Peanut Butter on ice cream

Ok since alot of people seemed to comment on my peanut butter melted on ice cream in my last post...

This is my own creation. I'll try peanut butter with anything once. I take vanilla ice cream and start scooping it up into a bowl. In the meantime there is peanut butter melting in the microwave. Vanilla ice cream from Schwans is the best. More expensive, but well worth it. If you don't have a Schwans ice cream truck that comes to your door - I'm sorry for your loss.

The peanut butter trick - for years I just melted it in a cup, but honestly it is the worst thing to clean up. I refrained from having my favorite treat because of the clean up. So I had a brainstorm. Take a spoonful of peanut butter and put it into a sandwich baggie. Fold the baggie and microwave it for about 40 seconds. Make sure it's all melted good. Take a snip out of the corner of the bag.... pour onto the ice cream! And the best part? Throw the baggie away! No mess.

I also add chocolate (Nestle Quik is the best), but always add the peanut butter first because the cold ice cream will cool the hot peanut butter... and the chocolate (which I keep in the fridge even before initially opened) will cool it from the top.

Now, if you like chocolate, peanut butter and ice cream I suggest not trying this at home. Seriously. Instant addiction. And don't come back and yell at me. I warned you.

Sounds good. Might clog a few arteries, but still good.
