Peanut Pops

It’s freakin hot in nyc and we all long for ice cream right? We made these delicious peanut pops and added a little splash and crumble… after all, that’s what food styling’s been about lately. Did we stop in time :D?HaveaYummyDay22SusannaBlavarg072copy2HaveaYummyDay2SusannaBlavargg093

Peanut Pops

Ca 5 pops

  • 6 egg yolks
  • 1 vanilla pod
  • 3/4 cup/1,75 dl sugar
  • 2 cups/5 dl heavy cream
  • 1 cup/2 1/2 dl milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 60 g peanut butter (2 small bags)
  • 150 g milk chocolate
  • 50 g salty peanuts
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt

Whisk the egg yolks and half of the sugar lightly in a bowl. In a pan, combine the rest of the sugar, heavy cream, the cut and scraped vanilla bean, milk and salt. Heat until it simmers. Pour two spoons of the cream mixture into the egg bowl while whisking. Slowly pour the egg mixture into the pan while whisking. Heat until it simmers. Remove the vanilla bean and add the peanut butter.  Chill the mixture until cold.

Pour the ice cream into ice pop molds. Put wooden sticks into the molds and put the molds in the freezer overnight. Loosen the pops by quickly pouring lukewarm water over it and carefully try to loosen them. Put them on a plate or a small tray and put them back in the freezer. Chop and melt the chocolate in the microwave in intervals, stir every now and then as not to burn it. Dip the ice pops in the chocolate one after another and sprinkle peanuts and sea salt over them before the chocolate has hardened. You have to be quick here. Eat the ice cream right away, or keep them in airtight jars in the freezer. You can also put each ice cream in a cellophane bag and tie with a cotton thread.

    • We used silicon molds made for ice cream pops, I actually don’t remember where we bought ours, it’s been a while, but I’m sure you can find similar on the internet. Happy ice cream making!
