Double Peanut Butter & Pretzel Sundae
I am always game for an amazing ice-cream sundae. This is my newest favorite because it combines two of my favorite flavors – Peanut Butter & Co. Old Fashioned Smooth and Peanut Butter & Co. Dark Chocolatey Dreams. To give the ice-cream extra texture I take it over the top by adding chocolate peanut butter dipped pretzels. The saltiness of the pretzel lends just the right amount of extra flavor and subtle crunch.
- Yield:1 quart ice cream; about 4 sundaes
- Prep Time:2 hours 15 min
- Cook Time:9 hours 5 min
- Total Time:11 hours 20 minutes
In a blender, puree the Peanut Butter & Co. Old Fashioned Smooth, sugar, cream, half-and-half and salt until completely smooth. You might need to stop and scrape down the sides of the blender a few times to make sure everything gets completely incorporated.
While the ice cream is chilling, melt 1/2 cup Peanut Butter & Co. Dark Chocolatey Dreams in a shallow sauce pan over very low heat. Dip each pretzel until it is completely coated and then place it on a sheet of wax paper. Place the pretzels in the freezer for at least 2 hours.
Pour the mixture into a glass bowl and chill it in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours. Then, pour it into an ice cream maker and churn according to the manufacturer’s directions.
While the ice cream is churning, break the pretzels into pieces about 1/4” to 1/2” wide. When the ice cream is ready to be removed from the machine fold in the pretzels with a spatula until evenly incorporated.
To make the sundae, melt the remaining 1/2 cup of Peanut Butter & Co. Dark Chocolatey Dreams over low heat. Scoop the ice-cream evenly into four bowls. Drizzle each bowl with 1/4 of the Dark Chocolate Dreams Sauce. Top with whipped cream and serve.
