Fat Daddy Ice Cream: A Peanut Butter Chocolate Revolution
Why? I couldn't really tell you... though I like to joke that it's based in part on the theory that the colder your insides are, the warmer it feels outside. I mean, let's be honest. That seems as good a reason as any to enjoy this deliciously creamy treat, doesn't it?
I answer with a resoundingly confident: YES! Especially if it contains two of my favorite things -- peanut butter and chocolate -- which this amazing ice cream does.
The idea for Fat Daddy ice cream was inspired by a particularly delicious Ben & Jerry's flavor that bears a similar name: Chubby Hubby. According to B&J's description, Chubby Hubby consissts of "Fudge Covered Peanut Butter Filled Pretzels in Vanilla Malt Ice Cream Rippled with Fudge & Peanut Butter". Umm... really. How can you argue with that?
So we didn't. But, we did set out to make our own version of this sensational favorite.
So, we set out and churned up a nice big batch of malted milk ice cream, and layered it into pint-sized containers with drizzles of peanut butter fudge and plenty of chocolate covered pretzels. After an hour or two in the freezer, our creation was ready to be tested.
Heh. Testing ice cream is always our favorite part.
But, you don't have to take our word for it. Based on the reviews of a couple of friends who taste-tested this particular flavor for us (thanks, Mike & Ann!!), I think we can be pretty confident that this recipe is ready to be released to the public.
