All I can say is I knew this was going to happen. Once the warm weather hit and hit it has, I would be making and re-making No-Churn Ice Cream.
That first time we got our spoons in we were hooked, believe me the choices are endless. Including this Cookies and PB Chocolate Ice Cream Parfait.
We have become a Peanut Butter loving family, well almost all of us, except for the Nutella Queen. I like to kid her and tell her she has no Canadian Blood if she doesn’t like Peanut Butter!
I decided this would be the perfect way to use up some of my Peanut Butter chips I have stashed in the freezer.
This is not my first attempt at making Cookies and PB Chocolate Ice Cream Parfait. I have made a few until I arrived at this creamy delicious Ice Cream Treat.
My husband played the gofer and decided that my first attempt was waaaay too sweet and I had to agree.
The first couple of times I used a chocolate cookie base and I did the Peanut Butter more like my Peanut Butter Fudge filling, yup it was a bit too much.
This time I decided this Ice Cream Parfait needed both fillings, the Chocolate Ice Cream and the Peanut Butter, to be creamy.
I decided a simpler cookie base would work better and the PB should be smoother and creamier, almost mousse like.
Cookies and PB Chocolate Ice Cream Parfait
I found the smaller mason jars to be the perfect size, the cookie crumb layer on the bottom, then a layer of Chocolate Ice Cream, Peanut Butter Mousse and another layer of Ice Cream, of course if you have a “I don’t like PB in your house” person, just add another layer of cookie crumbs.
And of course don’t forget the dollop of Whipped Cream, all of this makes these Cookie and PB Chocolate Ice Cream Parfait the perfect warm weather lets-sit-outside-and-eat-Dessert Dessert. Enjoy!
