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. ๐Ÿ™‚

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. ๐Ÿ™‚

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. ๐Ÿ˜‰

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 ofย homemade whipped cream)
  • 1 20 oz bottle chocolate sundae syrup (Here’s theย one I used)
  • 1 20 oz bottle caramel sundae syrup
  • 1 11.5 oz bag mini snickers, chopped, divided into three groups

Instructions

NOTE:ย 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:ย 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.

    I would like to make this cake – looks yummy! The link to how you used the parchment paper doesn’t work – could you re-post it?

  2. Luce

    Hi Lindsay,

    The link is broken to the homemade whipped cream. Could you please fix this as we don’t have Cool Whip here in Australia,

    Thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Scarlet

    This is such a pretty ice cream cake! My son is all about the peanut butter and chocolate combo lately so this should be a fun recipe to try. Pinning now to make soon!

  4. Holly

    Many issues trying to make this cake. Where do I start? The title has “ice cream” in it but this cake has no ice cream so that was misleading. The peanut butter “mixture” did not resemble ice cream at all. The whole layering it using parchment paper that is taller (needs to be much taller) than the pan was a huge MESS! And then 1/2 cup of 2 diff. kinds of syrup which does not harden and was ooey gooey all over the place. Sadly, I was taken aback by the cool “instagram worthy” photo but my cake did not come close to looking like that perfect thing. You got me…this was a PINTEREST FAIL! Everyone in the family got a laugh out of it…

  5. Jill Roberts @ WellnessGeeky

    Wow..I am obsessed with desserts! These are so Instagrammable and adorable! Definitely snickers peanut butter brownie ice-cream cake will be yummy! I’m seriously so inspired right now. I need to add cinnamon to recipe and it would be perfect. Thx for sharing Lindsay!

  6. Stephanie

    How well do you think this would travel after freezing? I have about an hour drive. I have a styrofoam cooler. Any ideas? Thanks!

    1. Lindsay

      I *think* it should be ok in the cooler, maybe with an ice pack or two if there’s room. You might want to try and put it in a freezer once you get to your destination though, if it won’t be served right away.

  7. Rose

    Hi Lindsay!

    This looks incredible! ย I followed your instructions to reduce brownie baking time to 20 mins and it’s very gooey and underdone. ย Set on the edges but gooey inside. ย Is it supposed to be like that? ย I am about to throw it away. ย Thank you!

  8. Obat Tinggi

    This ice cream brownie look so tasty. My kids will love this recipe. Thanks Lindsay for share this lovely recipe

  9. Christine

    This looks so delicious! ย I was wondering if it would work if I made a single layer version in a 9×13 pan? ย 

  10. Mandy Sevier

    I made this during a big family vacation 2 weeks ago after finding the recipe while driving. I didn’t have access to all of the needed pans and such but made it work…and everyone loved it! Delicious!

  11. Jennifer K

    Hiya, I made this as a birthday cake. When i took it out of the parchment lined spring form pan at the end the chocolate sauce all ran out. How did you stop that from happening on yours?

    I had left it in the freezer overnight and everything else had firmed up nicely and I used the chocolate topping that you linked in the recipe.

    1. Lindsay

      Hmm, it can start to drip down a bit, but it shouldn’t all run out as long as you don’t leave the cake sitting out for too long.

  12. Pawanjit

    Hi. I love snickers. I would love to make this for my grandma’s birthday. But snickers have eggs in them. I can substitute eggs in cake but snickers??? Please let me know if it’s possible.ย 

  13. eva Hagopian

    Hey there. I wanted to make this cake for my husbands birthday. I want to make it the day before so I’m not waiting til the last minute but if the brownie freezes I won’t be able to cut it. Do you have to assemble it right before you serve it so the brownie doesn’t freeze? How long do you let it set?

    1. Lindsay

      I usually freeze it overnight then let it sit out for 30-45 minutes for cutting into it. It’ll be firm, but a sharp knife should do the trick just fine. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Lindsay

      That would likely depend a bit on how cold your freezer is. Five hours could be long enough, or it could need a bit longer.

