This easy and decadent Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream Pie only needs 5 ingredients, and will be a quick family favorite!! This is my weakness! Making ice cream cake at home has never been easier (or more delicious!)
Getting back from our trip, I’m not gonna lie, I feel overwhelmed. I just feel so behind and have so much going on. It’s all good stuff…but how can I get it all done? I’m not the best with stress. I tend to shut down. And eat chocolate. Is that so wrong??
A couple months ago I made an Easy Mint Chip Ice Cream Pie, and then last month I made a Strawberry Lemonade Freezer Pie. Both were SUPER easy and made in the blink of an eye. I decided it was time to make one using two of my favorite flavors, peanut butter and chocolate. This pie is just what I need to feed my stress. My husband will be lucky if he gets any…Give me all the chocolate and peanut butter. All of it. We had such a great time in Jamaica. I was forced to wear a swimsuit for the first time all summer (I did so well avoiding the inevitable until August!). But now…that’s behind us. I need pie. Ice cream pie. Please and thank you.
Easy and delicious Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream Pie is a quick favorite! Works like a charm!
