Chocolate and peanut butter lovers – you NEED these! Rich peanut butter fudge ice cream studded with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and hot fudge sauce are sandwiched between two brownies making the most perfect summer dessert! INCREDIBLE!!
I have a weakness for ice cream. Especially in the summer, when its hot there is nothing I love more than good old fashioned ice cream. I’ll take it in a soft serve cone, a bowl, a dish, a sundae on top of pie, from the ice cream truck – if its cold and creamy, I’m gonna eat it. Once I started making ice cream at home, well, lets just say a mild ice cream addiction has taken shape. I also became a bit more discerning about the quality of ice cream. Lets just say, if I’m gonna eat it, it better be good. Since I’ve been making ice cream at home for a couple years now, in all honesty, this Peanut Butter Fudge Ice Cream is absolutely the best I’ve ever made!
This Peanut Butter Fudge Ice Cream is more like a frozen custard, as its consistency is the ultimate in creamy deliciousness! The ice cream is then studded with mini Reese’s Peanut Butter cups, and more (yes, I said more) peanut butter. I then add a thick layer of hot fudge sauce in the middle to create a fudgy ripple. I’m tellin’ ya, ice cream does not get much more perfect than this, especially if you love chocolate and peanut butter.
Now, just in case we didn’t have enough chocolate, lets layer this gorgeous ice cream with a couple more delicious treats. I’ve made some thin brownies to sandwich this delectable ice cream. The brownies are fudgy, chewy and just the right consistency for an amazing dessert. I’ve then topped off the ice cream with some more delicious hot fudge sauce. Why not!? 😉
Now, you could totally stop there and have an amazing brownie sundae. But what the heck, lets go all in! Lets top this baby off with another brownie to create the Ultimate Ice Cream Sandwich!
If you like Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, you’re gonna love this rich, decadent dessert!
This recipe does require a few steps, but be patient, its completely worth it. Here’s how these magnificent ice cream sandwiches come together:
The brownie recipe was adapted from the Chewy Brownie recipe from the June 2014 issue of Southern Living Magazine.
If you like ice cream, or peanut butter, or peanut butter and chocolate, you owe it to yourself to give these a try. They are nothing like anything you can buy in the frozen food aisle at the grocery store. I’ve come to discover that home made ice cream is completely worth the effort, as the flavor and creamy texture are paramount to anything else I’ve tasted. I hope you enjoy this as much as I have! ~Erin