  14. Sherri Nunez

    This looks so delicious! Iโ€™ve been having a hard time with making ice cream cakes. My daughter requested one for her birthday and Iโ€™ve been wanting to make it myself but each attempt has gone poorly. Iโ€™m gonna give this a try and see how it goes! Thanks.

  15. Stacy

    Just made this last night and it was amazing! It combines all of my stepson favorite desserts so we made it for his birthday. So rich, but not insanely sweet. I will definitely make it again maybe with a different candy as the snickers get very hard when frozen. Thanks for the recipe!

  16. Stacey

    Hi,
    I’m making this cake today for a party tomorrow night.
    Just curious, how long before serving should it be taken out of the freezer?
    Thanks in advance

  17. Grace

    Hi! I actually made this yesterday for my daughter’s birthday to be served tonight. This cake is very decadent. Rich. Uber peanut buttery. Sinfully sweet so beware. LOL! I love it though it is very rich for me. I would make the ice cream part either plain vanilla flavored or put half cup of peanut butter instead of one and a half cups. Thank you for sharing the recipe.

  18. Gabs

    I just made this last night and it was a hit! Everyone loved it ๐Ÿ˜€ Made it with the homemade whipped cream… Yum! I did make some changes though… Like used a gluten free brownie mix, homemade dulce de leche instead of the caramel sauce and only put the snickers, chocolate and dulce de leche layer on the top of the cake. But it was definitely sweet enough. That is the only warning I would give… This big buy is SWEET and RICH you only need a tiny slice to really enjoy it. But EVERYONE will love it. And yes, the homemade ice cream is THAT good.

  19. kat

    I love this cake and decided to make it for my boyfriend for his birthday, but I forgot to put parchament paper around the spingform and went crazy with assembling everything. Will this ruin the cake in any way?

    1. lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com

      The parchment paper should extend above the edges of the pan, since the cake can be fairly tall. But if you already assembled it and everything fit, it should be fine. The other useful thing about the parchment paper is it helps the cake not stick to the pan. But it should be fine.

    Im just wondering could I use twix chocolate
    Instead and do you think it would taste good with the
    Peanutbutter and other ingredients in this cake?
    Thanks

    1. lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com

      I don’t know if the peanut butter would compliment the twix or not. You could try replacing the peanut butter with some caramel. I love twix – sounds great!

  27. Clevercook

    I made this today for my daughter’s boyfriend’s birthday. I did not have an 8 inch springform pan so I used a 9 inch instead. I used 2 brownie mixes and used about 3/4 of each batter for each layer. ( I made cupcakes with the remaining brownie batter). I ended up baking each brownie layer for 30 minutes because mine were a bit thicker. I was concerned that my peanut butter layers would be too thin with the 9 inch pan but that was not the case. Dumping 1/2 cup of carmel sauce and chocolate sauce not once but twice was causing me some concern about the potential mess I was going to make. Layering the cake went well but when I removed the parchment paper and sides of the springform pan (after sitting in the freezer for 8 hours), some of the chocolate/ caramel started oozing out. I put it back in the freezer with wax paper to catch the drizzling and it all eventually froze. I would suggest making this cake the night before so everything can harden up and hopefully the mess can be eliminated. The peanut butter layer to me did not resemble ice cream. It was more like the consistency of peanut butter pie. Nonetheless, this cake was over the top sweet and everyone loved it. My family suggested writing in my review that each piece is a meal in itself because it is so rich and filling…and don’t forget to serve with a big glass of milk!!

  32. Izzah

    This look delish!! I just have a question thought? How long can you leave the cake out until the icecream starts to run? Would the ice cream run?

    1. lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com

      It’s pretty thick, so it probably won’t run. It will get very soft though and could eventually kind of fall apart. I’ve had it out for about an hour or so before and it was pretty soft at that point, but still fine and sliceable. Every still loved it like that, but it depends on how firm you want it to be.

