Ingredients Needed

  • Brownies: you could use a box mix or my homemade brownie mix or use my favorite brownie recipe!
  • Sweetened condensed milk: all of my homemade ice cream recipes have sweetened condensed milk 
  • Peanut butter: make sure you’re using no-stir peanut butter to avoid the oily mess that natural peanut butter makes
  • Whipped topping: or fresh whipped cream whichever one you prefer

How to make Brownies and Ice Cream

  1. Make the brownie batter according to whatever recipe you’re using.
  2. Spread in prepared pan and bake for 23-26 minutes until they just start to lose their glossy sheen. Cool completely.
  3. Stir ice cream ingredients together. Sweetened condensed milk, peanut butter, vanilla, and whipped topping. Stir in chopped peanut butter cups.
  4. Remove the entire sheet of brownies from the pan. 
  5. Line the same pan with plastic wrap, making sure that the plastic overhangs the edges and that the plastic comes up the sides of the pan all the way.
  6. Remove the foil from the brownies and place the brownie slab carefully back in the pan, on top of the plastic. 
  7. Spread the ice cream mixture on top of the brownie. 
  8. Cover the ice cream mixture with plastic wrap, adding more as needed, to completely cover the ice cream layer. 
  9. Freeze for at least 4 hours or overnight before serving.

  1. Um, that might just be the best looking dessert I’ve ever seen and I really want some right now.  Brownies and ice cream is my dessert of choice forever and always, adding peanut butter just takes it over the top!  🙂

  2. Hope Mel had a happy birthday! Man, I bet he did by the looks of these brownies! 

  3. Why are our husbands so strange?  I mean dessert should be devoured by the plateful not one bite!!!!  I do not know how Mel or my hubby have the self-control to just have one taste and be done!  It’s crazy…I think they are aliens to tell the truth!  I love everything about these brownies.  The fudgey brownie, the peanut butter ice cream, and of course the Reese’s…I’ll take 2 huge pieces please.  Because obviously I’m not an alien.  LOL!

  4. Oh my goodness, what a fabulous idea to put peanut butter ice cream on top of brownies! I would eat the whole pan if someone gave these to me for my birthday! Haha 🙂

  5. Paul has been requesting bacon and cheese soup on his birthday for the last 10 years. I have yet to make that. I much prefer this brownie. Also? I’ve decided that Mel is only partly human. Lol. Happy birthday to him!

  6. Wow! I wish we had stopped by at the end of the day instead of early!!! That looks wonderful. Happy birthday to Mel (again).

    xoxo

  7. Happy Bday to Mel hon!  And I can’t get over how much I want these brownies right now!
