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. 😉

Snickers Peanut Butter Brownie Ice Cream Cake

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.


  • 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


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.


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.


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.


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.

    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

    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.

    I just made this last night and it was a hit! Everyone loved it 😀 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.

    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?


      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.

    Could I use plain vanilla ice cream? I might be the only one who does not enjoy the flavor of peanut butter and chocolate together. Thanks


      Definitely! You can leave out the peanut butter and add 1-2 tsp of vanilla extract, or use a store bought ice cream.

    Hi! I wanted to make thus but was concerned about the sauces. Do they freeze? Do you put the sauces on the top right be fore serving or put them on then freeze.
