Chubby Hubby Ice Cream

Ben & Jerry’s has been in everyone’s freezer for years. This isn’t a coincidence- they’re just THAT good!

We’re taking on the challenge to recreate some of your favorite Ben & Jerry’s flavors completely from scratch!
I had you guys write in on my Instagram Stories (@theicescreamqueen) and tell me what flavors you want to see made homemade!

First up – CHUBBY HUBBY!

I wasn’t too familiar with this flavor and it turns out, it’s pretty hard to find in stores.

Chubby Hubby is vanilla malt ice cream with chocolate and peanut butter covered pretzels and peanut butter and fudge sauces swirled in!

I even ordered the Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream & Dessert Book on Amazon just so we can make this taste as authentic as possible.

Malt powder may be a new ingredient for some! It’s a dissolvable powder commonly mixed into baked goods or even just a plain glass of milk, and is made from malted barley and wheat flours. It gives this really subtle toasty, nutty flavor and works PERFECTLY in this ice cream!

If you do try this out, make sure you get the Carnation Malted Milk Powder and not any flavored versions like Ovaltine!

Check out the video below to watch how it’s made and be sure to subscribe to my YouTube Channel and follow me on Instagram!
