Make a delicious treat this summer with Homemade Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream!
It’s time to start the summer with some homemade ice cream and this Homemade Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream is the perfect treat!
Homemade Ice Cream is a tradition for us and always has been. My aunt used to make huge batches of it every 4th of July, so that’s how I fell in love with homemade ice cream.
Now it’s fun to make it with the kids and let them pick different candies to add to it. In this recipe, you can swap out the peanut butter cups with basically any candy you want to try such as Snickers or Butterfingers. It’s very versatile and will work the same way with whichever candy you choose.

Can you use whipping cream?

I would stick with half and half or regular heavy cream, not whipping cream.
