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. 🙂

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. 🙂

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. 😉

Description

This ultra decadent Snickers Peanut Butter Brownie Ice Cream Cake has layers of fudgy brownie, chopped Snickers bars, peanut butter ice cream, caramel sauce and chocolate sauce! It’s your favorite candy bar in ice cream cake form.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

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.

BROWNIES:

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.

Notes

Serves 12-14.

    OHMAHGAWD shut the front door. My mouth actually dropped open when I saw that photo. There is just too much deliciousness going on here. I LOVE this!

    Oh. My. God. I’m not a fan of snickers, peanut butter OR brownies but I would eat this up with no problem! Looks AMAZING!

  3. Jess @ On Sugar Mountain

    I don’t even know how to properly express my excitement about this cake. I think the best way would be to say:

    “DUDEEEEEEEEEE” 😀

    This looks OMG heavenly. I am scared to show anyone because they’re going to want me to make it! Question though, cuz I’m confused… You freeze the ice cream before you start layering right? It didn’t say that but I feel like the second brownie would just squish the poor ice cream mixture.

    1. Life, Love and Sugar

      Hey Carrie! Actually you don’t. The brownies are fairly thin, so not heavy. And the ice cream is pretty thick, even before freezing. It holds up fine for layering. You could freeze it after the first layer of ice cream, before the second brownie if you wanted to though. Either way, it’ll work 🙂

      1. Carrie

        That makes it even more awesome! Okay, I may have to get this in sometime soon. I can only IMAGINE how crazy good this is.
