How to Make Reese’s Cup Ice Cream
Step 1: Blend the Peanut Butter Mixture
In a large bowl, use a hand-held electric mixer to blend the peanut butter, sugar, milk, and vanilla until creamy and well-combined. This should take about 5 minutes.
Step 2: Add the Heavy Cream
Pour the heavy cream into the peanut butter mixture and blend until everything is fully combined.
Step 3: Freeze in an Ice Cream Maker
Transfer the mixture to your electric ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Step 4: Add the Peanut Butter Cups
When the ice cream is almost set, pause the machine and add in the quartered miniature peanut butter cups.
Step 5: Complete the Freezing Process
Cover the ice cream again and restart the machine, allowing it to churn until the ice cream reaches the desired consistency, similar to soft serve. For a firmer texture, transfer the ice cream to a freezer-safe container, such as a loaf pan, cover it with plastic wrap, and freeze for about 4 hours.
Tips, Tricks, and FAQs
