Snickers Peanut Butter Brownie Ice Cream Cake

Just looking at these pictures makes my mouth water. Imagine what it’s like in person. As I was making it, the hubs said he wanted to put his face in it. As fun as that would have been to see, ‘face’ isn’t really an ingredient in this particular cake. πŸ™‚

Snickers Peanut Butter Brownie Ice Cream Cake

This cake was actually made to celebrate the birthdays of a couple people in our small group. We had a little par-tay at the house and I actually made this, as well as my chocolate chip cookie cake, which was requested.

That cookie cake is easily the most viewed recipe on my blog and gets rave reviews whenever I make it, but dare I say this ice cream cake stole the attention completely away from that cookie.

The peanut butter ice cream is really the star in this ice cream cake show. Despite my clearly stellar dessert making abilities everyone seemed surprised to know that I’d made it from scratch.

Either they just don’t know me well enough yet, or the ice cream is THAT good.

I prefer to go with it’s just THAT good. πŸ™‚

Snickers Peanut Butter Brownie Ice Cream Cake

This baby is rich. Perfectly rich. It rocks 4 layers of awesome:

1. Brownie
2. Caramel and chocolate sauce
3. Chopped snickers
4. Peanut butter ice cream

A snicker lovers dream.

It’s also nice and easy to make. There’s no ice cream machine needed and I used a boxed brownie mix and store-bought caramel and chocolate sauce to make it even easier. Once you have the brownies made, it’s just a matter of layering and freezing. Piece of cake. πŸ˜‰

Snickers Peanut Butter Brownie Ice Cream Cake

Snickers Peanut Butter Brownie Ice Cream Cake
1 8-inch cake

1 box brownie mix, plus ingredients required on box
1/4 cup milk
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups peanut butter
8 oz Cool Whip, thawed (OR 1 recipe of homemade whipped cream)
1 20 oz bottle chocolate sundae syrup (Here’s the one I used)
1 20 oz bottle caramel sundae syrup
1 11.5 oz bag mini snickers, chopped, divided into three groups

NOTE: An 8-inch springform pan is best for this recipe so that you can easily remove the cake once it’s been assembled. If you do not have a springform pan, line your pan with clear wrap before adding your parchment paper and cake board. You can use the clear warp to lift your cake out of the pan once it’s assembled and frozen.

1. Make brownie dough according to instructions on back of box.
2. Grease two 8-inch pans (preferable springform pans, see above) and line the bottoms with parchment paper to allow for easy removal. Bake at temperature on box, reducing baking time to about 20 minutes (You can also bake 1 big brownie – which would cook for the normal time – and cut it in half, but cutting a brownie in half isn’t super easy).
3. When brownies are done baking, allow to completely cool.

Ice Cream:
1. Combine milk, cream cheese, sugar and peanut butter together in the bowl of a stand mixer, or with a hand mixer. Mix until completely combined.
2. Fold in the cool whip.

Assembling it all:
1. Line the sides of an 8-inch springform pan with parchment paper. The parchment paper should stick up above the top edge of the pan, since the cake will probably be a little taller than your pan. If you want, put a cardboard cake circle in the bottom of the pan.
NOTE: You should be using the same 8-inch pan you used for the brownies. Not all 8-inch pans are exactly the same size. Your brownie needs to fit in this pan.
2. Put the first brownie layer in the bottom of your pan.
3. Spread 1/2 cup caramel sauce and 1/2 cup chocolate sauce over the brownie. Top with first group of chopped snickers.
4. Top with half of the peanut butter ice cream.
5. Add second brownie to the pan, on top of the ice cream.
6. Again cover with 1/2 cup caramel sauce and 1/2 cup chocolate sauce. Top with second group of chopped snickers.
7. Top with remaining peanut butter ice cream.
8. Allow ice cream cake to freeze completely.
9. When frozen, remove from springform pan and remove parchment paper from sides.
10. Top with additional caramel sauce and chocolate sauce, allowing it to drizzle down the sides.
11. Cover with remaining chopped snickers and a little more caramel and chocolate sauce.

    I’m an absolute novice! used the whipped cream as cant find cool whip (said like stewie, haha) in the uk. AWSOME!

  6. Oh my goodness, pure bliss. I found your recipe from Pinterest and made it today. Posted the end result to Facebook and boy did it cause a stir. Everyone loved it, It looks so yummy and tasted just wonderful. Between my family and a few friends, it has almost gone already and we didn’t even get it completely set in the freezer. Was too tempting to wait. Thanks for a new awesome dessert to add to my favourites. Looking forward to trying a few others.

  7. OMG this looks incredibly delicious! Both my kids have birthdays coming up and I’d love to make this only I don’t know that they’re fans of Snickers – but I am! Great recipe and interesting way of making ice cream, I’ve never seen a recipe like that before. Can’t wait to try it.
