Well, this no churn chocolate peanut butter cup ice cream is no exception to the list of amazing no churn ice creams I’ve made.

Ingredients
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • ½ cup cocoa powder
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup chopped peanut butter cups
Instructions
  1. In a large mixing bowl, whip your heavy cream over medium high speed for about 5 minutes until stiff peaks start to form. (It may take longer or shorter depending how fast you're doing it, you want it stiff, but a few minutes too long and you'll turn it into butter)
  2. In another bowl, combine your condensed milk and cocoa powder.
  3. Pour your whipped cream into your chocolate condensed milk mixture and fold everything together till combined.
  4. Melt your peanut butter in the microwave for about 30 seconds.
  5. Pour one third of your ice cream into a 9x5in loaf pan. Drizzle one third of your peanut butter over the ice cream and sprinkle with a third of the peanut butter cup pieces. Repeat with another third ice cream, peanut butter and peanut butter cups. And then repeat with the final ice cream, peanut butter and peanut butter cup pieces.
  6. Cover tightly and place in freezer for 6 hours, up to overnight.

  1. I just made this recipe today and oh.my.god. It is amazing!!! I just made a couple minor tweaks:
    1 – I used 3/4 cup of cocoa instead of 1/2. This made it super rich and chocolaty so if you don’t want it super rich, I would stick to the original.
    2 – I added 1/4 tsp of fine ground sea salt to the peanut butter to balance out all of the sweet. I used Jiff peanut butter, so maybe other brands won’t need this.

    I am so serious when I say I will never buy store bought ice cream again. You’re really onto something here with your no-churn recipes!

    1. So glad you liked it! Your tweaks sound delicious! Hope you’ll try more of our no churn ice cream recipes. They’re all delicious!

  2. My kids will love this!

    1. Yes They will! Hope you’ll try it for them!

  3. I love all things chocolate peanut butter, so this ice cream is calling my name!

    Beating heavy cream at high speed for 10-15 minutes? Won’t it turn into butter beating that long?

    1. Ive made butter in my kitchenaid on high and it took about 20 minutes of mixing, but you’re right, 15 is probably too long. I altered the directions accordingly. Thanks.

  7. You are definitely the no churn queen and have such an awesome variety of flavors! This one looks awesome – I don’t think you can go wrong with chocolate and peanut butter!
