Peanut Butter Ice Cream with Dark Chocolate Shell

I know some people who are in complete agony over the existence of football season – which I pretend to understand. I on the other hand couldn’t be more stoked! Not only is it a welcomed distraction from thinking about/writing/studying for my dissertation in 2 weeks, but it gives me an excuse to indulge in peanut butter and chocolate things. Not to mention all the other glorious football foods that hang around this time of year.

This season, the Buckeyes have yet to have a game scheduled on the Big Ten Network, making it much easier for me to locate a venue for viewing their games (still don’t have internet or cable of any kind at home). Guess that’s a perk to being preseason ranked in the top 5. Even though it wasn’t really a close game last week against Buffalo, I hope they play better today against San Diego State.

Moving on to this ice cream. It’s really just peanut butter flavored whipped topping, but the resulting combination is a creamy, deceptively sinful tasting treat. But of course it wouldn’t be Peanut Butter and Chocolate Saturday without some chocolate, so how about a dark chocolate shell to go with your “ice cream”? You’re welcome.
