Easy Salted Caramel Peanut Butter Ice Cream

I know, two peanut butter recipes in a row. Are you surprised? You shouldn’t be. Remember, I’m #addictedtopeanutbutter.

Also? #addictedtoicecream all year round!

Easy Salted Caramel Peanut Butter Ice Cream is no churn ice cream made without a machine!

I asked Facebook the other day if ice cream was acceptable in the winter. I expected that the answers would be split 50/50. I mean, I love ice cream all year long, but I live in California where cold is 60 degrees. Most of you live in areas where you have icicles hanging off your eaves and stepping outside to get the mail means you have to don 234 layers of clothing. Would you want to eat ice cream, despite all of that?

According to Facebook? Yes you would. The majority of responses were YES, ice cream all year round. Hooray for that, because it’s been too long since I made ice cram and I was totally craving some. So I made salted caramel peanut butter ice cream because peanut butter is what I do.

It’s kind of what you should expect from me at this point. Am I right?

So this ice cream is full of salted caramel flavor, and it’s not just from the ice cream topping I added. The peanut butter is also salted caramel.

This is where you do a gaping open-mouthed “Whaaaaaat?”

Yes, you read that right: Skippy now makes Salted Caramel Peanut Butter Spread.

Salted Caramel Peanut Butter

And it’s fabulous. And I cannot stop eating spoonfuls. It tastes like peanut butter with caramel and salt and oh my gosh.

You’ve been warned. This stuff is amazing.

So, a new flavor of peanut butter. What’s a girl to do? Oh yeah, make dessert with it. Because, obvi.

This is what I did with the new Skippy Salted Caramel Peanut Butter Spread:

Easy Salted Caramel Peanut Butter Ice Cream

And then I ate almost all of it all by myself. #noshame

Peanut butter ice cream is my absolute favorite flavor, but I never buy it at the store because peanut butter ice cream usually comes in chocolate form. Want to know a secret? I don’t like chocolate ice cream.

*gasp*

I know right? What kind of a dessert blogger am I? I’m the kind that makes her own ice cream to her liking. And? I make ice cream that doesn’t need a machine. It’s easy, no churn, and only has a handful of ingredients.

That? Is ice cream I love. And it’s ice cream you’ll love too!

Easy Salted Caramel Peanut Butter Ice Cream

The base of all my easy ice cream recipes are two ingredients: sweetened condensed milk and whipped cream. When you mix the two together and freeze it, it makes ice cream without a machine. It’s a miracle, really. It’s a NO CHURN Ice Cream Recipe!

To make this salted caramel peanut butter version, I added a healthy dose of Skippy’s new Salted Caramel Peanut Butter Spread. Then I swirled in some more salted caramel and some chopped peanuts. It’s so easy to make it’s almost a crime…against my diet.

A few notes about the recipe:

Sweetened Condensed Milk comes in two versions: regular and fat-free. Y’all always make fun of me because I use the fat-free one regularly. Why? I don’t know, I just do. I used the fat-free in this ice cream, but either will work.

You have two options for the Whipped Cream. One, use 2 cups of cold heavy whipping cream and whip it until stiff peaks form. Or, go the cheater route like I did in this recipe: use whipped topping. You can use regular, light, or fat-free whipped topping. But yes, you can use whipped cream if you don’t like whipped topping.

If you can’t find the Salted Caramel Peanut Butter Spread, you can use regular peanut butter. I have used Skippy Naturals many times in easy ice cream recipes.

Salted Caramel is sometimes hard to find. Some of the major brands make it, so look for it near the ice cream at the grocery store. Regular caramel ice cream topping can be used instead if you can’t find salted caramel.

I filled this ice cream with chopped honey roasted peanuts but you can use whatever mix-ins you like. I really wanted to use chocolate covered pretzels but I couldn’t find any at the store. Chopped cookies or other candies would be delicious in this. The nuts or other mix-ins just give the ice cream some crunch and texture.

And, of course, you should serve the ice cream with more salted caramel on top. I think that’s a law?

This Easy Salted Caramel Peanut Butter Ice Cream is made without an ice cream machine! It's no churn ice cream that tastes like salted caramel peanut butter!

What will you make with the new Skippy spread?

Did you make this recipe?

Easy Salted Caramel Peanut Butter Ice Cream

This easy ice cream is no churn and doesn’t need an ice cream maker! It’s filled with salted caramel and peanut butter flavor, with extra peanuts for some added crunch.

