I know, I know. It’s October, and you’re getting emailed an ice cream recipe? Unfortunately, here in Alabama, it’s still 50 shades of uncomfortable hot outside, so in lieu of another recipe that requires you to fire up the oven I wanted to share a simple no-churn peanut butter caramel ice cream that is only 5 ingredients and can be made in the comfort of your air conditioned kitchen. Honestly, it sounds more than a little delicious to me, so grab a spoon and let’s dive in.

What did we do before no-churn ice cream? Were we all just buying ice cream from the store? Using one of those old school hand-churning barrel devices? Were we simply not eating frozen desserts at all? I don’t want to live in a world where no-churn isn’t an option, and this  peanut butter caramel ice cream situation is approximately 99% of the reason why. With a creamy peanut butter base, a salted caramel swirl, and chocolate sandwich cookie crumbs sprinkled throughout (yes, I went there), this ice cream is my sweet and salty dreams come true. Anything boasting a peanut butter and caramel combo is basically food seduction to me, and throwing it all together into an easy frozen treat is maybe the sexiest idea I’ve had all summer fall. Let me tell you how to make it.

No-churn ice cream is typically made by combining freshly whipped cream and a can of sweetened condensed milk. Don’t ask me to explain the wizard science behind this concoction, but somehow these two ingredients combined create pure magic. For this peanut butter caramel ice cream, we add a good bit of creamy peanut butter to the sweetened condensed milk before folding it into the clouds of cream. Once incorporated, we have a delicious peanut buttery mixture that would be good enough to enjoy all on it’s own but we don’t stop there. Instead, we swirl in warm drizzles of salted caramel sauce and sprinkle in crumbled chocolate sandwich cookies, so each bite is brimming with rich flavors and nibbles of crunch. I like to spoon my prepared ice cream into metal loaf pans to firm up in the freezer, but any plastic Tupperware or freezer-safe dish works just fine. If you’re like me, you’ll likely end up eating a good bit of the ice cream before it even makes it to the freezer, and there’s no judging that either. It’s just that good.

This 5 ingredient no-churn peanut butter caramel ice cream is loaded with salted caramel sauce and chocolate cookies, and requires no ice cream machine!

  • Author: Kate
  • Prep Time: 5
  • Total Time: 240
  • Yield: 1 qt
  • Category: ice cream

Ingredients

  • 2 cups (480 gm) heavy whipping cream
  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2/3 cup-1 cup creamy peanut butter (see notes)
  • 12 chocolate sandwich cookies, crushed
  • 1/4 cup prepared caramel sauce

Instructions

  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer, whip the heavy whip on medium-high speed until stiff peaks form. In a separate bowl, whisk together the condensed milk and peanut butter. Fold half of the whipped cream into the peanut butter mixture and then fold the remaining whipped cream and crushed cookies into the mixture. Layer 1/4 of the mixture into the bottom of a large loaf pan or ice cream container and drizzle on some of the caramel sauce. Repeat this process three more times and then use a knife to swirl the caramel and ice cream together. Freeze until solid and enjoy!

Notes

  • One cup of peanut butter will make for an intensely peanut buttery ice cream. The flavor is delicious but it is more difficult to fold together and you will find that the ice cream freezes more firm. 2/3 cup of peanut butter will yield a more mellow flavored, softer ice cream. Find the balance that works best for you!

    Could almond butter be subbed for peanut here? We have an allergy in the household.
