peanut butter balls

The peanut butter bits in yesterdays ice cream are actually made separately.  I modified another recipe from David Lebovitz.  Okay, so I did the exact opposite of his suggested ingredients but soooo  good.  

My one suggestion:  Do not tell anyone the peanut butter balls are in the freezer!  Why do you say?  Because my Beloved and myself had a hard time not eating these by themselves!

I really like moose tracks ice cream.  Moose tracks is vanilla ice cream, fudge and peanut butter cups swirled through.  I was thinking on my bicycle ride home from work I could make my own peanut butter cups with this as the middle.  And then make my own moose tracks ice cream.  Yes, I am that person.

Peanut butter drops or balls or patties

2/3 cup peanut butter (I used fresh ground peanut butter)

2 - 4 tablespoons powdered sugar (if you use Skippy's or Jif, use less.  if you use an old fashioned style, more)

In a bow, put the peanut butter and powdered sugar.  Mix together.

Drop on a plate in the shape you wish.  Freeze.  

Once frozen, put into ice cream or put in a ziploc bag for other creations.  

See those light colored bits?  Those are the peanut butter drops.  OMG!  

I cannot tell you how long they last in the freezer because we did not have any leftovers.

Moose tracks, here I come!
