Welcome to day 3 of #IceCreamWeek!  Today's treat from me to you is one of Grumpy's favorites!  Pistachio-Cherry No Churn Ice Cream

Pistachio-Cherry No Churn Ice Cream

Welcome to Day 3 of Ice Cream Week 2014! This year the event is hosted by Kim of Cravings of a Lunatic and Susan of  The Girl in the Little Red Kitchen. We have teamed up with 25 amazing bloggers to treat you to tons of amazing ice cream recipes. Ice Cream Week is shaping up to be the best week ever!
No churn ice cream is a new concept for me. I grew up going to Saturday Night Ice Cream Socials but at those socials, we always churned our ice cream, so I had no idea I could ever accomplish a creamy ice cream without churning it!  This Pistachio-Cherry No Churn Ice Cream was my first attempt and it turned out pretty creamy and amzaing!
Grumpy's favorite ice cream flavor is pistachio.  Anytime we have gone out for ice cream, that is always the flavor he wants.  If we get to a stand and there is no pistacho, he pouts :)  So, I couldn't let Ice Cream Week go by without making his favorite flavor.  To kick it up a little bit and to add some more color, I added some fresh pitted cherries.  As a child, my favorite shake flavor to get at the ice cream stand was cherry.  I loved the bits of cherry that would clog up my straw.  So, in honor of two of our favorites, I have created this recipe for you.  I hope you enjoy it!

Kickin' Peach Milkshake #IceCreamWeek

8 Comments
Links to this post
Today I decided to share with you one of my favorite fruit flavors - peach. I also decided to kick it up a notch with a little bit of peach schnapps for a Kickin' Peach Milkshake!


Welcome to day 2 of Ice Cream Week 2014! This year the event is hosted by Kim of Cravings of a Lunatic and Susan of  The Girl in the Little Red Kitchen. We have teamed up with 25 amazing bloggers to bring you ice cream treats all week long. It's going to be an epic week full of frozen treats and our sponsors for the event have provided us with some great prizes.
Today's shake is part of day two of this amazing giveaway.  I'm sharing with you this week some of my most favorite ice cream treats and flavors.  While blueberry is my favorite fruit, when it comes to shakes, peach and cherry are at the top of my list!  I decided to make this shake an adult drink by adding some Peachtree Schnapps.  Have you ever smelled that stuff?  Peachy heaven!  I used some local donut peaches to make this shake and was it ever delicious.  Just four simple ingredients and you have yourself a summer cool down with amazing peach flavor.
You can make this kid friendly by not adding the booze, but I definitely suggest you add a little bit of peach extract or maybe almond extract to the mix if you leave out the booze.  While peaches have great flavor, when you blend them in with the ice cream, you need to give it a little more "something something" if your know what I mean!

Salted Caramel Peanut Butter Buster Bars #caramel #peanutbutter #IceCreamWeek
One of my favorite treats as a child when we would go out for ice cream would be the Peanut Butter Buster Bar from Dairy Queen.  Now, as an adult, I don't really indulge in ice cream all to often because my system doesn't tolerate it well.  However, I love ice cream and I decided I would participate in #IceCreamWeek along with several blogging friends this year, and my first creation was an adaptation of the Buster Bar with the Salted Caramel Peanut Butter Twist!
Salted Caramel Peanut Butter Buster Bars #caramel #peanutbutter #IceCreamWeek
The DQ Buster Bar is layers of ice cream, spanish peanuts, and fudge.  The Salted Caramel Peanut Butter Buster Bar is layers of salted caramel flavored peanuts, a peanut butter caramel sauce, and ice cream, dipped in butterscotch!
Salted Caramel Peanut Butter Buster Bars #caramel #peanutbutter #IceCreamWeekI had a little bit of difficulty coating the bars with the butterscotch as you can see from the quite rustic and messy look of these bars!  I tried to find a butterscotch flavored Magic Shell but was unable to find anything but rootbeer and chocolate flavors.  So I went with butterscotch chips that I melted down some with shortening to make the dip smoother.  For the peanut butter caramel I mixed together equal parts of crunchy peanut butter and caramel sauce.  To offset all the sugar in the caramel fudge and butterscotch chips, I went with a sugar free ice cream.  

I made these bars when Chris was here for a short visit and he happily devoured one.  Grumpy thought they were too sweet.  I thought they were just right, however I ate mine by cutting off pieces at different times when I thought I wanted a taste rather than eating it all at once.  I would definitely make these again and I would do my best to find some magic shell to dip these in!

Salted Caramel Peanut Butter Buster Bars

Published 08/18/2014
Salteld Caramel Peanut Butter Buster Bars

Ingredients

  • 3 cups vanilla ice cream (I used sugar free)
  • 1 cup salted caramel flavored peanuts
  • 1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup jarred caramel sauce
  • 3 tablespoons solid shortening
  • 1/2 bag Butterscotch chips
  • 4 small coffee cup sized paper cups
  • 4 popsicle sticks

Instructions

  1. Soften ice cream slightly by letting the box sit on your counter for about 10 minutes.
  2. In bottom of cup, place a layer of peanuts.
  3. Next layer with 1/4 cup of ice cream. Place 1/4 cup of peanut butter carmel fudge on top of ice cream.
  4. Layer 1/2 of ice cream on top of fudge. Place popsicle stick in cup until almost to bottom. Cover with plactic wrap and freeze overnight.
  5. When ready to coat buster bars, melt butterscotch chips and shortening over double boiler stirring until smooth. Remove from heat and carefully spoon butterscotch over buster bars. Immediately place in freezer.
  6. Note: If you can find a butterscotch magic shell, I highly recommend using this as it will not cause melting of the ice cream and you won't have a mess!

Cook time: 08 hrs. 00 mins.
Total time: 8 hrs. 20 mins.
