Father's Day Dessert: Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream

Jun 16, 2015

Treat dad with something sweet this Father’s Day and serve this Peanut Butter Cup Ice cream. This recipe is so easy with only 10 minutes of preparation time, and it can be made several days in advance. Substitute crushed cookies or your favorite candy bar for the peanut butter cups if you wish. Store in Ziploc® Brand Containers with One Press Seal for up to one week, but I guarantee there won’t be many leftovers for long!
