Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream Sundae – My Valentine’s Fun Day

Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream Sundae

Ice Cream, We Should Cocoa | 14th February 2018 | By

Well, today is Valentines’s Day and to really show the love, you’ve got to have something chocolatey and decidedly decadent. More importantly today marks the 9th anniversary of this blog. As some of you will know, it started life as Chocolate Log Blog and was a means for me to explore one of my great loves – the world of chocolate. This chocolate peanut butter ice cream sundae seems like a fitting celebration.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream Sundae

If, like me, you’re a peanut butter and chocolate lover then this chocolate peanut butter ice cream sundae is for you too. There’s something very appealing about salt and sweet. You get so many levels of flavour as you spoon into the glass and then into your mouth. The vanilla ice cream sets it all off very nicely.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream Sundae

To start things off, I made some peanut butter blondies with salted dark chocolate chips. As I’m sure you can imagine, they were super scrummy all on their own. I’ll be blogging the recipe at some point in the future. These blondies formed the base of my chocolate peanut butter ice cream sundae. I piled some vanilla ice cream on top. It wasn’t homemade this time, but it was organic. Over this already lush combination, I poured some dark chocolate sauce and then drizzled sweet peanut butter sauce over that. A valentine’s sundae fun day.

Salted Dark Chocolate Sauce

Of course you don’t need to keep such a scrumptious offering as this chocolate peanut butter ice cream sundae just for Valentine’s Day. It would be perfect for any special occasion and can be enjoyed all year round. It should come with a serious sugar and fat overload health warning, but sometimes it’s good not to think about it. My philosophy is, as long as it’s occasional, it’s good to indulge from time to time.

All Gone

You can see we polished our chocolate peanut butter ice cream sundae off with relish. In fact, we might just have had one or two more – not on the same day though. Honest!

A decadent but desirable dessert for two, which is also quick and easy (assuming you've already made the blondies / brownies. Of course you could double, triple or quadruple the recipe to enjoy with family and friends.

Course: Dessert
Servings: 2 people
Author: Choclette @ Tin and Thyme
Ingredients
  • 2 peanut butter blondies or brownies
  • 4 scoops vanilla ice cream
  • 4 chocolate sugar curls - optional
Salted Dark Chocolate Sauce
  • 25 ml water
  • 1 tsp dark muscovado sugar
  • 50 g salted dark chocolate I used Divine's 70% with pink Himalayan rock salt
  • 50 ml double cream
Sweet Peanut Sauce
  • 50 ml water
  • 1 rounded tsp of light muscovado sugar
  • 1 tbsp smooth salted peanut butter
Instructions
  1. Cube the blondies and place in a sundae dish or glass.
  2. Pile in 2 scoops of ice cream.
  3. Pour some hot chocolate sauce over the top and watch it freeze.
  4. Drizzle over a little of the peanut butter sauce.
  5. Add a couple of sugar curls, if you like, and tuck in.

Salted Dark Chocolate Sauce
  1. Place the water and sugar into a small pan and bring to a simmer to melt the sugar.
  2. Turn the heat off and add the chocolate. Stir until melted.
  3. Stir in the cream and gently reheat if necessary.
Sweet peanut butter sauce.
  1. Whilst the chocolate is melting, place all ingredients into a small pan and slowly bring to the boil, whisking as you go. It will look terribly gloopy to begin with, but will come together if you keep stirring. Add a little more water if the mixture is too thick.

Recipe Notes

If you can't get hold of salted chocolate, just add a small pinch of sea or rock salt to the water and sugar.

    Congratulations on 9 years – that is a great achievement – and a lot of chocolate delights. Love the sundae – I am not so into them by my 8 year old is so I will need to return here for inspiration next time she is hankering for one.

      Thanks Johanna. I just find it astonishing that 9 years has passed so fast. And you have an 8 year old already – how did that happen?
