Tin Roof Ice Cream

Ben and Erin invited us over to their place for a barbeque yesterday after Tim and Ben returned from mountain biking in Sentul City, just outside of Jakarta.  Ben made some awesome barbeque shrimp, beer boiled brats and barbeque chicken.  My contribution was an arugula salad with goat cheese, walnuts and cranberries, but more importantly, dessert.

Since we still don't have an oven in our apartment, I decided to bust out my ice cream machine (plugged in via transformer, of course).  Since peanuts are so prevalent here in Indonesia (kacang in everything from satay to dessert!), I decided to make something that involved them.  Tin roof ice cream it was! 

Rich vanilla ice cream (vanilla beans are so cheap here!!) with streak of fudge running throughout, scattered with chocolate-covered dry roasted peanuts.  Mmmmmm...  as usual, David Lebovitz's's ice cream recipes are perfection.