    From beginning to end, how long does this take to make? Just wandering if I could start making it today and it would be ready to eat tomorrow. How long does it take to freeze? and if I dont have the springform pans, will it come out okay?

    1. lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com

      Hi Ashley! Yes, if you make it today, you can have it ready for tomorrow. Making the brownies shouldn’t take long – they are from a box. Mixing together the ice cream is very quick since you don’t need an ice cream machine. Once the brownies are cool and the ice cream mixture is all mixed together, it’s just a matter of layering everything and freezing. If you can make it today and let it freeze overnight, that’d be best. I’d say 5-7 hours freeze time deepening on how cold your freezer is set. You don’t have to have a springform pan. In fact, I’ve used a regular cake pan. Just make sure that whatever you make the brownies in is what you use to layer everything so it’s all the same width. When not using a spring form pan, you are going to want to put a cardboard cake board or something on the bottom so that when you remove the cake, you have something it’s resting on. You’ll also want to make sure to have some saran warp underneath that board that goes all the way up the sides – you’ll use that to pull the cake out of the cake pan once it’s frozen. If you have any other questions, just let me know.

    hi i wondered if i meet u.i will ask a slice brownie cake.why can’t u open a branch in india.u might hear god’s own country-kerala.so it my request.so i could eat such a yummy dish.

  40. Merv

    Hi there,
    I made this cake last night and can’t wait to dig in!! I have a question. Do you need to take this out of the freezer for long before you slice it up? Or is it ok straight out of the freezer? Also if there is any left over will it have to be stored in the freezer or can it sit in the fridge?

    I also made the no bake oreo cheesecake… it was amazing!!!

    1. lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com

      You could take it out 5-10 minutes before cutting, to soften it a bit if you want. I’ve had people say that it did well in the fridge, so I think that’s up to you. It should be firm enough.

      I’m so glad you liked the cheesecake! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I made the Snickers Peanut Butter Brownie Ice Cream Cake for our Super Bowl Party but, made several changes. Since my hubby has diabetic tendencies I substitued sugar free brownie mix, sugar free cool whip and used the sugar free Smuckers Syrups. I also used almond milk and 1/3 fat cream cheese. It was STILL fantastic! No one knew I had made a lower sugar version. Next time I make it I’ll substifute in egg beaters and apple sauce for the oil when I make the brownies. It was such a hit, I’ll be making this delicious recipe again. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe!!

    This cake looks fantastic!! If I add chocolate syrup to the ice cream mixture, will it compromise anything? I am wanting to make this for my friend for her birthday, and she loves chocolate, so I was thinking of trying to make it more of a chocolate peanut butter. Either that, or do you have a suggestion for straight chocolate ice cream that I could replace one of the layers with?

    1. lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com

      I’d recommend using cocoa instead of chocolate syrup, like in this recipe. If you want to add chocolate to the full ice cream recipe, add about 1/2 cup cocoa.

  55. Farrah

    Hello! ๐Ÿ™‚
    Thank you for sharing this recipe and i can’t wait to try it out. I was wondering, is there any alternative to cream cheese? I’m really hoping there is because I don’t quite like the taste of it ๐Ÿ™

    Thank you!

    1. lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com

      I haven’t tried it before, but I’ve seen other no-machine ice cream recipes that use sweetened condensed milk. You could try that instead of the cream cheese (though I might leave out the milk as well if you do), I’m just not really sure how it would turn out.

    1. lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com

      Hi Stacy! Yes you can – just leave out the peanut butter and add 1-2 tsp of vanilla extract.

  56. shamene@sayitwithcake

    Hi Your cake looks amazing!! I want to try to make it soon, I can’t wait!! How high above the pan is the cake while it is freezing? After it is done freezing, do you have to dowel it or does it stay on its own? Pinning it!!!

