These Peanut Butter Dream Ice Cream Bars are an easy no-bake dessert made with ice cream, Nutter Butter cookies and peanut butter cups. One bite and you’ll be in peanut butter heaven!


  • 1 (16 oz) package of Nutter Butter Cookies, crushed
  • 3 Tbsp butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 8 oz semi sweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1 1/2 qts vanilla ice cream, softened
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 cups chopped peanut butter cups


  1. Line a 9×13 baking dish with foil. Set aside.
  2. Mix crushed Nutter Butter Cookies and melted butter together and press evenly into the bottom of your prepared pan. Freeze until ready to use.
  3. In a small saucepan heat your heavy cream until it almost comes to a boil. Remove from heat and stir in your chopped chocolate until melted. Set aside to cool while you do your next steps.
  4. When ice cream is softened to spreadable consistency, spread over Nutter Butter crust.
  5. In a microwave safe bowl heat creamy peanut butter for 20-30 seconds until thin and smooth.
  6. Drizzle peanut butter over your ice cream and using a butter knife, swirl in. The Peanut Butter will set up fast, so work as quickly.
  7. Next pour your cooled chocolate ganache over top and spread evenly.
  8. Sprinkle your chopped peanut butter cups on top immediately so they stick to the ganache.
  9. Cover and freeze for at least 3 hours.
  10. When ready to serve cut into squares.
