Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream Sandwiches…the best of both worlds! This is an easy dessert recipe that your family will love!
I love ice cream…in small amounts. I know, I know…besides chocolate, ice cream is the dessert of choice for many women, right? I get it! But here’s the thing, when my mother-in-law makes hot fudge sauce for ice cream, what I really want is a bowl of hot fudge sauce with a little ice cream on top! And when I get a chocolate dipped cone, I will eat the hard chocolate shell, scrape the ice cream off of the cone into one of my family members dishes and eat the little bit of remaining ice cream and the cone. And when I order a dish of ice cream, my favorite topping is Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. I pick through the ice cream to find the peanut butter cup bits and always end up wishing for more peanut butter cups while leaving the remaining ice cream behind. So, I decided to make Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream Sandwiches! They are perfect for me! I get two peanut butter cups with a little ice cream in between! What’s not to love?
Last Saturday, I made my first “test” sandwich. I wanted to see if the ice cream would stay between the peanut butter cups, if the mini chocolate chips would stick and see how they would taste. Vanessa and a friend got home before we did and checked for freezer for a snack. She called me and excitedly told me that she found an AMAZING LITTLE SURPRISE in the freezer and she was wondering if they could split it. How could I say no? So, I told her to go ahead but she had to let me know what they thought about the peanut butter cup ice cream sandwiches. Shortly after, I received the following iMessages:
Tween girls are so much fun!
These are so easy to make that who really needs a tutorial but here goes…place unwrapped peanut butter cups on a plate or a pan that fits in the freezer. I used the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups in the “snack size” bag.
Put a scoop of ice cream on each peanut butter cup.
Top the ice cream with another peanut butter cup and gently press down on the ice cream. Place the ice cream sandwiches in the freezer for 1 hour.
Roll the peanut butter cup ice cream sandwiches in mini chocolate chips. Use your fingers to press the mini chocolate chips into the ice cream.
Return the peanut butter cup ice cream sandwiches to the freezer until ready to serve.
Aren’t they beautiful? Or as my husband said, “Its overkill at its finest but very delicious!”
Yes, I have to agree! The peanut butter cup ice cream sandwiches are very delicious!
