This is the best and creamiest ice cream we have made in our ice cream machine yet. It is absolutely delicious. It tastes a lot like a very popular candy bar that is chocolate with peanut butter in it. Only, there is NO peanut butter in our recipe because my husband is allergic to peanuts. If there is no peanut allergy in your home, you could substitute Peanut Butter for the Sunbutter. You would never know the difference, tho, as sunbutter tastes so much like peanut butter. We had to go easy on the sugar because he is also diabetic. Copyright: Dan and Marlene Gilliam 2013
Sunbutter is Sunflower Seed Butter and has a flavor much like Peanut Butter, but is safe for most nut-allergic people. Be sure to check with your doctor to see if it is safe for you if you have nut allergies.
Beat 8 egg yolks with half of the sugar and set aside
Heat one quart of half and half over medium heat till nearly boiling.
Add the remaining ingredients (Cocoa, Sunbutter, remainder of sugars, salt and vanilla) and stir till well mixed. Add a cup of hot mix to egg yolks very slowly, while stirring. Then stir the egg mixture into the pot of hot milk mix slowly, while stirring and continue to stir until it thickens to a custard texture. Remove from heat and cool pan in bowl of iced water till mix is cool.
Eat it as it comes out of ice cream maker (soft-serve) or place in ice cream freezer and process until frozen. Makes 10.5 cups
NOTE: You can also substitute more of the sugar with sweetener if you want.
You can substitute the Sunbutter with Peanut Butter if you are not allergic.
