2-½ cups Whole Milk
1 cup Sugar
⅓ cups Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1 whole Pinch Of Salt
3 Tablespoons Cornstarch
½ cups Heavy Cream
¾ cups Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips Or Chunks
½ cups Smooth, Salted Peanut Butter
In a sauce pan over medium heat, stir together 2 cups whole milk, sugar, cocoa powder and salt. Heat until the milk starts to steam, but before it starts to boil.
In a small bowl, stir together the remaining 1/2 cup of whole milk and the cornstarch. Stir until no lumps remain.
Add the cornstarch mixture to the heated milk and chocolate mixture and bring to a low boil. Boil until thickened. The mixture will have the consistency of chocolate pudding. Remove from the flame.
In a small sauce pan, heat 1/2 cup of heavy cream. Once boiling, remove from heat and pour over the chocolate chips. Let sit for 1 minute, then stir the cream and chocolate mixture until incorporated.
Stir the cream and chocolate mixture into the cooling chocolate ice cream base. Place in a bowl, covered with plastic wrap or a lid, and put in the fridge until cool.
Once cool, follow the manufacturer’s instructions on the ice cream maker to churn ice cream. Once the mixture has chilled and thickened in the ice cream maker, slowly drizzle in 1/4 cup of peanut butter. You can heat the peanut butter in the microwave for a few seconds to soften it a bit. Don’t over mix. You want a nice ribbon of peanut butter running through the ice cream.
Transfer the ice cream into a freezer safe container and fold in the remaining 1/4 cup of peanut butter. Cover and freeze until solid.
