eggs)
  6. Remove from heat and stir in the peanut butter
  7. Pour through a strainer into a bowl and stir in the cream and vanilla
  8. Refrigerate overnight until cold.
  9. Run through your ice cream machine according to your machine's directions
  10. You can eat it when done, or freeze at least 2 hours for firmer ice cream (my preference)

There isn't much I like more than good ice cream, this Peanut butter recipe is easy and delicious

Creating a Velvet Fondant effect

I have been obsessed with chocolate cakes lately!  I mean I love a gorgeous white wedding cake, but for our last wedding photoshoot I created the most gorgeous chocolate wedding cake ever.  I can’t wait to share the pictures for it.  A few weeks later I decided to use the same technique on this Thanksgiving centerpiece.

Rock Troll Oreo Cookie pops – Frozen Party Food

Yet another Oreo Truffle Pop!  I love these things.  You can also use cake pops for these Rock Troll pops if you want, either one works GREAT!  You create grey “rocks” then add green luster dust for a “moss” look.  What do you think? My husband didn’t get it, or think they were great, but I LOVED how they turned out!

Rock Troll Oreo cookie ball pops are easy to make, taste great and are adorable and perfect for your Frozen birthday party

Homemade Croissants

Here is my last recipe, Croissants, I made this year for our Blogger Thanksgiving! The FULL roundup with links to everyone will be posted tomorrow!

I have been making homemade croissants for years. I remember the first time I made then, about 7 years ago, I was so worried that they simply wouldn’t work. I mean they seem SO complicated! But in truth they are really SO easy, but a bit messy. There is simply a lot of waiting! Do a few steps, wait, do a few steps wait…. etc… But when you break one open they are SO worth it!

homemade croissants are actually super easy to make, just a little time consuming, but totally worth it.
