No Churn Chocolate Ice Cream with Salty Candied Peanuts

Creamy chocolate ice cream filled with crunchy sweet and salty candied peanuts.  No ice cream maker needed! I was hesitant to make an ice cream that Matt wouldn’t like (ahem, peanut hater), but ultimately I couldn’t resist.  Besides, he’d choose a vanilla base any day while I am a sucker for chocolate.  Especially when that […]