    1. lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com

      Hi Shamene! Thank you! It’s probably an inch or so above the top of the pan (I just use parchment paper that goes up that high). No need to dowel it – once it’s frozen it doesn’t budge. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for sharing it!

  57. Anika

    O.M.G. This looks amazing. I have little to no baking skills, but I might even be able to manage this. I have to try it. Thanks for sharing.

    I am making this cake tomorrow for my husbands birthday and I am super excited about doing it. But I have come to a stand still on assembling the cake I have two 8 inch springform pans and they are about 3 1/2 – 4 inches tall, do you layer it in one pan. How do you keep it to hold shape?

    1. lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com

      Hi Tasha – yes, I layer it in an 8×3 inch pan usually. I put parchment paper around the edges that sticks up above the sides and it holds it all fine. The ice cream mixture is pretty thick. Here’s a link to show you.

    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.

    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.

      I’d say 6 or 7 hours probably. It might depend a little on different freezer settings though. It should be pretty solid before you remove it from the pan.

      Hi Larsa! You don’t have to cover it, it will be fine. I don’t usually cover it. Unless you have things in the freezer that might transfer flavors and stuff – then you might want to cover it.

    1. Life, Love and Sugar

      Hi Larsa! It’s an ice cream that you don’t need an ice cream machine to make. The combination of cream cheese, milk, sugar, peanut butter and cool whip (or homemade whipped cream) makes the ice cream. In this recipe it’s nice because even before freezing it, it’s fairly thick. So you can layer everything and then freeze it all at once. There’s not a lot of waiting in between layers or anything.

    I am planning on making this for my wife’s birthday, now seeing as I’m for Australia and can’t get a hold of cool whip could I just use whipped cream????

    1. Life, Love and Sugar

      Hi Brendon! Yes, you can. I’ve had that question a few times so I tried it out. It worked well for me with 1 cup of heavy whipping cream, 2 tbsp of powdered sugar and 1 tsp of vanilla.

      1. Brendon Callaghan

        thanx heaps, do you just put all those ingrediants in together and mix or is there a method??

      2. Life, Love and Sugar

        I’m actually working on a post for that at this moment! You want to put the metal bowl and whisk you’ll be using to make it in the freezer for about 15-20 mintues to get it good and cold. When it’s ready, add the heavy whipping cream and powdered sugar (sifted) to the bowl and mix with a mixer (or whisk by hand) on medium speed. It will get kind of bubbly at first and then start to thicken. Once it’s started to thicken, add the vanilla extract. Keep mixing until it’s totally thickened and you have soft peaks (to tell if you have soft peaks, pull the whisk out and if you get a peak that barely folds over at the top, it’s done). The mixing should take about 5-7 minutes total.

  93. Marion Lowings

    Hallo
    I am enquiring about your snickers peanut butter brownie ice cream cake….
    I am not familiar with oz’s. You mentioned an ingrediant ‘8 oz cream cheese…how much is it in millimeters, grams or cups? And what is cool whip?
    Hope to hear from you soon
    Kind regards
    Marion

    1. Life, Love and Sugar

      Hi Marion! I just went and measured for you – 8 oz of cream cheese is 225 grams. Cool Whip is a whipped cream you can buy in grocery stores in the U.S. If you can’t buy it where you are, you can use whipping cream. Since I’ve had that question a few times I tried it out and it worked great with 1 cup of heavy whipping cream, 2 tbsp of powdered sugar and 1 tsp of vanilla.

  94. apriljoannea

    I want to make this today but im confused by one thing, in your picture the cake looks fairly tall, but I dont think I can stack the two layers of ice cream and brow ie in my standard 8 inch cake pan and have it look that width, is your pan a different depth? maybe it just looks thicker in the picture?

    1. Life, Love and Sugar

      It is a fairly tall cake. I used an 8 inch by 3 inch cake pan (from Michaels). But if you line your pan with parchment paper that sticks up above the top of a standard 2 in tall cake pan, you should be fine. The ice cream is fairly thick even before freezing and will stand up well. Of course you can always freeze it in 2 sections and then combine them if you want.

