Before you start to make this peanut butter chocolate ice cream recipe, measure and prepare your ingredients so the cooking process will go smoothly and easily.
Heavy whipping cream- you will need 2 cups of heavy whipping cream whipped into stiff peaks.
Peanut butter- any kind of peanut butter will work for this recipe, natural, processed, chunky, or smooth. We prefer to use smooth store-bought peanut butter.
Condensed milk– the second ingredient for this recipe Is condensed milk, you will need 1 cup of your favorite brand of condensed milk.
Cocoa powder- we like to use Dutch cocoa powder, it gives a richer chocolate taste. Regular cocoa powder will work great as well.
Chocolate chips (optional) – we like to top the chocolate ice cream with chocolate chips for extra chocolate and a fun crunch. This step is completely optional.
Peanut butter cups- we like adding chunks of peanut butter cups on top. This step is optional.
Step 1: In a big mixing bowl, add the heavy cream. Whip it with an electric hand mixer for 5-8 minutes or until stiff peaks form.
Step 2: Add the condensed milk and the peanut butter and whip on low speed until well combined.

Step 3: Sift in the cocoa powder to the mixture and lightly fold with a spatula until well combined. Give the mixture a last mix with the hand mixer to break any cocoa powder lumps.
Step 4: Transfer the ice cream mixture into a freezer-friendly container (we used a metal loaf pan).
Step 5: Smooth out the top and top with peanut butter cup chunks. Cover the container with plastic wrap and place the container in the freezer for at least 4 hours. Once frozen, scoop with an ice cream scooper and serve!
- Sift the cocoa powder! Cocoa powder tends to have lumps in it so we always sift the cocoa powder before adding it to the ice cream mixture.
- Keep your bowl, whisks, and your ingredients cold. Cold cream whipped faster and better!
- Don’t try to replace one of the ingredients with lower fat ingredients. The heavy cream is very important in this recipe and what makes this recipe foolproof.
- Add some add-ins! Make this ice cream your own and add your favorite flavors and add-ins like salted caramel, brownies pieces, chocolate chunks, nuts, edible cookie dough, M&M’s, etc.
Serve this ice cream with whipped cream and chocolate syrup or caramel syrup. Another way to serve the ice cream is with homemade crepes or pancakes!
Yes, you can add any of your favorite toppings to this recipe! You can add a crushed chocolate bar, crushed chocolate cookies, caramel sauce, white chocolate chips, nuts, etc.
Big mixing bowl– we mix the ingredients in a big mixing bowl, grab your favorite one.
Electric hand mixer/ stand mixer– to whip the heavy cream with the rest of the ingredients.
A container for the ice cream- a freezer-friendly container. We used a metal loaf pan.
Dairy-free – replace the heavy whipping cream with vegan heavy whipping cream, and replace the condensed milk with vegan condensed milk. Cocoa powder and chocolate chips are vegan, so you won’t need to replace them.
