Hes hysterical…he asks to go on car rides about ten times a day, and cries when it comes time to get OUT of the car! haha It is so nice having an much easier with kiddos, car seats, we can actually fit more than just the four of us in it! We can fit EIGHT! And we already have..We headed down to a beach bar last weekend for some live music, dancing, cold beers, and late night dips in the ocean..What a blast its been! Man on man am I going to miss the ocean so much when we move..Ive been spoiled only being a couple miles away from it my whole life..I wish I could take it with meee.

Peanut Butter Swirled White Chocolate Ice Cream

Since July is National Ice Cream month, I couldn’t let you get by without an Ice Cream recipe! My sister came up for the week to stay with us last week, and we broke in my new Ice Cream Maker. I.can’t.stop. Homemade ice cream is a dreeeeam. Such dangerously delicious smooth and creamy goodness. I LOVE ice cream. We made this Peanut Butter Swirled White Chocolate flavor and it is PERFECT. If you know me at all, you know I have a huge love affair with white chocolate, I prefer it over dark or milk chocolate any day. (Except when I’m pregnant, so weird.)

Peanut Butter Swirled White Chocolate Ice Cream

This white chocolate ice cream is so creamy, and there is peanut butter in every.single.bite. I hate when I buy ice cream at the store claiming PB swirls and then you only get them in one out of every eight bites. Not cool. This one has it everywhere. Its amazing. And it doesn’t get super hard in the freezer! No more bent spoons, its perfectly scoop-able. I always thought homemade ice cream was really hard or a pain in the tookus, and while it can certainly be time consuming, mostly a lot of waiting, it is worth every single second. With the exception of my beloved Talenti Gelato, I will never go back to store bought ice cream!

Peanut Butter Swirled White Chocolate Ice Cream

Perfectly smooth and creamy white chocolate ice cream, loaded with white chocolate peanut butter makes for a heavenly dessert!


  • 1 cup chopped white chocolate
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 5 large egg yolks
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup White Chocolate Peanut Butter, melted


  1. In a large bowl pour in the white chocolate chips/chunks. Set aside.
  2. Fill a large bowl with cold water and ice.
  3. In a medium size sauce pan, over medium heat, stir together the milk, sugar, and salt until it is hot and steaming, but not boiling.
  4. In a separate medium sized bowl, whisk together the egg yolks.
  5. Once the milk mixture is hot, slowly, stream it down the side of the bowl into the egg yolks, constantly whisking it together. Don't pour it in all at once, you don't want to scramble your eggs.
  6. Pour the mixed egg yolks back into the medium pan and set it over medium heat.
  7. Using a rubber spatula, stir constantly all around, including the bottom of the pan, until the custard becomes thick and coats the spatula. Keep the liquid moving and do not let it boil.
  8. You'll know it is done when the custard begins to steam and you can run your finger across the spatula without it running back together.
  9. Pour the finished custard into the large bowl of white chocolate. Stir until the chocolate is fully melted and the mixture is smooth.
  10. Set it over the ice bath and stir in the cream until cool.
  11. Cover the mixture and chill in the refrigerator until completely cooled through. 2-4 hours.
  12. Churn it in your ice cream maker according to your manufacturers instructions. Mine takes about 25 minutes. In the last five minutes, slowly stream in the melted peanut butter.
  13. Then pour it into a freezer safe container and cover with either a lid, or plastic wrap flat on the surface of the ice cream. Freeze until hardened, about 2-4 hours. Enjoy!

    You’re so right… if you’re going to bother adding peanut butter to ice cream, you should taste it in every bite! Love this!
