4 c. half and half (I used fat free)
1/2 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
1 c. white sugar
dash of salt
1 c. creamy peanut butter
1/4 c. chocolate sprinkles (optional)
Whisk together the half and half, cocoa powder, sugar and salt in a large saucepan. Heat over med/high heat, stirring frequently until it comes to a rolling boil and begins to foam up. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter until thoroughly blended. Chill mixture completely (overnight is best) and then freeze in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturers instructions, adding the sprinkles (if using) during the last couple of minutes. Makes 7 cups of ice cream.

Notes: This was my first time making homemade ice cream and it turned out great! I was a little leery of using fat free half and half but you would never tell the difference...it was super rich and creamy! The only thing I'll do differently next time is add less sugar. It was a little too sweet for my taste. I'll cut it down to 3/4 a cup or maybe even 1/2 a cup. Overall I was really happy with it. I absolutely love ice cream so I'm excited to try out lots of new recipes! Let me know if you have a favorite that you think I should try...
