A delicious no churn chocolate ice cream made from with a cocoa powder base, full of tons of peanut butter cup chunks and creamy peanut butter swirls.
Happy National Ice Cream Day!! This is the best food holiday all year long, I mean who doesn’t love ice cream?! I’ve fallen in love with no churn ice creams lately, although this custard based ice cream has me convinced I need to make a few more of those as well. 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.
Pin this no churn chocolate peanut butter cup ice cream for later!
Its so hard to choose a favorite, but for today this one is my favorite. Its got a delicious chocolate ice cream made from a cocoa powder base, full of tons of peanut butter cup chunks and creamy peanut butter swirls
And like I’ve mentioned before, I always love the ease of no churn ice creams. Only 2 ingredients for the base, this one has 3 extra ingredients for a total of 5 ingredients and only about 10 minutes of prep time.
But really, chocolate and peanut butter is the best flavor combo – and if you love it as much as I do then you’ll love this ice cream too.
No Churn Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1 cup peanut butter cups (chopped)
- 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)
- In another bowl, combine your condensed milk and cocoa powder.
- Pour your whipped cream into your chocolate condensed milk mixture and fold everything together till combined.
- Melt your peanut butter in the microwave for about 30 seconds.
- 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.
- Cover tightly and place in freezer for 6 hours, up to overnight.

This ice cream is so easy to throw together! I love the old school crank ice cream but sometimes it’s nice to set it and forget it. 😁 My family LOVED this recipe. It’s rich and absolutely delicious!! We will definitely be making it again!!
Wonderful. How cool to have an old school crank ice cream machine too.

Hi Gals, This recipe is my first attempt at making homemade, no-churn ice cream. Wow, it’s a winner, and so easy to make! I didn’t have the peanut butter cups on hand, so threw in some chopped peanuts and leftover Easter chocolate. My husband loved it– Thank you so much! I look forward to trying some of your other no-churn recipes. 🙂
Aimee Berrett says
Kathleen!! Sounds so good with the chopped up candy bars, so glad you liked it! You definitely need to try the peanut butter with fudge and the mint chocolate chip next!
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!
Aimee Berrett says
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!
My kids will love this!
Aimee Berrett says
Yes They will! Hope you’ll try it for them!
I love all things chocolate peanut butter, so this ice cream is calling my name!
Mmmm it looks so good! I love the top pic especially! my favorite flavor combo, chocolate and peanut butter, going to have to give this a try!
You’re speaking to me with this one! I LOVE peanut butter cups!
Beating heavy cream at high speed for 10-15 minutes? Won’t it turn into butter beating that long?
Aimee Berrett says
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.
Shelly Webster says
Usually the cream won’t turn to butter as long as it’s kept very cold. When I had dairy cows, I used to make butter right after milking while the cream was still warm. Otherwise I’d have to skim some from the bulk tank and bring it to room temperature in order to make the butter.
Yvonne [Tried and Tasty] says
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!
