Deep dish peanut butter ice cream cookie sundaes with title on a white plate

So…yeah. If you don’t like peanut butter this may not be the post for you.

Monday was my husband’s birthday. Whenever I start brainstorming what to make for his birthday, two things come to mind: carrot cake and peanut butter and chocolate.

When I asked him if there was something he wanted me to make he mentioned maybe something with peanut butter cups.

Well. Now, we all know I did that. Last year. And then some.

Also, I didn’t want to make a cake. Too much leftover. You all know my husband pretty well by now. If I made him a cake he would eat one slice and then guess you would eat the rest?

All the running in the world wouldn’t cure that, now would it?

So I made him some simple deep dish peanut butter chocolate chip peanut cookies.

And then I dressed them up like they were Cinderella, going to the ball.

No one likes a nekkid cookie. A nekkid cookie might get teased and then feel bad about itself. We can’t have that, now can we?

So I made some ice cream. Peanut butter ice cream. You know, using that two ingredient method?

{But this time I used actual whipped cream instead of Cool Whip. ‘Cuz my guy is one of those people…you know the type. The “hmmm…that’s too sweet” type. WTH does “too sweet” even mean?}

Now, normally, I would have stopped there. But since we’re dressing up the cookie, she needed some accessories. A hat, perhaps.

There she is. All dressed up and ready for the ball.
