Although I have only been making this ice cream for a couple of years, it was one of those instant hits. Everyone who has ever tried it, loved it. You can make it with or without an ice cream maker. You can change up the candy in it to suit your own taste.
1 can (300ml) regular or low fat sweetened condensed milk
1/4 cup chocolate syrup
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
2 cups whipping cream, whipped (DO NOT use non-dairy whipped topping)
1 cup coarsely chopped peanut butter cups or candy bar of your choice
1/4 cup peanut butter
Combine sweetened condensed milk, chocolate syrup and vanilla.
Fold in whipped cream. Fold in chopped candy bar.
Pour contents into ice cream maker and churn for 20 minutes. Drop peanut butter by teaspoons in ice cream maker. Continue to churn for 10 minutes. Turn off ice cream maker and put the ice cream into a container, cover and freeze for 6 hours or until firm.
Without an ice cream maker, simply add the peanut butter and pour into a 9" x 5" loaf pan, cover and freeze for 6 hours.
Tips - You can add any chocolate bar or Smarties type candy. You can increase the chocolate syrup to 2/3 cup if you like a more chocolate ice cream base or omit the peanut butter.
