Instructions:

  1. Prepare the ice layer:
    • Add all ice cream ingredients (coconut milk, peanut butter, honey or maple syrup, vanilla extract, and salt) to a high-speed blender. Blend until smooth and creamy.

  3. Prepare the chocolate coating:
    • Melt the chocolate in the microwave or in a bain-marie. If desired, add 2-3 teaspoons of coconut oil to thin the chocolate.
