Today is a super special day! It’s a day that requires peanut butter ice cream that’s filled with chunks of fudgy brownie.

Honestly, every day is special enough for this Peanut Butter Brownie Ice Cream, I know. But today is really extra important.

It’s my husband’s birthday!

Birthdays aren’t really important to him. He’d probably rather I just forget that it’s a day. He actually told me not to get him presents. I know, right?

Birthdays, however, are very important to me. They’ve always been huge deals in my family. So I bring my big hullabaloo to him, and he just grins and bears it.

So, {tap tap tap} everyone ready?


So, for his birthday I made him ice cream. Actually, I’m lying. I made this ice cream a few weeks ago, when I had a pan of brownies left after testing my Brownie Mix recipe. He’s getting something else for his birthday today. But in my dreams, he’s eating this.

{I actually made him promise to eat at least one bite of his birthday dessert. He said of course he would, but I’m thinking I need that written in blood.}

Anyway, this Easy Peanut Butter Brownie Ice Cream would be right up his alley. He loves all things peanut butter and can rarely resist when I make peanut butter treats. {But he does resist, which makes me want to smack him.}

Really, there’s not a lot I can say about this ice cream other than it’s the most amazing thing everrrrrr.

It’s easy ice cream, made without a machine. This is my third post about easy ice cream this week, so I’m hoping you know what it is already. If not, let me run it down. Easy ice cream is made with sweetened condensed milk and either fresh whipped cream and Cool Whip. It’s easy, and it’s no churn ice cream!

If you’ve read all three posts this week, you’ll know this is made with Cool Whip. I made sure to use fat-free Cool Whip for this, along with my favorite fat-free sweetened condensed milk, so that if by chance Mel did take a bite, it would be lower in calorie.

But if you hate Cool Whip, you can use freshly whipped cream. Just see the note in the directions.

Okay, so now you know about easy ice cream. This version has peanut butter mixed in. Are you drooling yet?

Then, let’s talk brownies.

Last week I posted Homemade Brownie Mix. Have you made it yet? Why not? It’s the easiest thing ever, and it makes making brownies for this ice cream a snap.

Once the brownies are cool, you chop up a bunch of them and stir it into the ice cream mixture, then freeze. The result?

Mind blowing, drool inspiring, machine-free ice cream.

Serve it in a cone, a cup, or on top of a brownie with homemade chocolate sauce.

This would be an amazing birthday treat. Or a Wednesday treat. You celebrate Wednesday, right?

Me too.

Easy peanut butter ice cream made without an ice cream machine! Filled with chunks of brownie this ice cream is the ultimate chocolate and peanut butter dessert.


  • 1 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk (I like to use the fat-free kind)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup creamy peanut butter I like Skippy Naturals
  • 2 8 ounce containers Cool Whip (regular, light, or fat-free), see note
  • 3 cups baked and cooled brownies cubed (about 3/4 of a 9x9 pan of this brownie mix recipe)


  • Place the sweetened condensed milk in a large bowl. Use a hand mixer to mix in the vanilla extract and peanut butter. Fold in the Cool Whip and the brownie chunks.
  • Place ice cream mixture in an airtight container. Freeze for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  • Serve alone, or as a brownie sundae!

  3. This looks amazing. I actually made your mint ice cream last week. The one with mint oreos. Sorry I forgot to comment on it. That was the first time I’ve ever made homemade ice cream. I loved the taste but also the texture. It’s really different from store bought. Much denser. A lil definitely goes a long way. I think this ice cream you created looks delicious. Are all of your ice creams rich? I would like to try this one. Thank you so much.

  6. This looks so delicious! I love chocolate and peanut butter, adding them to ice cream just makes them that much better. I love your easy ice cream recipe too, I’m trying it out the next chance I get!

  7. This pretty much looks like the most amazing ice cream EVER. I guess I have no excuse {not having an ice cream maker} now. Hope your husband takes a really nice big bite of this, I am a little jealous of him 😉
