Dulce de Leche Peanut Butter Ice Cream

Dulce de Leche Peanut Butter Ice Cream with salted peanuts is a delightful farewell to the summer.

Dulce de Leche Peanut Butter Ice Cream

Hello, everyone! I hope you are prepared (Emotionally) for autumn. Cause Mother Nature doesn’t ask us if we are ready for a season change, and Ms. Autumn is literally around the corner. Do you hear her knocking on the door? Wait, Autumn. Not yet. We still have a couple of days to enjoy some summer treats.

And I do believe this smooth and rich Dulce de Leche Peanut Butter Ice Cream would be a perfect dessert to celebrate the end of this summer. Don’t get it wrong, my friends. The ice cream season is all year round in our house. However, we mostly enjoy store-bought ice cream during cold months. While I am not going to use my ice cream maker as often as during summer, I have a couple of seasonal ideas, so I am not rushing to pack it. By the way, try this Pumpkin Dulce de Leche Ice Cream.

As you might know, I am a huge fan of dulce de leche (Does anyone else eat it just straight from the jar?), and that’s one of my favourite ice cream flavors. Do you need proof? Well, let’s count:

Dulce de Leche Ice Cream 

Coconut Dulce De Leche Ice Cream

Dulce De Leche Bailey’s Ice Cream

Oreo Dulce De Leche Ice Cream

Dulce De Leche Twix Ice Cream

Dulce de Leche Cheesecake Ice Cream

I do love all the above-mentioned combinations except, probably, the marriage of coconut and dulce de leche; it was a bit strange to my liking. I am so happy that we’ve got this delightful Dulce de Leche Peanut Butter Ice Cream in this collection. Are you?

Funny enough, every time I think that I run out all possible dulce de leche combinations, and I won’t be able to generate anything else. But I know I can always rely on you; you will always share some more awesome ideas, won’t you? :)

And I promise to share this Dulce de Leche Peanut Butter Ice Cream in return for your kindness.

Cheers!

 

Dulce de Leche Peanut Butter Ice Cream

Ingredients

  • 5 egg yolks
  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 1,5 cups milk (2%)
  • 2/3 jar (350 gr) dulce de leche
  • 1/2 - 2/3 cup peanut butter, smooth or chunky
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup (or more) toasted and salted peanuts, chopped

Instructions

  1. To make the ice cream, in a saucepan combine the milk and cream and keep just until it starts to simmer. Don't bring to a boil.
  2. In a medium bowl whisk together the yolks and vanilla.
  3. Add about 1 cup of the hot milk&cream mixture to the eggs, and whisk until smooth. Incorporating the hot cream in two steps will help prevent the eggs from scrambling.
  4. Add the egg mixture into the pan with the remaining hot cream.
  5. Return the mixture to the saucepan and continue cooking over low heat and not allowing to boil, constantly mixing, for about 5-7 minutes.
  6. Remove from heat. Stir in the dulce de leche and peanut butter. Try and add more of peanut butter or caramel if desired to your liking. Completely cool then refrigerate.
  7. Once the custard has cooled, place it in an ice cream maker and follow the manufacturer's directions for use, normally it takes between 25 and 35 minutes. One minute prior to the end of the cycle, add the chopped peanuts.
  8. Transfer the ice cream into a container. Freeze for a few hours until firm and scoopable.

8 Thoughts on “Dulce de Leche Peanut Butter Ice Cream

  1. So into dulce de leche ! Thank you for this one !

  2. Do looking forward to fall this year! I love your ice cream creations, Ben. And, as usual, this dulce de leche version looks heavenly!

  3. I’m sad that we are saying farewell to summer Ben, but what better way than with this dulce de leche peanut butter ice cream. And with the addition of those salted peanuts this ice cream is so decadent. You would have loved the selection of fresh homemade icecreams that were available for dessert in our hotel in Zanzibar Ben. So many to choose from. I know you would have been noteing them down to re-make when you got home! :-)

  4. See, the thing is I was totally prepared for fall. I love it. But here in Newfoundland the weather seemed to go from warm to cold overnight. I love fall, but I can’t stand it too cold and the moisture in the air makes it that much more bone-chillingly-cold. Know what I mean? Anywho – I guess I’ll just have to put away my open-toed shoes and break out the boots :) No matter how cold it gets, I could always, always, go for ice-cream and you’ve hit the ball out of the park with this one Ben. Ain’t no way I’m stopping at one scoop of this beauty :)

  5. You know, I don’t think I’ve ever looked forward to fall as much as I am this year. It’s been a very stormy summer so I’m excited to see more even weather. And I have to agree with Katherine. This must be the best ice cream ever. Ever. Dulce de leche and peanut butter? Could it get any better than that?

  6. Well Ben, today’s the last day of Summer for you guys so enjoy it. Fall has already arrived over here. I like this looks of this one, then I like the looks of all your ice creams. Wonder what it would taste like with caramel sauce on top?

  7. So I have to ask – why is Autumn “Ms. Autumn?” Why not Mrs. Autumn? Or Mr. Autumn. Things that make you go hmmm. :-) All joking aside, you’ve been killing it with the ice creams lately, Ben! You’re celebrating these last few ‘official’ days of summer in the right way! I love adding salted peanuts on top of ice cream, and the dulce de leche + peanut butter base here? That’s my kind of dessert! Send me a scoop?

  8. Ben, this might possibly be the best ice cream ever! I LOVE dulce de leche, just like you. And peanut butter is right up there too!! I often just take a spoonful of peanut butter and sprinkle some chocolate chips on it…don’t tell anyone that, ok!? This looks AMAZING!
