Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream

I love my ice cream maker. It's so much fun and if I am making a Philadelphia style (no custard) ice cream, it only takes a few minutes to make. This ice cream is one of those really quick ones with only a handful of ingredients, besides Peanut Butter and Chocolate are a match made in heaven.

  • Cream 10%, half and half - 2 cups
  • Unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder - 1/4 cup
