The Ultimate Peanut Butter Caramel Sundae: Peanut Butter Ice Cream + Peanutty Caramel Sauce + Roasted Salted Peanuts = Heaven on Earth
Peanut Butter Ice Cream with Peanutty Caramel
While on my Ben & Jerry’s core ice cream attempt the other day I also made a Peanut Butter Ice Cream with a Caramel Core. Unfortunately, the caramel became way too hard in the freezer. Fortunately, it was still delicious. And it’s easier to just drizzle the sauce on top of the ice cream anyway.
I keep thinking about what is left of this in the freezer. I know I shouldn’t go eat it all but I probably will. I try to be honest. I’ll eat a few more fuel pulls (low fat and carb meals) over the next couple days to make up for it.
My husband loves peanut butter and chocolate together. When I worked at Friendly’s while we were dating he would also come to visit me and get vanilla ice cream with peanut butter sauce and hot fudge. If you like that combo too try this ice cream with my hot fudge on top.

Peanut Butter Ice Cream with Peanut Flavored Caramel is the ultimate indulgence!
- Ice Cream Directions: Combine all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Churn in an ice cream maker according to your manufacturer's instructions. For hard ice cream freeze the ice cream until firm. At least 2 hours. For softer ice cream you can eat some right from the machine.
- Caramel Sauce Directions: Combine first three ingredients and cook over medium low heat until bubbly, slightly thickened, and lightly browned. Remove from the heat and add the other ingredients. Cool to room temperature. Store in the fridge. If it solidifies just reheat and stir for it to come back together.
