Salty Nuts Ice Cream recipe peanut-butter-ice-cream-scoop Salty Nuts Ice Cream Salty Nuts Ice Cream topped with sea salt Salty Nuts Ice Cream When I was little my Dad used to make these mini peanut butter and jelly sandwiches out of Ritz crackers. It was one of my favorite all time snacks. I still am very much into peanut butter and jelly. Now I love crunchy peanut butter and raspberry jelly on grainy wheat bread. So delicious. Being a big peanut butter fan I freaking love this ice cream. So creamy and so salty, this ice cream is the best peanut butter ice cream I have had. Why? Because it’s perfectly balanced. Let me explain. A lot of peanut butter ice creams out there call for too much peanut butter, and then paired with the cream and sugar, it just becomes too much. This ice cream is is definitely peanut – buttery, but not too much so. If you have ritz on hand, you should absolutely make some ice cream sandwiches. It helps too if you assemble the sandwiches and stick them back in the freezer for a bit so they don’t become a melty mess. :)

    I love your ice cream container. Does it store ice cream in the freezer well? Where did you get it?

    Gorgeous! I love peanut butter and love it on crackers. Ritz, Triscuits, you name it, I’ve never met a combo I didn’t like.

    Teri Lyn also wanted to tell you I’ve been reading Adrianna’s Pancake book, a new book about Mugcakes I just got, and also one about Pies – and have seen your photography in all of them (just getting through some books I received months ago) and just wanted to say…gorgeous. And Jenny, your styling is stunning as well. Those authors are so lucky to have you!

    I know exactly what you mean about the peanut butter being too much! I must try this out – balance is everything, in ice cream and in life.

    Do u have any ice cream recipes for those of us who don’t have machines? I hope, I hope!

      Unfortunately we don’t…but you can use the stir and freeze method. You make the ice cream base per the directions then pour it into a deep baking dish. Freeze the base for about an hour, remove from freezer and quickly stir or whisk together (an electric blender would be best). Continue this process for the next few hours until the ice cream has begun to set up. The results won’t be as creamy (as you’ll get some ice crystal formation) and smooth as with using an ice cream machine, but it’ll still be tasty ice cream nonetheless! Good luck!

    We made this ice cream and it’s FANTASTIC. The texture is amazing, especially since you don’t have to do the traditional custard first. We stirred in chocolate covered pretzels and peanuts right at the end, and it was amazing. We will make this recipe on the reg.

    Gorgeous post, as always! Gotta love the sweet and salty combination…yum!
