“Creamy Peanut Butter Nutella Ice Cream”

Before you say “ew, yuck” on the flavor combination, just hear me out for a second. This ice cream is delicious and almost tastes like mousse. It is so creamy, fluffy and light, you would never know it wasn’t made in a maker. Yes, it doesn’t even need an ice cream maker or salt! It only requires a few things and will take less than 10 minutes to make! I bet you already have most of the things on hand!

This is definitely a recipe that can be made with a little help from your kiddos.

You will need:
1 can (14oz) of Sweetened Condensed Milk
2 cups heavy cream
3 tablespoons butter, melted
A small, small, super small pinch of salt (to balance out the sweet)
3 tablespoons peanut butter (creamy or chunky)
1/2 cup Nutella

1. First step is to whip heavy cream to stiff peaks in large bowl. I achieved this by whipping the cream on med-high for 2 minutes or so.

2. In a separate large bowl, whisk sweetened condensed milk, butter, salt and nutella. Stir in peanut butter.

3. Final step is to fold in the whipped cream into the nutella mixture. You can top ice cream with magic shell (as seen below) to make sort of a “fudge like” swirl in the ice cream.

4. Pour into a large enough tupperware container and cover. Freeze 6 hours or until firm. Store in freezer.

Although, the original recipe called for peanut butter chips, I felt that they were kind of annoying and got way too hard when frozen. Instead, I felt the peanut butter would be a much better option. Also, the original recipe was a bit too sweet for my taste, a little tiny pinch of salt would definitely balance that out.

    Just seeing this now, on the peanut butter chips…….you mentioned the freezing issue, have you thought about maybe trying it where you added them in separately when you ate it? Maybe that’d solve the freeze issue there. Just an idea. Love the recipe though either way. :)
