Take mixture off the heat and add salt and peanut butter. Mix well. Cook at 325°F in convection oven in “steam” for 15 to 20 minutes. Cool until ready to use.

For chocolate sorbet: Heat water and sugar until mixture comes to a boil. Add salt and vanilla. Add cocoa powder and continue to heat until cocoa is completely dissolved. Remove from heat and add bittersweet chocolate. Mix until incorporated. Chill. Churn in ice cream maker.

Add ground homemade cookies. Bake at 300°F in convection oven (low fan) for 10 minutes. Using a square cutter, cut into as many cookies as possible while still slightly soft. Bake for another 15 minutes. When cool, remove with spatula and store in airtight container.
