Reeses PB cup homemade ice cream


Hello friends! Happy Tuesday! I have a yummy homemade ice cream recipe for you today! It reached 100 degrees in AZ this week, so it’s definitely ice cream time!

I took one of my families favorite recipes and combined it with my favorite candy…reeses peanut butter cups! This ice cream is super easy to make and contains NO eggs! This recipe tastes amazing without the reeses as well. Feel free to mix in your favorite toppings. :)

Easy and delicious reeses peanut butter ice cream

Homemade ice cream


  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 3/4 cups milk
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 3/4 cups sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 10 reeses peanut butter cups (chopped)


1. Combine all ingredients (except reeses) in a medium sized pan over medium heat. Bring to a slight boil, stirring constantly and then remove from heat. Stir until the sugar crystals are dissolved. Allow to cool.
2. Place cream in your ice cream maker and begin to churn the ice cream. As soon as the ice cream looks like frozen yogurt, (about 20 minutes in) add the chopped reese's peanut butter cups. 3. 3. Continue mixing until you reach a desired consistency. Store ice cream in a air tight container.


Delicious homemade ice cream with 5 simple ingredients!

I have to mention that I LOVE my new KitchenAid ice cream maker attachment. It was so easy to use. I’m glad I no longer need to use ice and salt! With my old ice cream maker, the salt some how ALWAYS ended up in my ice cream. Don’t ask me how. You do have to plan ahead though and freeze the bowl before making your ice cream.

    Yay for the heat wave coming! We were 95 up here by Park City, UT…which is really warm for us this high. Love this recipe for homemade ice cream! It’s definitely that time of year!

    We always made ice cream when I was growing up. It was a really big deal and so, so good. Thank you for sharing this!

    This looks delicious Jamielyn! I have a question- do you think it would work to mix and cook it ahead of time and keep in the fridge until I’m ready to make in the ice cream maker? Thank you!

    • Jamielyn posted on June 5, 2013 at 8:20 pm (#

      Yes, I think that would still work great. Just stir it before pouring into the ice cream maker. :)
