Peanut Butter Ice Cream

Welcome to a Summer Ice Cream Social brought to you by Love in the Kitchen!  In celebration of National Ice Cream Month, I'll be bringing you delcious ice cream treats all week long.  Bring your favorite ice cream treats to share on our facebook page.  It can't be a "social" unless y'all stop by!

Today I'm bringing you Peanut Butter Ice Cream.  This is a totally amazing ice cream, packed full of salty roasted peanuts and sweet smooth cream.

You could add chocolate to this - a thick super-chocolatey fudge sauce would be wonderful - but really, it is pretty darn amazing just as is.  Even better, dare I say, than peanut butter straight from the jar!

Check back here all this week for more from Love in the Kitchen's Summer Ice Cream Social!  And head over to Love in the Kitchen on Facebook for even more tips and recipes to help you make your favorite ice cream... and maybe even find a couple of new contenders for that #1 spot!
