Welcome!

Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

This is something my mom's been making for years. 
It's one of my dad's favorite things. The only thing she 
DIDN'T do was put in the peanut butter cups and the chocolate. That was ALL me. I think you just can't improve on peanut butter except to add MORE peanut butter. And chocolate. 
Chocolate and peanut butter are BFF's.

Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream



1 Quart French Vanilla Coffee Creamer
2 cans sweetened condensed milk
1 cup peanut butter
1 8-ounce container Cool Whip Topping
1 - 2 quarts half and half
2  8-ounce packages mini-mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cups (You want the teeny ones)
1 14-ounce jar chocolate ice cream topping

In a medium sized bowl, combine the peanut butter with about a cup of the half and half with a whisk until smooth.

Pour the peanut butter mixture, sweetened condensed milk and Cool Whip into your ice cream freezer. Stir with a whisk until combined.

Pour in enough half and half to reach the fill line.

Freeze according to manufacturer's directions.

When is ice cream is done, stir in the mini-mini peanut butter cups. Then drizzle in the chocolate topping and swirl with a knife.

 
Here's all the goodness.


 
Mix the peanut butter with some half & half to smooth it out.


 
Like this. I think I added about a cup of 
the half & half to the peanut butter.


 
Then add the peanut butter mixture, 
the sweetened condensed milk, the Cool Whip 
and the coffee creamer to your ice cream maker.


 
Then top it off with some half and half to the fill line. 
Let 'er rip!!


 
After my ice cream was done, I put it in 
a plastic container then added the 
mini-mini peanut butter cups....


 
...then I drizzled in the chocolate. 
I warmed the chocolate in the 
microwave to make it drizzle-able.


 
Then I swirled it with a knife. 
I let it set up in the freezer over night.


 
Then I got this!! Oh the yumminess!!!
