It is never too cold for ice cream and it’s certainly never too cold for this Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Ice Cream. In all honesty, I shot these images ages ago at the height of the Cape Town summer but somehow the recipe got left behind when posting here on heinstirred.

The recipe is a classic vanilla ice cream from David Lebovitz’s book The Perfect Scoop (love the new updated cover). I really like David’s recipes and I always refer to his ice cream recipes in The Perfect Scoop for inspiration and to use his recipes as a base for experimentation. For this version I added 100g crunchy peanut butter, a handful roughly chopped Afrikoa 70% dark chocolate chips and some chopped salted and roasted peanuts to add texture and more peanut flavour.

This Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Ice Cream is a custard based ice cream, using a cooked egg custard as the base. It is a rich ice cream as it contains 6 egg yolks.

I have been experimenting with other ice cream bases like no churns that use condensed milk as a base but I think my favourite base has to be the Philadelphia style base. Consisting of cream and milk and no eggs, it is a lighter ice cream, less rich and quicker to make but by no means less delicious. I have a bitter orange and marzipan ice cream in the freezer made in that style, waiting to be tasted, photographed and shared here soon.

I think peanut butter and chocolate is such a classic combination of flavours and this ice cream is delicious scooped on its own or as a topping on a baked pudding like these Boozy Chocolate Coffee Puddings.
