or fully cooled.
4. Place into ice cream maker for about 10 min. Watch the thickness of the ice cream and add the peanut butter in at about 5 min. If you wait till its almost done and very thick the peanut butter will not mix well.
5. You can serve immediately for a soft serve ice cream or put ice cream into a glass container and let set in freezer for a few hours until it hardens. I garnished mine with cacao nibs and some honey!
