Easy Peasy Pudding and… ICE CREAM! (recipe)
Well I missed my St. Patrick’s Day bonanza as I was going to bring you my wonderful creation of Irish Cake Bombs but that little experiment fell to the wayside when I ummm consumed some of the ingredients quite by accident I assure you! BUT I already promised you that I would bring you a recipe in honor of Ann Charles’ release of the latest Deadwood Mystery book! Please do not forget to enter the drawing for a copy of that after you take down this recipe and before you go to the store for the ingredients! Saturdays rock when you have ice cream to eat!
As I have shared before, Ice cream is part of the basic food groups here in Alaska. Violet of Ann Charles great and wonderful Deadwood Mysteries agrees and her favorite is Peanut Butter Fudge. Known to tease Doc by claiming her skin was so soft because she has been rubbing in the ice cream at night, but mostly she can be found in front of her favorite Bogart flick daintily sucking a bowl down after resisting the urge of poisoning Ray for the day. Or more than likely recovering after a near miss with a fire and dealing with ghosts, at least that is what they keep telling her is going on. Ice cream makes it all better! But there are times that all the store has is Neapolitan or Vanilla and your favorite flavor is not available, or the 7-11 was out of the ½ gallon size of Chunky Monkey. I have the problem solved with this easy NO machine or rock salt needed! You can make this ice cream in 4 easy steps!
Start with 2 cups of heavy cream and 1 can of Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk.
Whip the heavy cream to stiff peaks…
Add your flavors, toppings, and mix-ins to the sweetened condensed milk…
Then fold in the whipped cream.
That’s it! Freeze and enjoy!!
So what can you add to the cream & milk??
Whip heavy cream to stiff peaks in large bowl. Whisk sweetened condensed milk, butter, cinnamon, and vanilla in large bowl. Mix well. Fold in whipped cream.
Pour into a 2-quart container and cover. Freeze 6 hours or until firm. Store in freezer.
Now to make Peanut Butter Fudge? Simple! Buy some of your favorite Chocolate Fudge topping, grab either creamy or chunky peanut butter and a spoonful at a time add about a ½ hour after you stick it in the freezer. The ice cream will have just started getting a bit thick, and you can create your own swirl! This is the way I made it and it worked. I am sure you can be all fancy by adding these earlier etc… perhaps with a bit of vanilla but lets face it, after almost being burnt alive by a ghost and fending off the advances of a serial kill all day you want it to be as simple as possible!
