It's Kelly's sister's birthday soon! Another reason to love Summer. In sis's honor we've created a special flavor that she would absolutely adore: Reese's Peanut Butter Cup!
Our recipe specifically uses Reese's brand peanut butter cups since it is a family favorite, and with this birthday treat we wanted to keep the nostalgia on 100. You can use any other brand you like, but really, why would you?
Pay attention to the special tips below about which type of peanut butter is best for this. It's a deal breaker! Kelly and her sis are peanut butter OBSESSED so you trust us on this advice.
If you're nuts for nuts, we cannot wait for you to try this salty, chocolatey, nutty, creamy, crunchy bomb of flavor combos and contrasts! Happy Birthday sis. You're the sweetest inspiration for one of our favorite flavors yet.
Tip: Don’t use natural peanut butter (ie – the kind that is gritty and tends to separate in the jar). You want to use the super smooth, thick stuff like Jif or Skippy.
To make your own peanut butter magic shell topping: Take a ¼ cup of peanut butter and 1 tablespoon of coconut oil and microwave 30 seconds or until melted. Stir to combine and drizzle over your ice cream scoops. It’ll harden immediately because of the cold ice cream. Kick it up a notch by adding chopped peanuts to the liquid shell mixture to make it crunchy!
