We have a confession to make: we love peanut butter. That was probably one of the worst kept secrets in the world, but we feel good about sharing. And we’re not scared to say we think it belongs in our ice cream, especially when the peanut butter comes in cup form.
We’ve taken the liberty of making a flavor with chocolate cups, but we think there’s a lot of untapped deliciousness yet to be scooped. We suggest you grab yourself some peanut butter cups from Justin’s and try the flavor combinations below.
Vanilla + Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups
Vanilla and dark chocolate may seem like polar opposites, but they work together deliciously when there’s some peanut butter to help overcome their differences.
Milk & Cookies + Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups
We call this one the “After School Delight.” Why? Because it puts two of our favorite childhood snacks on one spoon at the same time.
S’mores + White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups
There’s something kind of perfect about ending your night with a campfire and some S’mores. Add some white chocolate and peanut butter to that equation and you’ve just managed to make a great thing even better.
Vanilla Caramel Fudge + Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups
We could say this combination tastes like springtime in Versailles, but we won’t. First, that would be pretentious. Second, the mix of caramel swirls and dark chocolate is totally autumn in Prague.
Cake Batter + Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups
Have you ever licked some cake batter off a mixing spoon only to find yourself saying, “Dang. This could really use some peanut butter cups”? We’ve been there, but this combo ensures we won’t ever go back.
Peanut Butter World® + Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups
Available exclusively at your local Target store, Peanut Butter World® could not be a better companion for Justin’s cups. Particularly because Ben & Jerry’s and Justin’s were both hand picked to be part of Target’s Made to Matter collection – a group of better-for-you and better-for-the-world products that you can feel good about. With milk chocolate ice cream, peanut buttery swirls and chocolate cookie swirls, Peanut Butter World® jives with Justin’s like no other.
Ok. We know we said this article was about Peanut Butter Cups, but Justin’s also makes some nut butters that taste pretty great when mixed with our ice cream. Our suggestion? Make a donut-shaped mound of your favorite Ben & Jerry’s flavor, drop a dollop of your favorite Justin’s Nut Butter in the middle, mix it all up and go to town.
These were our favorite combinations, but we’re sure there are tons more we didn’t even think about. That’s where you come in! Start experimenting and share your results with us on Twitter at @benandjerrys.
