Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream Sandwich

Okay, I’ve been holding onto this post for the right time to post it. Okay, maybe I just realized that I hadn’t posted it yet.

Oops.

We stopped for ice cream three weeks ago, and I tried their chocolate peanut butter ice cream. Or, is it called peanut butter chocolate ice cream? Both sound equally yummy.  Believe it or not, that was the first time I tried that flavor of ice cream. I know. The peanut butter and chocolate freak. I was in heaven. My husband just rolled his eyes.

Since then, I’ve been back twice. I can’t get enough of it. My husband finally told me that he wasn’t fighting the crowd anymore for me to get my peanut butter and chocolate fix. So, I decided to make my own-in sandwich form.

I’ve been wanting to get an ice cream maker for some time now. I would see a ton of them at the store every time I went shopping and I would say to Emily, “I’m getting one of those.” I took my husband’s plea to not go to the ice cream shoppe as an excuse to finally make that purchase.

I have big plans for that baby. We are going to make lots of different flavors. Experimental flavors. Baahahaa, I will be the ice cream scientist!

Right now, I just am just starting with chocolate-and adding peanut butter to it. Oh, you  thought there was just peanut butter in the cookies? You silly goose!

I think I got a couple of  ice cream sandwiches made before eating the other cookies. I can’t blame it on the kids because I told you before that my kids don’t eat peanut butter. Hmmm. Maybe you had forgotten. Oh well. Remember, I work off all those calories afterwards, so I’m good.
