Spring is starting to peak out, depending on where you live of course. I live in the Sunshine state where, yes you guessed it, it is almost always sunny. I am originally from up north but I have since shed all my fur because I can no longer stand to be in the cold! Down here women have there fur coats on when the temperature hits 55 degrees, and the gloves and scarves come out at about 60. It is most definitively heating up in Florida and on some days I am in need of a cold, delicious retreat.
I found a recipe for this delicious dessert while trying to find a way to curb my peanut butter craving. This dessert is for Peanut Butter Brittle Ice cream Pops- the name itself makes your mouth begin to tingle. The best part about this recipe is that it is simple and actually a fun activity that can be done with a group of girlfriends, your children, or maybe even a unique date night.
Here is all you need: fudge sauce, roasted salted peanuts, reeses candy, peanut butter, vanilla ice cream, paper cups, and Popsicle sticks.
To make these delicious delights here’s what you do:
Make sure the ice cream is nice and soft so it is easy to spoon into your paper cups; let the container sit out on the counter for about 5-10 minutes
Finely chop the roasted salted peanuts and place them in the bottom of your cup
Roughly chop the Reese candy (you can chop these into as large or small pieces as you would like)
Heat up the peanut butter and fudge sauce in the microwave ,for fast results, for about 30 seconds each
Smooth the ice cream over the chopped nuts and create a smooth layer
Add the warm fudge sauce followed by another layer of chopped nuts and a smooth ice cream layer
Spoon in peanut butter and sprinkle Reese candy bits over top
Add another smoothed layer of vanilla ice cream
Insert the Popsicle stick so it goes through to about 3/4 way into the dessert; sprinkle a final layer of nuts over top for some texture
Place in the freezer for 2-3 hours and wait until layers have solidified
Now you can peel away the paper cup and enjoy!
