Photo tutorial - How to make Peanut Butter Ice Cream

So last week I got an ice cream maker (talked about in my previous post) and a couple of ice cream recipe books.  Out of the three I got (Weinstein, Lebovitz and Cohen & Greenfield) my favourite is the one by Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield (it could be because I’m obsessed with Ben & Jerry’s).  Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream and Dessert Book has tons of flavour possibilities, I decided to combine a couple to make Peanut Butter and Brownie Ice Cream.  This ice cream is absolutely delicious!  The texture is perfect like any other premium ice cream you get from the store.
Below is a picture tutorial on how to make this wonderful tasting ice cream.  The recipe is at the bottom.

Peanut Butter and Brownie Ice Cream
First you need to start by making your favourite brownie recipe.  Once the brownies have cooled, cut it into chunks and put them into the freezer.
Secondly choose your favourite ice cream base. Mine is:
2 eggs
2 cups, whipping cream
1 cup, homogenized milk 
3/4 cup, sugar
Follow steps in the picture tutorial.
You will need between 1/3 - 1/2 cup of peanut butter, smooth 
or chunky.  
Once you have incorporated the eggs, sugar, milk and cream, you 
need to take some of the mixture and mix it with the peanut butter.  
Once that is smooth add it back into the main mixture.  
Pour the mixture into the ice cream maker and follow the directions
provided with your machine.
With two minutes left add the brownies.  You might have to stop the machine and fold the brownies in by hand.  
Put the mixture into an airtight container and put into the freezer until it reaches the consistency you desire.
Scoop and Enjoy!
