Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream Sandwiches Recipe

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:

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.

    Awesome idea! So simple and seriously one of the easiest and best tasting desserts out there. Peanut butter, chocolate, and ice cream…impossible to go wrong. Love! 🙂
    Your bowl of chocolate syrup with a side of ice cream sounds like how I do it. 😉

    Tonia, The Peanut Butter Ice Cream Sandwich’s look awesome. I can hardly wait to try them.
    With the Peanut Butter Pie Recipe as well as the Peanut Butter Chocolate Cheesecake & the Peanut Butter Cup Pie Pops Recipe.
    Can they also be made with Nutella? The reason I ask is because my eldest granddaughter is Allergic to Regular Peanut Butter.

      Hi Anna,
      I’ve never tried making any of them with Nutella but am definitely going to try making the Peanut Butter Pie with Nutella! That sounds amazing! The Peanut Butter Cup Pie Pops have a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup inside them so that one would be a little bit harder. You could make your own Nutella Cups and then wrap them with pie dough.
