Chubby Wifey ice cream

IMG_0738

Do you all know about Ben & Jerry's "Suggest A Flavor" on their website?
This is the place, when you think you've got the next newest, baddest, craziest, and best selling ice cream flavor!
My Chubby Wifey flavor is a homage, (or evil twin?) to the Chubby Hubby.
Why should Chubby Hubby have all the fun, all the domination? Right?
I will strongly suggest to Mr. Ben and Mr. Jerry, that they should make this ice cream as the perfect mate to the infamous Chubby Hubby ice cream.

So fingers crossed, let's hope they notice my crazy yet tasty concoction.

On the "Resurrect A Flavor" section, which one would you bring back?
I was amazed at how many flavors have died.
I miss the Mint with Oreo Cookies.
What flavor do you miss?

I made this ice cream eggless, using condensed milk--it's really quite easy since there is no custard making to do.
But if you prefer a custard base, the results would be just as good.
I prefer the quick and easy route when it's 86 degrees and 76% humidity.

Chubby Wifey Ice Cream
print recipe

chocolate ice cream base:
1/2 cup sugar
2 TB double Dutch cocoa powder
small pinch of sea salt
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
2 cups half & half
1 cup heavy cream

peanut butter swirls:
½ cup +/- chunky or smooth peanut butter

cheddar cheese pretzels:
I used about ¾ cup of cheddar filled pretzels (from Combo’s brand)

Cook notes: I added in the peanut butter swirls by hand. If I add them to the ice cream maker while it’s churning, I found they just dissolve. I like to see and taste peanut butter swirls.

In a medium bowl, mix together the sugar, cocoa powder, salt and condensed milk. Mix until lumps from cocoa powder are gone.
Add in the half and half and heavy cream, mix. Cover, and set in fridge to let flavors blend a bit. At least an hour or longer.
Pour mixture into ice cream maker and follow manufactures directions.
The last 2 minutes of churning add in the pretzels.
Do these next steps rather fast:
Pour half of ice cream mixture into large glass or ceramic bowl, drizzle the peanut butter over the ice cream, place remaining ice cream on top. Cover and place in freezer immediately.
Should make a little over a quart.

  1. omg. you didn't.

    the cocoa, the PB, the heavy cream AND those Combos (I love Combos - won't even buy them I love them so much!)

    This is Definitely worth it's namesake and B & J's needs to sell this!

  4. Needs a better name, though. Stout Spouse? Burly Girly? Weighty Matey?

    I LOVE using condensed milk! It totally feels like I'm cheating! Have you tried using coconut milk? Very similar effect and results, and your vegan buddies wil LOVE you.

  9. I would love to see Festivus return for the holidays, or forever.

  10. Oh yes, mint with oreos IS such a great flavor. But THIS may be even better. And the name alone won me over. Considering my hubby can eat whatever he pleases and and have no body fat (jerk) the name is appropriate :) You can't go wrong with chocolate and PB. Will have to make this asap. Thanks!

  15. Okay, this sound better than I thought when I saw it on FB, I thought it was Cheetos, not the cheesey pretzels. I would totally try it. And I love making ice cream the easy way with condensed milk. Chubby Wifey, that would be me. ;)

  27. had i never seen this post and had ben and jerry come out with a customer-created combo-containing ice cream, i would've asked you if you had suggested it. no lie--this is you, through and through, and it sounds amazing! i miss the flavor that was cinnamon ice cream with oatmeal cookies scattered throughout...

    ReplyDelete
  28. OMG, I haven't had a combo since university - i loved them! I also love Chubby Hubby so this sounds interesting and I'd definitely give it a go!

    ReplyDelete

  30. Chubby Hubby is my favorite ice cream! I submitted a flavor idea once and they ended up releasing something similar and send me coupons for free ice cream :) Yay for Chubby Wifey!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Hehe.. chubby wifey. Sounds like the perfect complement to Chubby Hubby :)

    I love pretzels, but I've never had them in ice cream.. the salty and sweet combination is probably killer! Awesome.
