1⁄8 Cup (2 tbs) (You May Add More Milk, If You Like Your Milkshake Thinner.)
In a small pot, combine ¼ cup sugar and ¼ cup water. Place over medium-high heat and stir constantly, until the sugar melts, forming a simple syrup. When you see bubbles forming around the edge of the pot, remove it from the heat. Allow the simple syrup to cool at room temperature for awhile, and then refrigerate until cool. Add ½ cup peanut butter and 1/3 cup confectioner's sugar to the simple syrup. Stir until smooth, making a peanut butter sauce. (This sauce may be used as a sundae topping as well.) Place 2 cups vanilla ice cream in a blender. Add 1/8 cup milk and ½ cup of the peanut butter sauce. Set blender to liquefy, and blend until smooth. (I like to leave some strands of peanut butter sauce in the blended milkshake. Pour immediately into a tall dessert glass (or two small dessert glasses). Insert a smoothie straw or iced tea spoon, and voila! The BEST Peanut Butter Milkshake you will find! Enjoy!!! --Betty
