Things are happening, you guys. So, I don’t know if you cool folks follow me on Instagram, but if you do then you know that Friday was full of last day donuts, lattes, and pizza. It’s transition time, and I’m excited about it! New year, new job, new (to me) couch, new shoes, new ice cream flavor. Let’s look ahead, ok?

Speaking of ice cream, this flavor is totally my current favorite. Not only is the milk infused with peanut butter and chocolate cereal, but there are also chocolate shavings for texture.

So, I hope you give this ice cream a try! You can even use your most favorite cereal and switch things up a bit here. I have so much confidence in your cereal milk ice cream concoction.

P.S. I might’ve taken the lazy route and bought chocolate shavings at the grocery store, why not, ya know? It was a solid impulse buy.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cereal Milk Ice Cream (makes 1 quart)
Recipe adapated from Momofuku + Jeni, obvz

Ingredients:

cereal milk –

  • 2 1/2 cups chocolate peanut butter cereal*
  • 3 cups whole milk

ice cream –

  • 2 cups cereal milk
  • 1 T + 1 t corn starch
  • 1.5 oz cream cheese softened (3 T)
  • 1/2 t kosher salt
  • 1 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 T corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4-1/2 cup malted milk powder, to taste
  • 3/4 cup chocolate, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chocolate shavings, to churn in

* I used Puffins!

Directions:

  1. Make cereal milk by combining the whole milk with the cereal. Cover with plastic wrap and set a pot on top to keep the cereal submerged. Set at room temperature for one hour. Strain and measure. It should be about 2 cups. Top off with milk if it’s not.
  2. Mix a tablespoon or two of the cereal milk with the cornstarch in a small bowl. Set aside. In a large bowl stir together the salt and the cream cheese. Add peanut butter, malted milk powder, and 3/4 cup chopped chocolate to the bowl.
  3. In a 4 quart saucepan bring the remaining cereal milk, heavy cream, corn syrup, and sugar to a boil. Boil for 4 minutes. Remove from heat and slowly add the corn starch mixture. Return to heat and bring back to a boil for 1 minute or until thickened.
  4. Pour over the cream cheese, salt, peanut butter (and more!) mixture. Whisk until smooth. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for 4 hours.
  5. Freeze in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturers’ directions. When it’s almost done churning pour in the chocolate shavings to mix thoroughly. Transfer to an airtight container. Cover with plastic wrap and a tight lid. Freeze for a few hours or over night. Serve as a post-gym treat.

I just got an ice cream maker and have been looking for excuses to make ice cream out of everything….and this looks like the perfect one!
I would much rather have my cereal in ice cream form!

Awesome! Homemade ice-cream is amazing. (although isn’t almost everything homemade amazing????) I just found your blog Saturday and I already love it! I made one of your recipes yesterday, can I post the recipe and results on my blog with a link?

Happy baking!

PS. Totally obsessed with your typography skills :)

Ok darlin so you’ve made Jeni’s ice cream a few times, but this is my first! How long can I chill the base before churning? 48 hours? Cause that’s what’s going to happen re: my professional and social life tomorrow and it’s still to warm to churn tonight. Which puts me at Thursday! :/

I am so excited to be making this!….. it smells incredible and I LOVE Reece’s Puffs! I’m going to impress my dinner guests :)

Reply

Megan January 29, 2014 at 7:19 pm

Oh yay!! 48 hours should be totally fine! Just whisk it before churning it. Yay! Can’t wait to hear what you think!

Reply

Sophie February 4, 2014 at 3:20 pm

As you promised, chilling for 48 hours worked like a breeze (though I’m not sure SOME people weren’t sneaking spoonfuls from the fridge!). My dinner guests loved the ice cream! Thank you! One even said it was the best ice cream he had ever eaten! It was gone in two days. We loved it! So much easier than a custard base, too. I’m converted :)

And this ice cream.

This is so creative! I love any new ideas for mix-ins since I love making homemade ice cream too. Malted milk powder is the bomb. Peanut butter desserts are the bomb. So, this post is the bomb :)
