It only takes about 15 minutes to throw together and it easily serves a crowd! You’ll be in pb heaven. Plus look at all that chocolate 😍
Inspiration for recipes can come from the weirdest places. Soon I’ll be sharing a cookie recipe with you that was inspired by a cookie I got on my last flight > that’s right, airplane food 😂
But the inspiration for this cake dates back to my childhood. Does anyone remember Viennettas?
I’m not even sure if they sell them anymore but I remember you used to get one when you ordered the family bucket at KFC 😂 – it was my fave.
The classic vienetta is a vanilla ice cream cake made with very soft, melt-in-your-mouth, ice cream with thin layers of chocolate in the middle. It was the best. So I wanted to try and create something similar at home.
Peanut butter and chocolate are just the perfect match ❤️
Layered with thin shards of dark chocolate amidst clouds of homemade 3 ingredient peanut butter ice cream, this cake is a real treat. And the fact that it can be made in minutes is just the icing on the cake.
It does need to set overnight, so it’s best to make this the night before serving. But once it’s ready, all you have to do is pour over melted chocolate and slice away!
It may look like there is a special trick to getting those gorgeous layers but there really isn’t. You actually can’t go wrong. All you have to do is alternate ice cream and melted chocolate and voila! A peanut butter masterpiece! ❤️
One that’s perfect for sharing with your peanut butter loving friends and family. Trust me when I say, people will ask for seconds. Or is that just me?
So I’m officially on holidays in just a few days. We are off to Tokyo for a week and I CAN’T WAIT. I’m so excited to eat all the ramen and gyoza and ramen.
I’m also very interested to try all the creative Japanese desserts I’ve seen on Instagram. Oh and sightseeing of course. We’ll squeeze that in, in-between meals 😂
I’ll be sharing some highlights on Instagram Stories so make sure you follow along! And don’t forget to take a photo and tag #sweetestmenu if you make this Peanut Butter Ice Cream Cake! P.S. You really need to. It’s AMAZING.