Ingredients:

  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup Skippy Salted Caramel Peanut Butter Spread
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 (8 ounce) containers Whipped Topping (fat-free, light, or regular) OR 2 cups cold heavy whipping cream (not whipped)
  • heaping 1/2 cup chopped peanuts (I used honey roasted)
  • 1/2 cup salted caramel ice cream topping (or regular caramel if you can’t find salted)

Directions:

  1. Stir sweetened condensed milk and peanut butter in a large bowl until smooth. Stir in vanilla.
  2. If using whipped topping: gently fold the whipped topping into the peanut butter mixture.
  3. If using fresh whipped cream: beat 2 cups of heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks form. Gently fold into the peanut butter mixture.
  4. Fold peanuts into the ice cream mixture. Fold salted caramel ice cream topping into the mixture but make sure not to stir it too much – you want it to swirl not mix in.
  5. Pour mixture into an airtight container, seal, and freeze overnight. Eat within 1 month.
  6. Serving suggestion: top with more salted caramel sauce and chopped peanuts.

Notes:

If you can’t find the Skippy Salted Caramel Peanut Butter Spread you can use regular peanut butter (or your favorite flavor).

Regular caramel ice cream topping may be substituted for the salted caramel.

Feel free to use your favorite mix-in instead of peanuts. Chocolate covered pretzels, candy, or chopped cookies would all be perfect in this.

  1. Okay, not fair. You’ve hit my happy place two days in a row. This is going down in my history book as the best ice cream ever. Being me, I’m adding chocolate chips, too. I suddenly want ice cream as a snowstorm bears down on us…

  2. I’m addicted to peanut butter, too, so keep those recipes comin’! This ice cream looks fantastic, Dorothy! Just what the peanut butter addict in me needs. Pinned!

  3. I JUST turned that Salted Caramel Peanut Butter into a cookie pizza…and it MOST definitely needs some ice cream on top.
    Specifically, THIS ice cream. Totally in love with this frozen goodness! Pinned!

  4. I need to get my hands on that salted caramel peanut butter! This ice cream looks too good to not try!

  5. I love that you made two peanut butter recipes in a row 🙂 I’m right there with you and can’t get enough!

    And I have a salted caramel PB post on Wed 🙂 I LOVE that you made ice cream with it (and even took a wintertime FB vote!) – wow, these looks soooo good and refreshing!

  6. Yes to ice cream all year long! We have a favorite ice cream place near us that has indoor seating and a fire place going during the winter. Perfectly cozy! Sweet and salty peanuts with creamy caramel? I love this flavor combo!!!

  7. What a silly question… ice cream is perfectly acceptable (and almost a REQUIREMENT at my house) any time of year. Even in a blizzard! 🙂 This looks awesome, Dorothy!

  8. Gah, ice cream is my kryptonite!!  It was snowing here last night and I had a big bowl of strawberry ice cream!!  I could eat it anytime!

  9. Ohhh.. my… gosh.. this looks too good. I wish I had never seen this, lol. Will try this over the weekend I’m sure, lol!

  10. Holy moly, this sounds fabulous, Dorothy. And exactly what I would expect from you. Salted caramel peanut butter sounds incredible. Pinning and making this as soon as I can get to the store!

  13. Yep, I’m officially in love with this ice cream and am starting my hunt for this Skippy PB as we speak! First stop: your freezer and pantry 😀

  14. I would eat every last bit of this!!  That caramel drizzled on the top is to die for!!  🙂

  15. OH MY WOW!! This ice cream looks too amazing for words!! I am totally #addictedtopeanutbutter too and can imagine that this delicious ice cream would not last long around here!!!

  16. I live in the UK  where peanut butter is a love a hate thing. I am on the  peanut butter campaign trying to convert everyone into peanut butter lovers! 

    I don’t know how well I’m doing, but I might try to find this peanut butter or have my mom or sister send some to me so I can try it out and try to convert non-peanut butter lovers to peanut butter lovers! 

  17. I am in California too and of course its hot today! So this salted caramel ice cream looks beyond amazing! Pinned! I want some right now! 

  18. I just died…and drooled. I’m all about ice cream year round. Sign me up for a big ol’ bowl of this. Pinned.

  19. Wow, this looks great. I could use some right about now. With peanuts and pb in it, it should be considered dinner; right? 🙂

  20. I think I’ve died and gone to peanut butter heaven, how have I never seen that skippy before, and the ice cream…there is always room for ice cream

  21. This looks like the best ice cream ever! Even though it’s 1 degree where I am. HA! Gorgeous photos, too! 🙂

  22. Ok…two things I’m freaking out about.  That there’s a peanut butter salted caramel flavor.  Eeeek!  and that you can make icecream without a machine?!  Seriously, my mind is blown.  

  23. Despite the fact that I’m freezing my buns off in CT right now, I could totally dig into a big bowl of ice cream. If peanut butter and salted caramel is involved, count me in.

  24. Oh, I didn’t know you could make ice cream like this without and ice cream maker! My life is changed! 🙂 

  25. Oh wow, I haven’t seen this flavor of peanut butter, but I’m glad that I now know it exists! This ice cream looks great with those peanut buttery swirls. What a fantastic idea for ice cream! 🙂

  26. Salted caramel and peanut butter ice cream???  All of my weaknesses in one tasty little recipe.  Plus it’s easy to make.  It’s like you know me 🙂

  27. I’m on team ice cream all year long- matter of fact, I am eating some right now… while huddled under my blankie 🙂 So excited to give this a try, peanut butter is the beeeest. 

