Sweet Friday!

Today is the beginning of a long weekend with Kyle. You can never go wrong with a 4 day weekend! Yesterday we had a very quiet Valentine's Day at home just relaxing, which was exactly what we wanted. We are heading off to the outlet mall today because I am in desperate need of some new clothes. Plus it will be nice to just walk around and browse. Oh and the new Planet Fitness finally opened so we can get our memberships and start going. Yay!

I did however make some of the most delicious ice cream I have ever tasted:

Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream. OMG!!! Here is the super easy recipe:

1-1/2 cups smooth peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1-1/2 cup whole milk
2 cups heavy cream
1 cup mini peanut butter cups, chopped

Using a KitchenAid Stand Mixer, cream peanut butter sugar together until smooth (about one minute on medium speed). Turn the mixer off then add the whole milk. Mix on low until most of the liquid has mixed with the peanut butter mixture--mix for a good 2-3 minutes until it's a thinned out peanut butter consistency. Add the heavy cream and mix for 30 seconds or until incorporated.

Pour ice cream mixture into ice cream machine and churn according to manufacturers directions. *I use the KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker Attachment and this batch churned for 25 minutes. The ice cream will be the consistency of soft serve. Carefully, fold in chopped peanut butter cups, store in an airtight container in the freezer for up to one week.

I am surprised that there is any left because it's that good, definitely make it. :)

I hope you all have an amazing weekend!
