Peanut Butter & Marshmallow Creme Ice Cream

Oh wow...Did I say WOW?  I have a new favorite ice cream.  This ice cream is heavenly.  If you like peanut butter or Resse's peanut butter cups then you have to make this ice cream.

I started out with my basic go to ice cream base.  Whipping Cream, half and half, sugar and vanilla.  I wanted peanut butter but I did not want just globs of creamy peanut butter in my ice cream.  Cally had bought some Amish Peanut Butter spread last week from the Deli where she works and that sounded like a good idea.  I looked at the grocery store yesterday and they did not have it.  We use to purchase it in Berlin when we would go up to Amish County.  I was told a long time ago that the spread was Creamy Peanut Butter and Marshmallow Creme.  So the wheels in my head got to turning and I decided to buy peanut butter and marshmallow cream for the ice cream.  Oh and you can not forget the mini Reese's cups either.

I mixed my peanut butter and marshmallow creme together with my mixer before I added it to the ice cream machine.  It was kind of thick so I decided I would let my ice cream churn for about 20 minutes before I added it.  I think I should have waited a little longer for the ice cream to set up a little bit more because once I added the peanut butter mixture and my mini resse's cups it quit churning.  I had to mix it in by hand and then I was able to get the machine to churn for about 3 more minutes and it quit again.  It was not quite set up like I prefer it to be before I put it in the freezer but after it has been in the freezer over night it does scoop out just fine.

In this close up picture you can see the peanut butter chunks that are mixed through out the ice cream.  I actually liked the chunks of peanut butter/marshmallow creme better than the Reese's cups.
