Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream

While in Washington I got an ice cream maker and put it to use as soon as we got home. This was the first batch of ice cream I made, and it turned out great! It was inspired by Tillamook's chocolate peanut butter. It's a chocolate ice cream with peanut butter swirled into it. It's one of my favorite flavors!

1 cup whole milk
1/2 cup granulated sugar
8 oz your favorite chocolate chips (I used semi-sweet, but use whatever you like)
2 cups heavy cream, well chilled
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup peanut butter (give or take... it depends on how peanut butter-y you want it)
Heat the milk until it is just bubbling around the edges. 
In a blender or food processor pulse to process the sugar and the chocolate until very finely chopped. 
Add the hot milk; process until well blended and smooth. 
Transfer to a medium bowl and let the chocolate mixture cool completely (I put it in the fridge). 
Stir in the heavy cream and vanilla to taste. Chill in the fridge for 30 minutes or longer.
Pour mixture into ice cream machine and churn for 25-30 minutes. 
Once done, take out mixture and swirl peanut butter throughout ice cream.
Place in freezer for a few hours to harden. Enjoy!
