Decadent Peanut Butter Brownie Ice Cream Cake Recipe

This Peanut Butter Brownie Ice Cream Cake Recipe has been sponsored by Blue Bunny Ice Cream.  All opinions expressed here are my own.

Ice cream has always been one of my family’s all-time favorite desserts. My daughter tends to stick to the fruit flavors and rarely ventures away from strawberry.  The husband loves the classics…butter pecan and pistachio.  My son and I have more decadent tastes when it comes to our favorite ice cream flavors.  A bowl of rich, creamy ice cream loaded with chocolate, peanut butter and chunks of candy bits is my all time favorite dessert. Pair that decadent ice cream with brownies, whipped cream, and chocolate syrup and you have just described heaven in a bowl! When I was asked to partner with Blue Bunny ice cream to create a fun summer dessert, I was thrilled to take on this delicious challenge!

Blue Bunny is a popular brand down here in the south and very widely available in the Atlanta area.  They have quite a nice selection of products to choose from, whether you are looking for half gallons of ice cream or an assortment of other frozen treats.  You can check out the store locator to find out if they are available in your own area.  I absolutely love the Bunny Snacks.  They are a delicious, satisfying, bite–sized portion treat that is just right for an after dinner treat!

This brownie ice cream cake recipe is incredibly easy to make. You will need to do a little bit of planning ahead of time if you want to make it.   You need to give the brownies plenty of time to cool.  Make those up the night before!  You will need to thaw the ice cream for about 20 minutes and give the chocolate sauce about 20 minutes to cool.  None of the steps are hard at all.  Just don’t wait til the last minute to decide to make this.  The layers are really simple and shown below if you want a visual of how to put this together.

I used a box brownie mix for this dessert recipe.  You want to buy one designed for a 9 x 9-inch pan but cook it in a 9 x 13-inch pan.  Basically, you want a THIN brownie layer on the bottom.  You can make this brownie ice cream cake recipe even easier by using store-bought whipped cream and fudge sauce, although I did make those from scratch.  Once everything is made up, just layer, freeze, and serve!  Of course, you could always just dish up a bowl of Blue Bunny PB N’ Cones.  It is delicious right out of the carton!

With summer coming and pool parties on the calendar in the coming months, I love this brownie ice cream cake recipe.  It will serve a hoard of hungry kids or just a few hungry teenagers!  Blue Bunny has an amazing selection of flavors to choose from so if you don’t like the peanut butter and chocolate combination, you can switch things up.  Go with Blue Bunny’s Mint Cookie Crunch or banana split.  The possibilities are truly endless when it comes to flavors for this ice cream cake!

  1. Ahh! I need this in my life immediately! I am going to make one of these and I am NOT sharing!
  2. Oh my goodness. This looks yummy. I may need to make these for Memorial Day...or maybe sooner
  3. Well, if this isn't the best looking thing ever! :) Mmm.. great idea, it looks like it came out perfectly!
  4. This looks like a killer dessert! It's perfect for my hubby. He's a huge peanut butter and brownie fan. Love that this dessert looks pretty easy to make!
  5. Oh my gosh this looks amazing! I love peanut butter in my ice cream.... drool..... I will have to try this, this summer for sure.
  6. Not sure if I can even handle this. You somehow found ALL of my favorite things and layered them. LOL YUM!
  7. 3 of my 4 boys would be ALL for this dessert. My youngest avoids all nuts, though.So easy to put together which has me wondering why we don't do ice cream cakes like this more often.
  8. This does look decadent. I am thinking it would sound good to eat right about now. I have grown a recent appreciation for peanut butter, so this goes right along with that.