      1. Leo

        I’m a little confused as to how you lined it. How did you make it to stay> Can you describe it in detail? thanks

      2. lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com

        Hi Leo, here is a picture of the general set up. I have the parchment paper around the outside and in the bottom of the pan. I also sometimes put a cardboard cake circle in the bottom of the pan so that it’s easy to lift the cake out. I hope that helps!

    1. Life, Love and Sugar

      You could, but the brownie box mix may end up making really thin layers and the ice cream layers would also be thinner.

  95. Aviva

    Hi “SINFUL” what more can i say!!!!!! Question how long can this be kept in the freezer? I would like to make it ahead of time, does it hold up well? Like maybe wrapped in plastic wrap/foil and kept in pan till i need and how do you feel about scratch brownies or not worth the time in this cake because everything else is so decadent? I will be making this with fresh whipping cream, i saw your measurements for that! Thanks

    1. Life, Love and Sugar

      Hi Aviva! I haven’t had it last long enough to say how long is best in the freezer, but I’d image like most frozen things you’d want to watch out for freezer burn. If it’s wrapped well I would think it’d be fine for a couple weeks. I think scratch brownies would be great. I don’t know how much you’d notice though given everything else around them and that they’re frozen.

    […] as today’s pick. If the photo doesn’t entice you, how about the name of the recipe: Snicker’s Peanut Butter Brownie Ice Cream Cake. […]

    1. Life, Love and Sugar

      You’d definitely lose some volume without the cool whip. I don’t know how whipping cream would do. I’m not sure if it would hold up or not.

    2. Life, Love and Sugar

      Hi Katie, just wanted to let you know that after getting this question a few times I decided to test it out this weekend and whipping cream works great! I used a cup of heavy whipping cream, 2 tbsp of powdered sugar and 1 tsp of vanilla.

      1. Brittany

        So I was completely excited about this yummy looking cake! I just made it and it was a complete failure…haha but on the upside, the chocolate gooey goodness tasted pretty good….lol

      2. Life, Love and Sugar

        Hi Brittany, I’m sorry to hear that! Can you describe what seems to have happened – I’d be happy to try and help. Did it freeze long enough? I made it again this past weekend and it seemed like it took forever to freeze all the way because I couldn’t wait to eat it!

      3. Kiri

        This looks incredible!! Here in Australia we don’t have cool whip so I don’t know anything about it. In substituting the whipping cream (and this may be a silly question) do you whip it into peaks first?

      4. Life, Love and Sugar

        Hi Kiri! That’s not a dumb question – you do whip it into peaks first. I’ve actually gotten this question a number of times so I tested it myself and used 1 cup heavy whipping cream, 2 tbsp powdered sugar and 1 tsp vanilla.

  98. Mirliisa

    Looks heavenly!!! A definite must try!!
    Curious… is it hard to cut? Concerned it might squish when trying to slice it… or the opposite… too hard to cut??

    1. Life, Love and Sugar

      Thank you! It actually is fine to slice. No different than any other ice cream cake. It definitely doesn’t squish and it’s firm enough to cut without feeling like you’ll break your arm ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Life, Love and Sugar

      Hi Rez! To make vanilla ice cream you can use the same ingredients, but don’t use the peanut butter and add 1-2 tsp of vanilla extract.

  99. Mara

    Oh no, now I’m starving! that looks amazing.
    Could you just use regular store bought ice cream instead of making it? The cool whip scares me…!

    1. Life, Love and Sugar

      Store bought ice cream would definitely work. I use cool whip all the time though – don’t be afraid! ๐Ÿ™‚

    2. apriljoanne

      from my experience, store bought with ice cream cake is just a little harder to work with, the scooping is tough! If you do go that route leave it out awhile so it’s soft er

  107. Carrie

    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 ๐Ÿ™‚

      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.
