Reese's Treats Peanut Butter Ice Cream

My favorite ice cream sundae is the loaded Reese's Pieces Sundae at Friendly's.  It has your choice of ice cream with peanut butter and marshmallow sauces mixed in, then topped with whipped cream and Reese's pieces, they have another sundae made with Reese's peanut butter cups which is very good too.  When I saw a recipe for Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream in the Cuisinart recipe booklet I had to try it and adapted it slightly to combine the tastes of my favorite sundae.

1 cup peanut butter
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 cup whole milk
2 cups heavy cream
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cup combination of reese's peanut butter cups and pieces
Marshmallow sauce: (optional) 1/3 cup mini marshmallows, 1 Tbsp marshmallow fluff,
1/2 tsp heavy cream, melt together on low heat until blended and smooth

With a hand mixer mix the peanut butter and sugar in a medium bowl until smooth.  Add milk and mix well about 1 minute.  Stir in the heavy cream and vanilla.  Cover and refrigerate until chilled through, a few hours or overnight.
Pour mixture in ice cream maker and mix until soft serve consistency about 15 minutes, then add the candy mix-ins and marshmallow sauce until combined.  Pour into an airtight container and freeze until desired consistency.

 Yum Yum Yum
