Peanut butter and jelly sandwich ice cream

My 6-year-old son's idea. So: peanut butter ice cream with jelly swirl, or jelly ice cream with peanut butter swirl? We have excellent homemade berry jam and strawberries from the garden. Chunks of brioche or poundcake? (The bread chunks may be weird but he insists on the "sandwich" part.)

  1. Make pb and j sandwiches w/ poundcake, freeze. Cut into little bite sized pieces and add to vanilla ice cream. To me, that would be a pb and j sandwich ice cream.

    1. I would make peanut butter ice cream with a jelly swirl and crumbles of brioche that have been toasted with extra butter and sugar.

        I second this idea; it sounds delicious, except I'd leave out the extra butter & sugar.

          +1 to babette's suggestion - that sounds awesome.

            There's a cinnamon toast ice cream recipe on epicurious (that I have been meaning to make for 10 years) which might provide some general guideline for the toast in ice cream concept.
            But I'd possibly make this idea into ice cream sandwiches.... Made with pound cake slices, pb ice cream and your homemade jam, perhaps?

              This is probably what I will try. Though I love the other sandwiching tips, my son wants it all to be integrated into the ice cream. As for his marketing genius, this is his first food one. However, he mentally invents about three things a day. Since this is one of the few (only?) that I can pull off, I want to do it well! Also, he normally only will eat plain chocolate or vanilla, so it's an opportunity to get him to expand his palate.

                I wonder about using crumbled wafers, the kind that ice cream cones are made of. They are sold flat in grocery stores handling European and Middle Eastern imports. Or maybe you could crumble sugar cone-style ice cream cones. Might be less likely to go soft in the ice cream.

                Also, a "Peanut Butter Chippy" ice cream flavor is sold by Leopold's legendary ice cream parlor in Savannah GA. Maybe some Savannah CH can enlighten us on what the chips are made of.

              2. Make Peanut Butter ice cream.

                Serve it on a slice of toasted pound cake.

                Drizzle the entire thing with berry jam and chunks of strawberry.

                Then invite me over.

                  Given that a 6 year old is thinking about this ice cream, I don't see your idea really exciting him. How can you eat in in an ice cream cone while running around and playing? :)

                  Sounds darn tasty though!

                    Why would you assume all 6-year olds eat ice cream in a "cone while running around and playing"?

                2. Pb ice cream, with jam swirl, sandwiched into thin slices of toasted brioche. Have some napkins near by...

                  1. Peanut butter cookies with vanilla swirled with jam. Lucky kid.
