Make a delicious treat this summer with Homemade Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream!
We are ready to start the SUMMER! That’s right today is the last day of school for our kids. Now I’m going to have a 1st and 5th grader. Where does time go?
I have absolutely NO plans, I’m a little nervous about that but honestly, I’m ready for a break just as much as the kids. I am sure though I’ll be coming up with some activities for us here after we rest a bit first.
Plus, we have the pool that we joined opening up which is going to be fun too. I have high hopes for that! We actually had a pool in our backyard last year, an above ground pool, it turns out we put it on top of a lateral line that we didn’t know was there.
So the whole thing had to come down this year after I spent a bunch to get it ready to open.
What a bummer, right? I won’t miss scooping out the bugs each morning so they can swim in it, but I will miss going out back for a swim in the afternoon or evening.
If we do another pool, this time we’ll have it professionally done. Summer also means it’s time for homemade ice cream!
How do you make Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream?
It’s basically a homemade vanilla base with peanut but cup candy mixed in and it’s absolutely wonderful. This same method can be used for just about any candy that you prefer to use.
Did you know that you can also make homemade ice cream in a bag?
I’m anxious to try this recipe this summer with the kids too!
