As predicted, once I started I can't stop. This is my second ice cream in as many days, with plans to make another batch tomorrow. But when it is this easy and this good, there's nothing stopping me. And until my freezer gets full or my waistline gets thick, I can't stop and won't stop.
Today I give you the Columbus favorite, the Buckeye State. With all the flavors of the candy, and in homage to the team, this ice cream deserves the title (or maybe the team deserves the ice cream?). Anyways, this will just about knock your socks off, because as my Mom says, "This tastes exactly like a Reese's Cup!" But better Mom, way better.
Buckeye State Ice Cream from Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream at Home
2 cups whole milk
1 TB plus 1 tsp cornstarch
1-1/2 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup peanut butter
1-1/4 cups heavy cream
2/3 cups sugar
2 TB light corn syrup
2 TB honey
4 oz. chocolate (55% to 70%) chopped
Then make it per Jeni's instructions! It literally only takes about an hour, total. So fast and easy, it's a bit scary. I might not be able to stop. Ever.
