This is the best and creamiest ice cream ever. It is absolutely delicious. It tastes a lot like a very popular candy bar that is chocolate with peanut butter in it. Only, there is NO peanut butter in the recipe because of allergies to peanuts. If there is no peanut allergy in your home, you could substitute Peanut Butter for the Sunbutter. You would never know the difference, tho, as sunbutter is made from sunflower seeds and tastes so much like peanut butter. There is lower sugar in this recipe for diabetics.

Peanut flavor / Peanut-free!
(Recipe and Photo by: Dan and Marlene Gilliam)
1/3 cup sunbutter
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/3 cup baking Stevia or sweetener of your choice
1/2 cup brown sugar
8 large egg yolks
1 pinch salt
1 quart half-and-half
2 tsp vanilla
Beat 8 egg yolks with half of the sugar and set aside.
Heat one quart of half and half over medium heat till nearly boiling.
Add the remaining ingredients (Cocoa, Sunbutter, remainder of sugars, salt and vanilla) and stir till well mixed. Add a cup of hot mix to egg yolks very slowly, while stirring. Then stir the rest of the egg mixture into the pot of hot milk mix slowly, while stirring and continue to stir until it thickens to a custard texture. Remove from heat and cool pan in bowl of iced water till mix is cool.
Place in ice cream freezer and process until frozen.
NOTE: You can also substitute more of the sugar with sweetener if you want. And substitute Peanut Butter for the Sunbutter if no one in your family has peanut allergies.
