Peanutty-Choco Ice Cream Sammies
- whole original flavored pretzel crisps [see cooks note below]
- 2 1/2 c
- semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 c
- chopped salted peanuts
- 2 1/2 tsp
- solid vegetable shortening divided
- 3-4 Tbsp
- heavy whipping cream
- 1 pt
- premium vanilla ice cream
If you need to thin the chocolate a bit more, I recommend adding heavy cream 1 tablespoon at a time and stir, stir, stir, until you reach the right consistency!
I used The Snack Factory brand of flat pretzel crisps to prepare these ice cream sammies. They are usually located in the Deli section of the grocery store.
If you prefer to use another nut, by all means go for it, this recipe is very versatile!
Why vegetable shortening? Because it will harden more quickly, and will form a candy-like coating preventing the pretzel crisps from becoming soggy. It will also give the chocolate it's shine!
