Strawberry Sauce Reese’s Ice Cream

Strawberry sauce and roughly chopped Reese's Peanut Butter Cups come together to form the most perfect birthday frozen ice cream treat.

It’s that very special day of the year again; that one day when I simply must release the leftover Halloween Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups from their frozen dungeon, so that they can join us for B.O.B. Bob’s birthday celebration. Happy Birthday B.O.B. Bob. If you’ve been following along with us throughout the years, I’m sure by now that you remember just how much B.O.B. Bob adores Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups or basically anything containing peanut butter and chocolate. Last year, I made him Butterfinger to the Extreme Ice Cream for his big 40+something day and it instantly became a bit hit in our house and a frequently requested do-over from both B.O.B. Bob and several other ice cream loving individuals.

Since ice cream was such a huge hit last year, I figured why not do it all over again? Especially with Sweet Strawberry Rhubarb Sauce still hanging around from last week. What could be better than a peanut butter and jelly sweet birthday frozen treat with chocolate thrown into the mix to make it even more fantastic? I mean really ya’ll, it’s a tough act to follow. Even Brenna’s delightful annual birthday dance to her daddy has a hard time measuring up to this heavenly pink frozen loveliness. Not to mention, unlike Brenna’s dancing, this ice cream doesn’t result in scratches and a general feeling of hate and displeasure towards me for days on end. Do you see how I suffer for you B.O.B. Bob? You’re worth every little scratch my love; happy birthday.

Directions:

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the cream, milk, strawberry sauce, sugar, vanilla, and salt.
  2. If using food coloring, add just enough to make the ice cream a light shade of pink. It won’t take much.
  3. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
  4. Churn the mixture in an ice cream machine for 15 to 25 minutes, or until frozen.
  5. In a medium bowl, use a silicone spatula to fold the chopped peanut butter cups into the ice cream.
  6. Spoon the ice cream into freezer safe containers and freeze for at least 24 hours before serving.

Suggestions:

  • You can use a store-bought strawberry sauce in this recipe, however, I suggest using Sweet Strawberry Rhubarb Sauce.
  • I used pink gel food coloring to tint this ice cream. I prefer gel food coloring to liquid food coloring; it doesn’t alter the consistency of most recipes.
  • It is possible to eat this ice cream as soon as it has been churned, however, it will be very soft and melt quickly.
  • You can use roughly chopped full-size peanut butter cups in this recipe, or replace with a miniature variety.