  28. Hooooooooly cow! I need this in my life!

  29. Oh my goodness.  You can make ice cream without an ice cream machine?!  What rock have I been living under that I didn’t know that was possible?!  I may just have found a new addiction!  This looks amazing, and I can’t wait to try it!

  30. Yes to ice cream all year long!  Salted caramel peanut butter? OMG, I need to get my hands on that stat! <3 this!

  31. Oh my goodness! We have a mixture of sleet, snow, and freezing rain on the ground and I’m drooling over this! I love chocolate, but not chocolate ice cream! I had rather have vanilla and add wonderful things to it. This peanut butter ice cream will be in my freezer soon! I also love that it doesn’t involve an ice cream churn! 

  32. I am such a Skippy girl! I stick to the Natural version but it’s our favourite peanut butter!

  33. I am likewise hooked on PB (and had my share of Skippy this morning, in fact).  Ice cream is definitely on all year round.  I think it’s fun to eat cold on cold (as in freezing cold outside)!  This ice cream looks crazy good!

  34. I’m in love with this ice cream! Speechless.

  35. I’ve been wanting to make this ice cream for a few years now, not sure why I’ve never done it……..but I think I need to now!!

    I have a jar of the Skippy Salted Caramel PB (I made a cake) and OMG its better than I imagined it would be!!

  36. Oh! I have a similar recipe (minus the PB obvi) that I’ve had in the queue forever. I think with the current summer like weather we’re having…and Haley’s need for soft foods, now’s a good time to use it. Along with your question!

  37. Oh my goodness, I wish this was my lunch! Looks absolutely amazing!

  38. How have I never seen this peanut butter, that is crazy?!!! I am on the look out!

  39. Oh yes! I am so ready for ice cream and that peanut butter…ah-mazing! Pinned!

  40. Yum!! As silly as this may sound, I’ve never made homemade ice cream before! Definitely starting with this one…I love peanut butter! 

  41. Ever since I discovered no churn ice cream I so rarely use my ice cream maker! Love this version.

  42. Peanut butter AND salted caramel?! I’m dying over here. Fortunately it’s 70+ degrees here in AZ, so ice cream is totally acceptable right now! Hooray!

  43. I’m quite certain I could eat ice-cream in 0 degrees! I have yet to see this Skippy flavor..I am officially on the hunt!

  44. I agree with ice cream all year round. I’m going to  have to try the salted caramel skippy. 

  45. You’re straight killing me right now with this. I would totally eat ice cream in the arctic, so the fact that Southern California is reaching the mid-70s makes ice cream a must. Salted PB ice cream? Killer.  

  46. This post is seriously perfect. First because I’m a weirdo and prefer ice cream in winter (I have no idea what’s up with that), and second because that pb sounds killer!!!

  47. I can’t find that salted caramel pb in any store near me. This makes me sad. I need that pb and the ice cream too.

  48. Yum! I definitely eat ice cream year round!

  49. Ice cream ALL year! (Says the girl who is in Phoenix, thus probably is excluded from voting). No joke, I have been stalking store shelves like a junkie in a desperate as attempt to find this peanut butter. My life really won’t be complete until I find it! I can’t wait to try it from a spoon, in your ice cream, in cakes, from a spoon, you get the drift. 🙂

  50. I haven’t heard about this peanut butter yet! Two of my favorite things in one! And then in ice cream… thank you, thank you! 🙂

  51. OH MY GOD that skippy salted caramel pb is HAUNTING me! I MUST FIND IT because what what what this ice cream so so delish

  52. Sounds wonderful… but have a dumb question….You are asking for  2 (8 ounce) containers Whipped Topping (fat-free, light, or regular) … is this Cool Whip?   Told you it was a dumb question…

  53. I am drooling looking at these pictures. I have already had my portion of ice cream for the day but this makes me want to eat all of it. I love salted carmel and ice cream so i`m not sure if I could make this. I would end up eating it all and gaining everything I lost. But I`m betting this recipe is so worth it since Skippys is my favorite 

  54. I used cool whip and works and tastes great. Love this and so easy to make. Takes minutes. 

  55. I love salted caramel but some of the ice cream in the stores is too expensive and has many calories. I have made this twice and love it. So fast and easy to make. Hopefully using the cool whip cuts down on the calories a little because I love this. 
    Thanks. 

    • I’m so glad you like it!! I love using the Cool Whip – it changes the texture just a bit but is still good. And it’s so much cheaper (and creamier) than the expensive stuff!

  56. I made this with heavy cream, regular creamy peanut butter, and honey roasted peanuts. It was awesome. If I go the whipped topping route next time, how long does it need to thaw in the fridge beforehand?
