Such a simple joy, this is like a frozen version of a peanut butter cup!
For the chocolate “Magic Shell”:
Combine chocolate chips and coconut oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir frequently until chocolate is almost melted. Remove from heat and stir until completely melted and smooth. Let it cool a bit and use right away. Or store it in a covered container in the refrigerator, where the cold will change it from liquid to solid. To use after it has been refrigerated, warm the Magic Shell gently in the microwave, stirring frequently, and taking care to not overheat. Then spoon over scoops of ice cream. Let it sit for a minute or two before eating, to let the Magic Shell completely harden.
For the ice cream (yields about 1 quart):
Puree the peanut butter, sugar, half-and-half, salt, and vanilla in a blender or food processor until smooth. Chill the mixture thoroughly in the refrigerator, then freeze it in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

I chose to use semi-sweet chocolate instead of milk chocolate, so that the chocolate flavor would really punch through. This provided the perfect balance of chocolate to make the whole frosting completely “milk chocolate” in flavor.
