The Odd Couple.
French Fries and Chocolate Milkshakes.
Peaches and a BBQ grill.
Skinny jeans and stilettos.
What do all these things have in common?
Um, that they are flipping awesome together?!
I offer a poignant example:
I know these two people, you see.
Has sophisticated taste in music. Has no problem rocking out to the Beibs.
Needs their stories to be full of whimsy and fantasy. Needs hard core character development.
Loves animals. Likes their cat. (singular)
Is a creative genius. Is an professional organizer.
Blonde (for today) Brunette (for years)
...Seriously, the list can go on.
One is my best friend, and Two is, well, me. Notice I said "Best Friend" as in these two total opposites not only tolerate each other, but purposely spend hours upon hours together...like all the time.
Obviously, we have to have some things in common or our hang out sessions would be short lived.
Things like 60's fashion, The Walking Dead, and cupcakes help make up for the times we spend TWO hours trying to pick a movie. ("[Insert 80's Movie Suggestion here]." "Oh, I'm not really into the 80's." "Eighties?? :)" "Um, I said no." "80's!!!" "That's it. Molly Ringwald is going down!")
One thing we have always been able to agree upon is Peanut Butter.
How awesome is PB? Am I right?!
Peanut Butter and Jelly.
Peanut Butter in a Milkshake.
Peanut Butter on a spoon.
Peanut Butter and...Marshmallow?
Two things I would have never thought to put together, yet the combination seems so....ordained.
How did I not know about this till like a year ago????? What kind of childhood did I endure? To not be introduced to the "Fluffernutter?" This is an utter travesty, I tell you.
So what is a peanut butter lover to do?
Whip up the most peanut buttery ice cream on the planet! That's what.
Seriously, this two-ingredient ice cream is like the best thing ever!
....Add some marshmallow fluff to rectify childhood trauma,
....Top it off with leftover brownie batter for good measure,
Earth shattering, I know.
-1 can (14 oz) Sweetened Condensed Milk
-2 cups Heavy Whipping
-1/2 cup Peanut Butter
-1/2 cup Marshamallow Fluff
-Prepared Edible Brownie Batter:
1/4 Box Brownie Mix
2 Tbsp Butter
1 Tbsp Water
Mix together and roll into bite sized bits.
1) Place large mixing bowl in freezer. (It helps when whipping the heavy cream). While waiting for
bowl to chill (approx. 10 min), in a medium sized mixing bowl beat 1/2 cup peanut butter and 1 can
sweetened condensed milk until well blended. *1/2 cup is a LOT of peanut butter. Use 1/4 cup for
a less overwhelming flavor.
2) After peanut butter and condensed milk are combined add in 1/2 cup marshmallow fluff. Mix/beat
till just combined. Do not over mix.
3) Take large bowl out of freezer and beat 2 cups heavy cream till stiff peaks form. Fold peanut butter
mixture into whipped cream. Add brownie bits, folding till dispersed throughout.
4) Place mixture into a covered container (tupperware, etc.) and place in freezer. Freeze overnight.
Prepare to have your peanut butter lover socks knocked off.
