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.

  • Fold together peanut butter mixture with whipped cream. Transfer to a sealable container and freeze until hardened, four hours or overnight.
  • Make the Chocolate Sauce

  1. Dorothy, your ice cream turned out good even though you didn’t use an ice cream maker?
    I always thought one had to use an ice cream maker to make good ice cream. Do you make all your ice cream this way or do you sometimes use an ice cream maker?
    Thanks and love love love your site!!!
