 The Recipe

I love chocolate. I love peanut butter. Put them together? I'm in heaven. My favorite candy is peanut butter cups. If there's a way to combine chocolate and peanut butter, you can bet I'll eat it.

There's a popular family-friendly restaurant chain that's known for its ice cream. They have a peanut butter cup sundae. I order it every time I go, which isn't that often, because the sundae is probably about 5,000 calories. Ok, just under 900. Seriously, it has three scoops of ice cream, peanut butter topping, hot fudge, peanut butter cups, and whipped cream. Honestly, my stomach feels bloated just thinking about it. There really can be too much of a good thing.

But after learning that I can make peanut butter topping at home, I can create my own, smaller version of my favorite sundae. It's so very simple to make, and keeps well in the fridge.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream Sundaes

Yield: 4

Ingredients

For the peanut butter topping

  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup light corn syrup
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla

For the sundaes

  • 1 pint chocolate ice cream
  • ½ cup hot fudge topping
  • ½ cup mini peanut butter cups

Instructions

  1. Make the peanut butter topping: place the first five ingredients in a medium saucepan over medium heat and stir constantly until the sugar dissolves and the mixture is uniform. Remove from the heat and let sit for 5 to 10 minutes. Add the peanut butter and stir until fully incorporated. Pour into a container and let sit at room temperature until fully cooled.
  2. Scoop ½ cup ice cream into each of four bowls. Top each bowl with 2 tbsp of peanut butter topping, 2 tbsp of hot fudge topping, 2 tbsp of mini peanut butter cups, and some whipped cream.
